Cooperstown Motel Demolition Okayed

Construction of a new CVS store in Cooperstown took a step forward Tuesday after the village’s Historical Preservation and Review gave the go-ahead to demolish the Cooperstown Motel which is where the new store will be built.

The hotel was gutted in a fire last year.

CVS officials say they plan to start building the store in mid-May or early June of this year with the goal of a grand opening in March of 2018.
