Walgreens store in Franklin
Walgreens new site in Franklin is under construction on La. 182 at its intersection with Northwest Boulevard. A representative told the Franklin City Council late in 2012 that the facility will be a full-sized store and employ 30-50 workers. Construction time was estimated at about seven months. The construction includes an extension of Northwest Boulevard across La. 182 to the store which will potentially open the area up to further development. The store is being constructed by GHK Developments Inc. which is based in New Orleans.
