At the new price, she said, she has potential buyers.

COOPERSTOWN – CVS’ engineers this morning backed away from a handicapped sidewalk plan that some feared would have created an icy hazard for pedestrians during the winter.

At a special meeting of the village Planning Board, Pat Mitchell of BHB Engineering said handicapped access to the new store at Chestnut and Beaver will now be from the Badger Park side of the lot.

At November Opening

Word is circulating in the Chestnut and Beaver street neighborhood that the new CVS may be opening as soon as early November. Originally, the plan was to shift operations from the downtown Cooperstown store to the new drive-thru store at the south end of the village by next March. In recent weeks, construction activity has stepped up at the new site, with crews working well beyond the usual 7-3 shift. In the past week, the roof structure has been completed, and final shingling was underway today.  No one was available this afternoon at the company’s Rhode Island headquarters for comment.  (AllOTSEGO.com photo)
Demolition Begins On Site Of CVS’ Future Pharmacy

Demolition Begins On Site

Of CVS’ Future Pharmacy

Jake Brown from Burrell’s Excavating, Norwich, smooths over the parking lot of the former Cooperstown Motel a few minutes ago after knocking down a fence and removing utilities from the ground. A small bulldozer is also on site, pushing hundreds of items – from furniture to appliances – from the motel’s basement; already, the bed of one dump truck has been filled and hauled from the property, and more material is being piled up in the property’s southwest corner. Brown said demolition of the building itself will probably begin Monday, and take two days. The hotel burned last Aug. 9, the result of what has been ruled an arson, although no suspects have been arrested. CVS is planning a full-service pharmacy there, to open next March.
