A new CVS in downtown Auburn has created new jobs and convenient shopping for people who live and work nearby, specifically students, staff, and faculty at Auburn University.
The new shopping and pharmacy center, which has been open for a few weeks now, is located just outside of downtown Auburn along College Street, next to the AU Hotel and Conference Center.
"I think it is so nice, we run over all the time and get stuff for the lab, so it's great," said AU professor Wendy Hood.
"I just love it, run over from work and shop, the staff is so nice and helpful, so I am happy it is just fantastic," added Tomekia Radford, AU professor.
Just next door to the new CVS, the plaza is extended as workers finish up construction on more retail space.
City officials won't name the business that will locate here, but say the space will house a few new restaurants and retail stores.
