Jim Harbaugh, City Center’s vice president, director of sales, told LVB.com that a full-service pharmacy was an integral part of the downtown’s revitalization plans. “We targeted a downtown full-service pharmacy since the beginning,” Harbaugh said. “It was a critical key to the sustainability of the downtown.” The location, he adds, is one that serves the entire downtown community, where there hasn’t been a full-service pharmacy in more than four years.
