COOPERSTOWN – Lamb Realty has just lowered the price for the former CVS at 100 Main St., empty for three years, from $1.4 million to $815,000, according to today’s real-estate section in The Freeman’s Journal & Hometown Oneonta.
“I spoke to the owners,” said Realtor Nancy Angerer. “We discussed it, and looked at other commercial property, looked at the square footage, and made the decision to lower it.”
At the new price, she said, she has potential buyers.

COOPERSTOWN – Fortune 100 CVS Health has delayed closing on the Cooperstown Motel property for a third time, receiving an extension until Nov. 21, Martin Tillapaugh, attorney for the Al O’Brien estate, said today.
“The fire at the motel really threw a monkey wrench in the middle of everything,” said Tillapaugh, referring to the Aug. 9 suspected arson at the corner of Chestnut and Beaver streets. At the time, CVS had expected to close on the property “within a few days,” he said.
