This Saturday, the Beijing Restaurant will finally close, after holding up for more than a year to CVS. The restaurant owners have accepted a lease buyout that will allow CVS pharmacy's construction to start sooner.

Mike DeAngelis, a CVS Caremark spokesman, said that the construction and opening of a CVS store usually takes 4 to 5 months. "This accelerates the timetable about a year, with it likely opening in late 2014. If all stays on schedule, demolition and construction would be in the spring of next year," he added.

In fact, some demolition was already done in the entire Superior Street, between 12th and 13th avenues. The demolition razed SuperAmerica station and a nearby house in 2012.

"We're really looking forward to opening at the (Plaza) location. It's a great site, for convenience and access for customers," DeAngelis said.

"Now that that's settling out we'll probably be pursuing other locations in Duluth," said Greg Follmer, a Duluth broker who works with CVS.
