It's not secret that the we're nearing the completion of the brand new Damon's Beverage store on Bangor Street in Augusta.

Where it is in relation to the old one? Literally in the same parking lot.. However the new Augusta store is bigger than the old one- much, much bigger.

As the new store nears completion, the old one is set to be knocked down. According to a post on the company's Facebook Page, the demolition will begin tomorrow (Wednesday).

With the new building torn down and hauled away, this will make tons of room for a much larger parking lot than already exists at the Bangor Street location.

For years, parking at Damon's in Augusta has been fairly precarious given the store's location and proximity to busy Bangor Street. Though with the old building gone, and the new building in a slightly different location on the property, the new parking lot is expected to be much larger, safer and convenient.

The photo below shows the inside (to the left after walking in the front door) of the new store as staff begin to stock and supply the fresh new shelves and coolers. Peep how much SPACE!
