CVS construction ends as drug store chain plans March 20 opening on South State in downtown Ann Arbor
The scaffolding is down, the sign is up and Ann Arbor's latest chain drugstore is on track to open this month with a new look for part of a historic downtown block.
CVS is finalizing the interior of its store at 209-211 S. State St. on the edge of the University of Michigan campus. That work follows months of construction, which included equipment staging in the street outside the store.

That land deal followed city approvals for the store that came in fall 2009.
The $8 million project preserved the historic facade but demolished two houses behind it. New construction followed to create the 13,040-square-foot store over two levels behind the facade.
Hiring for the store is under way, said CVS spokesman Mike DeAngelis. Applications are available at nearby CVS stores in Ann Arbor or online
