Covington, La. — Stirling Properties has announced the opening of a full-service Walgreens in Terrytown on the Westbank of New Orleans. The new drugstore stands on the site of a former shopping center anchored by an A&P Grocery store and an Eckerd Drug store.
The 17,384-sq.-ft. store has a drive through window and full service pharmacy. Observers say the store may serve as a catalyst for future development in the aging retail corridor. As a preferred developer for the Walgreens Co. in the Gulf South, Stirling provided pre-development services, including lease negotiation, permitting, financing, design and construction and project management.
