Remodeling is under way on the new Campustown location for Kinko's, which plans to move from 606 S. Sixth St., C, to 613 S. Wright St., C, this spring.
Shop manager Debbie Montgomery said the move is set to take place in mid-May, and the Kinko's on Sixth Street will remain open until then.
The new shop will be a bit smaller than the current one, but will continue to offer the same services, she said.
Kinko's is moving to make way for a planned multistory apartment building, with retail and office spaces, and a parking deck, in the works for the northwest corner of Sixth and Green streets.
