New Tenant Coming for Old Walgreens on Madison Avenue
There will be a new store operating out of the former Walgreens space on Madison Avenue in Covington.
According to a hand-written sign placed on the door, a Dollar Tree will open in August.
The structure had been vacant since Walgreens moved two blocks south into a newly designed building at the corner of Madison & Martin Luther King Blvd.
Dollar Tree is a discount chain store that sells many of its items for a buck. There are nearly 5,000 stores across the country operated by the Virginia-based company. Locally, there are twenty-seven stores within 25 miles of Downtown Covington, according to the company's website. There are Dollar Tree locations in Latonia, Newport, Crescent Springs, Alexandria, Edgewood, Florence, Burlington, and many more on the Cincinnati side of the river.
Construction crews have been renovating the interior for several weeks.
