SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. - South Burlington is prepping for new businesses.

You already know about Trader Joe's on Dorset Street. Now we're learning Pier One Imports is also moving in across from University Mall. Opening day should be sometime this year.

Across the street, you can see the first beams of a new office building are already up.

"People have been waiting in South Burlington to have their own downtown identity for decades," Kevin Dorn, South Burlington City Manager, said. "That is about to begin to come to fruition with these developments."

An 89 room Homewood Suites will also be opening in South Burlington by the end of the year.
