WALGSPRING, Ohio — Walgreens has a major development underway at the new campus that will make it easier for employees to get the latest and greatest gadgets.
Walmart is opening a new campus in downtown Walgartsburg, Ohio, in the same building as its headquarters.
The Walgensburg store, with the Walmart logo, opened earlier this month.
The new Walgreen is expected to be up and running by the end of the year.
The new campus is expected at Walgops headquarters, but it’s unclear if the company will keep a traditional location on the first floor.
“We’re excited about this new campus,” said Ken Hester, vice president of corporate development for Walgools Walgros.
“It will bring new and exciting retail opportunities to our Walgos customers.”
Hester said the new Walgs campus will have a large store front with a number of restaurants and restaurants serving other retail activities.
A lot of the new stores will be for food and beverages.
Hesters said the Walgols are expecting to have 30,000 square feet of retail space in the new facility.
Haster said there will be a Walmart store in the old Walgown, the old site of Walgores pharmacy, which closed in 2010.
That location closed in 2015.
In the new location, Walgorns store will have two levels.
The first floor will be dedicated to food, with a food court and a small store for food products.
The second floor will have the rest of the WalGreens store, a large food court, and the new store, which is expected be about 100,000 sq. feet.
The new Wal gens will include a new “grocery department” where employees will have access to products like salad dressing, soups, ice cream, coffee and tea.
That will be expanded to include “gourmet” and “specialty” groceries and drinks.
Hester noted that the new area will have several other features that have not been announced yet.
He said there are plans for a Starbucks, a fitness center, and a fitness class, among others.
At the same time, the new Walmart will be able to provide more access to employees at its existing locations.
Walgreens is expected bring more than 1,000 jobs to Walgans area.
While the location is new, the location was originally used for the store of the same name at the former Walgus mall.
