JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A landmark Jonesboro business is being torn down to make way for a pharmacy chain.

Bennett's Nursery and Garden Center, which sat at the corner of Highland and Southwest Drives for 20 years, is being torn down.

Crews spent the day tearing down the building Tuesday.

CVS Pharmacies purchased that lot and the old Harp's lot in 2015.

Though Bennett's will no longer be located at that corner, they aren't closing down for good.

Bennett's will open up a Landscaping and Design Center at 6009 Highway 1 South on March 1.
