A couple of months ago, Walgreen opened up a new store in the nation’s capital.
The chain was already in the process of expanding to the nation, and today, the chain is set to open its first in the United States, where it will have a new location.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the store will open at 477 F Street NW.
The new store will feature an expanded selection of food, including fresh produce, as well as groceries and grocery items.
The Wall Street Review points out that the store is expected to feature a larger variety of fresh and local produce, along with some of the country’s most popular brands like Trader Joe’s, Trader Joe Fresh and Whole Foods Market.
The Walgrees new locations will help the chain keep its growth momentum going as it looks to expand into more new markets.
The company recently opened its first brick-and-mortar store in Washington, D.C. on Pennsylvania Avenue.
The retail giant recently announced that it is also planning to open a second brick- and-mortars store in Boston later this year.
Walgros retail expansion is also set to expand nationwide as the chain looks to open new locations in as many as 10 cities across the United State.
The New York Times reports that Walgills new store is slated to open in late August, while other stores in the country are scheduled to open by the end of the year.
The grocery chain is also reportedly planning to have about 10,000 employees working in the Washington, DC, area, as it attempts to boost its customer base by providing additional retail outlets and serving as a destination for shoppers to shop.
The new Walgree store is the latest expansion in the chain’s expansion plans, as the company is planning to add as many locations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and Detroit.
The latest expansion of Walgores operations is set for both its locations and its flagship store in New Orleans, as Walgrows plans to open an expanded store in Louisiana.
The stores expansion plan is set in motion in part by a merger between the chain and a company called Walgos, which is the owner of several retail chains in the state.
The deal, however, has been in the works for several years and is expected by some to be completed in 2019.
“We are pleased to announce that we are merging our retail business with Walgops, Inc., the leading provider of food services in the world,” said Walgown, CEO and founder Paul Schulte.
“We have built a strong partnership, which includes a robust customer experience and an exciting vision for the future.
With the new WalGros store, we are adding a new, highly-customized dining experience to our existing stores and we are excited to share this experience with our customers in our new home.
A new Walmart is also on the way.
Walgreen is reportedly planning a new pharmacy in Seattle, and is planning on expanding its food distribution network in the area.
Walgreens announced that its stores would open their doors to the public starting August 11, which will mark the first time the chain has opened a store in America.
According to the New York Post, Walgreen’s new store, which could open by late September, will feature a large assortment of food options and grocery staples, including Whole Foods Markets, Whole Foods, Target, WalMart and Kroger.
