COLUMBUS – Rep. Richard D. Brown (D-Canal Winchester) announced today that the state Tax Credit Authority approved a 1.385 percent, eight-year Job Creation Tax Credit for a new Walgreen Company project in Canal Winchester, located in House District 20.

“I’m excited to see the Walgreen Company investing in our community,” said Rep. Brown. “Their new project will create 200 full-time positions in Canal Winchester, which will bring greater economic opportunities for people in our district. This will also provide our neighbors with increased access to health and wellness services, including prescription medications and vaccinations.”

This new project, expected to be operational by the end of 2022 following development, will use technology and automation to streamline the company’s fulfilment process for online orders. With a nearly $20 million investment, the project is expected to create 200 full-time jobs, primarily Pharmacy Technicians and Assistant Technicians, and $8.5 million in new annual payroll in Canal Winchester. The Walgreen Company will be creating regional micro-fulfillment facilities around the country to help modernize product distribution and the Canal Winchester center will be a part of the new program.
