No neighbors named yet for new Walgreens
Developer seeks other businesses for commercial corner
by Martha Quetsch
Elburnâ€”Walgreens, which opened this month in Elburn, is the anchor store for the Prairie Valley North Commercial Center at the northeast corner of Routes 38 and 47, but so far, it’s not anchoring anything.
The commercial complex offers more than 15,000 square feet of additional available retail space. However, village officials do not know what retail tenants the developer has found for the complex, if any.
Assistant Village Administrator David Morrison has not been able to reach the developer, National Shopping Plazas this week, as he had hoped, to inquire about the commercial center’s progress.
The Elburn Herald contacted the developer’s leasing office on Tuesday to ask whether the company had found any additional retail tenants for the Walgreens complex.
Leasing agent Carol Cutler said, â€œThere are possibilities. I am waiting for signed leases,â€ but she declined to name any potential future tenants.
Prairie Valley North Commercial Center is bordered by Route 47 on the west, First Street on the east, Walker Drive on the north and Route 38 on the south.
