The store - under construction all summer - is projected to open Oct. 15, if everything goes according to schedule with the city's permit process currently under way, store officials said.
The store will host a grand opening, most likely a week or so after the store opens.
Special promotions have not been determined, according to Paul Schleicher, store manager for the Walgreens at 3255 Washtenaw Ave. and community leader for the new location.
“It probably will be something around flu shots,” he said.
The hiring process for the new store is under way and Schleicher is starting to pull applications this week.
“We will hire probably 15-20 new employees," he said. "We do have some employees who will be transferring to the new store as well.”
The free standing building was constructed on property formerly occupied by Schlotszky’s Deli and KFC. Agree Realty of Farmington Hills developed the store.
“The construction process went very smoothly” says Schleicher. “The store went up real quick.”
