The wait is nearly over for those wishing to use the new CVS/Pharmacy in Andalusia.

Michael J, DeAngelis, the corporate director of public relations, said the store is on track to open later this month.

On Thursday, details inside were emerging. Department signs were hung on the wall, and it appeared that shelving was soon to be installed.

Crews were working on the outside of the building as well. Workers were making preparations to pave the parking lot, while employees worked to cover the front of the building next door.

Rain could play a factor in the paving of the parking lot, meaning officials couldn’t pinpoint an exact opening date.

DeAngelis said the store still plans to employ approximately 20 people at the new 12,900 square-foot store be located at the corner of U.S. Hwy. 84 and East Three Notch.

According to the corporate website, sites are chosen based on a number of criteria points, including a highly visible and easy accessible location in a high traffic area with parking room for 75 to 80 vehicles.
