Figy's No More

The plans have been in motion for a while now, since Dave and Dana Figueiredo sold the building to CVS a couple months back. Paul’s Live from New York Pizza has since closed
and is looking to open another Arcata locale. Don Juan’s Mexican Restaurant shuttered its doors in April and hasn’t been heard from since. Figueiredo’s Video moved a few blocks north, opening a new store in the Safeway shopping center. And, this week, the building came down.
CVS, which bought out Lima’s Pharmacy’s McKinleyville location back in April
, has yet to officially announce its plans to open the new store.
The old Figueiredo’s building in McKinleyville — once home to a video store, pizzeria and Mexican restaurant — has been reduced to rubble as a Yuba City construction crew works to transform it into a new CVS store.
