A group of protestors will be marching against the proposed Bridgehampton CVS on Thursday, July 3.

Carey Millard, former co-chair of the Bridgehampton Citizens Advisory Committee, has organized the demonstration and will be leading protestors in the march.

The proposal aims to open a new storefront for the national pharmacy chain at the corner of Montauk Highway and the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike, a notoriously busy intersection in Bridgehampton.

CVS is still seeking town approval for the building, which would be two stories high and about 9,000 square feet of retail space. Locals opposed to the pharmacy say the store would increase traffic at the intersection, as well as go against a town code limiting retail establishments to a maximum of 5,000 square feet.

Protestors also state the building’s size would severely limit parking availability in the vicinity of the store.

Demonstrators interested in participating in the march should meet outside Starbucks at 10 a.m.
