Demolition has finally begun between 12th Avenue East and Superior Street in Duluth as crews are working hard to clean up the former strip mall, to make room for a new business.

Many business' went by the wayside, including a gas station to make room for a new CVS store. The actual demolition has been delayed for months because a tenant in the strip mall was looking for a new location. Ironically this CVS store will be right across the street from Walgreens which moved fairly recently into their brand new building .

This seems to be the pattern as CVS built a store in West Duluth right across the street from a Walgreens as well. They say competition is always a good thing, and now people in this part of town will have more options on where to shop, and it will also bring many more jobs to the area too.
