"It did take a long time, and we had some construction issues at this location, and then of course the weather set us back quite a bit, too," said Walgreens district manager Eric Almasi.
A Barbourville location opened in October, a London location opened in September, and Almasi
said the company is getting ready to open a Pineville location.
"We're really excited to be down in these areas, and they are strategic - we are close to the hospital here, we're close to the traffic down on the other side of town as well, so we know that the script (prescription) count is here and we're really kind of looking to build the business."
said each location will employ between 20 and 25 full- and part-time employees.
will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
Pharmacy hours will be from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
"The closest 24-hour location is in Somerset but we'll see as the population builds and as the business grows, we probably do need a 24-hour location a little bit closer to this area, so we'll see how it goes," Almasi
