By Chris Taylor
Metropolis, IL – Metropolis, Illinois will get its first official chain drug store tomorrow, with Walgreens opening its doors at 8:00 am. The 13,000 square-foot building sits at the corner of 10th and Market Streets. It will be the city's second largest retailer, just a bit smaller than Big John's supermarket. The new Walgreens has hired at least 12 local people to work at the store and is one of some 7,000 nationwide.
