FAIRFIELD — A sign at the corner of North Texas Street and Cement Hill Road proclaims that Walgreens is “coming soon.”
It looks that way. The concrete-block walls of the building are already rising into the air.
The building taking shape at 2590 N. Texas St. was approved by the Fairfield City Council in July 2012. It will be 13,700 square feet and include a drug store, pharmacy and in-store clinic.
Walgreens is to be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It will have 46 parking spaces and a drive-thru pharmacy.
Fairfield already has a Walgreens located at 1955 W. Texas St.
