Walgreens reopens in Auburn Gresham!


More than one year after looting destroyed a Chicago Walgreens, it is finally back open.

On Thursday, a ribbon cutting was held at the Auburn Gresham store on West 79th Street.

The Walgreens was left in ruins after the civil unrest in May of 2020 following the death of George Floyd.

Alderman David Moore and Father Michael Pfleger were among those on hand for the event.

Community Feedback 

The community would like to offer a huge thank you to the local Walgreens manager, for hanging in there with the local leaders and the community. All present at the ribbon cutting, praised him and gave him a round of applause, for working hard to keep a temporary site open for pharmacy services.
