Contractors for Davidson College installed a new sign Monday on the former BB&T building at 137 N. Main St., where the campus store is scheduled to open next month.
The college has closed the former campus store in Alvarez College Union, on campus. In a message to employees last week, the college said it hopes to open the new store on Monday, Aug. 13.
Cats on Main, the college’s Davidson Wildcats logo clothing and spirit shop, will remain open until the new store opens, the college says.
Davidson College bought the building in December 2010 for $1.25 million.
