The opening of the new Walgreen in Batavia

Oct 01, 2015 01:26PM ● By Neighbors Magazines
For those of you who are curious as to the expected opening of the new Walgreens on Wilson St. downtown, the current project is for the middle of February, 2016. The underground and foundation work are fairly complex because of the former river bank that lies beneath the site as well as the existence of a large storm water line which had to be relocated. This project results from a partnership between the landowner, Batavia Enterprises, Inc and the city, which has committed in excess of $1,000,000 for Tax Increment Financing funds to help keep this important retail presence in the downtown.
