Two CVS Pharmacy stores in Queens have been renamed to “CVS Pharmacy y más” to cater to the growing Hispanic community.

The CVS stores in Ridgewood and Jackson Heights were transformed to CVS Pharmacy y más stores in mid November and offer brands and products specifically for Hispanic shoppers.

The stores are two of 12 CVS locations that have been rebranded across the tri-state area in the recent weeks.

The specialty stores offer more than 1,500 products from trusted Hispanic brands, such as Iberia Foods, Yaucono, Fabuloso, Tio Nacho, Pilon and Café La Llave.

The stores also have bilingual staff members and signage for Spanish-speaking customers.

CVS Pharmacy has opened more than 200 CVS Pharmacy y más stores designed specifically for local Hispanic communities across the country since 2015.

“Our CVS Pharmacy y más stores have been hugely beneficial to providing a more inclusive environment and value-based personalized selection for our Hispanic customers,” said Mayra Boitel, Vice President, Chief Merchant of Alternative Formats at CVS Health.

“Customers can access familiar brands they already know and love, speak with a bilingual staff who can clearly answer any questions about their medication regimen, and easily navigate throughout the store to find what they need quickly.”

The two new CVS y más locations are located at:

329-339 Wyckoff Ave. in Ridgewood

89-11 Northern Blvd. in Jackson Heights
