Walgreens Plans to Open Another Belleville Location

Belleville, New Jersey: Another pharmacy could open in Belleville.

According to a legal notice, Walgreens is planning to open a location in Belleville's main business district at 165-183 Washington Avenue, at the corner of Rutgers Street. WIN Development Belleville LLC has applied to the Belleville Planning Board to demolish several buildings at the site in order to build the pharmacy, which would have 40 parking spaces and a drive-thru. Currently, the former home of The Motorcycle Mall, which was originally used as an A&P Supermarket, stands at the site along a vacant building which used to contain Milt's Photo and Golden Chopsticks Chinese Restaurant.

Walgreens currently has another Belleville location on Franklin Avenue, which used to be a Drug Fair location and two others on Washington Avenue, one of which used to be an ACME market. The Belleville Planning Board will have a public hearing regarding the proposal in April 28th at 7:00pm.
