The Illinois-based pharmacy chain is building a 13,100-square-foot store at 898 Horizon South Parkway, which intersects with Wrightsboro Road, city planner Frank Neal said.

“They’ve just about got all the site prep finished, and vertical construction should be starting soon,” Neal said.

The pharmacy will replace a KFC that closed in early March and was demolished about three weeks ago. It’s across from a CVS Pharmacy at 869 Horizon South Parkway.

The new Walgreens will be the first in Grovetown and the 15th location in metro Augusta, including one under construction at the corner of Windsor Spring and Tobacco roads.

It's not a real Walgreen’s unless there is a Five Guys burger joint adjoining. Just ask countyman.

I guess the CVS pharmacy on Horizon South needs to just close up shop and go build a new store across the street from the Rite-Aid. That's today's business model.
