The Safeway at Madison and 22nd is getting a significant overhaul to its pharmacy this year. The expanded space will make way for a care center for increased privacy and comfort, according to store manager Steve Ruud.
“It will offer a better facility for when we do flu shots and things like that,” said Ruud. Though he has not seen the plans yet, DPD records show that the city recently issued a permit for nearly $172,000 worth of work. Rudd was not sure when the work is expected to take place, but it will likely be before the end of the year.
Meanwhile, we reported last week that the Madison Temple Church of God in Christ, which is next door to Safeway, is planning to transform an old car garage space into a multi-purpose programming space before the end of the year.
