Walgreens opening seen in mid-September

       The new Walgreens drugstore at Uintah Gardens is nearing completion and is expected to open in mid-September, “barring any delays from weather etc.,” according to Tiffany Bruce, a spokesperson for the Walgreens corporate office.
       The 14,560 square-foot, free-standing store is being built at the northeast corner of 19th and Uintah streets.
       A changeover from the current Walgreens at Uintah Gardens will occur around the time of the opening, Bruce said. No problems are anticipated with that move. “We will do our best to minimize any disruptions, particularly to pharmacy patients,” she said.
       Walgreens has been at the center since 1974. A major feature of the new store will be a drive- through for prescription pickups.
