Northern Counties Health Care uses the former Caplan’s Army Store to test for COVID

There’s activity inside the former Caplan’s Army Store on Railroad Street today as Northern Counties Health Care uses the space to test for COVID. NCHC is relocating its testing operations inside the downtown store space when temperatures dip below zero. Today is one of those days. NCHC has owned the former Caplan’s, a near-century-old clothing and footwear destination, since October. It had closed at the end of 2020 after liquidating its merchandise. Officials at NCHC have not shared what they intend to do with the space, and Evans said Thursday that the decision is still in progress.
