OLD NEVCO BUILDING COMING DOWN


It’s starting to look different around the intersection of Elm and Harris Streets in Greenville.  Some time ago it was announced that CVS Pharmacy will build a new facility where the old Nevco building is located, on the east side of Elm Street.  Late last week they started to tear down the old Nevco building in preparation for construction of the new CVS.  Here are some pictures of the work being done.
