Publish date:

As one major national chain exits the Mall of America, another one is moving in.

Walgreens confirmed on Wednesday that it will be opening a new store at the Bloomington megamall this fall – the first time it's had a presence at the MOA.

It will be found on Level 3, East, where it will sell "a variety of everyday items including cosmetics, gift sets, household items and photo services."

It will be located next to the Jamba Juice at the East Broadway court, though at 7,600 square feet it'll be about half the size of a typical Walgreens store.

The announcement comes just days after Best Buy revealed it'll close its Level 3, West, store at the MOA this August, after choosing not to renew its lease.

"Guests are increasingly looking for convenience when visiting MOA and the services and products that Walgreens offers adds to the top notch guest service and variety Mall of America provides," said Mall of America VP of Leasing Carrie Charleston.

Amanda Viramontes, Walgreens' regional VP for Minnesota, said it will bring "the convenience of Walgreens to the Mall of America," as well as offering "our exclusive beauty and health care brands ... to visitors."

Speaking of the Mall of America, the Wahlberg brothers of Mark, Donnie and Paul will be at the mall on Thursday to mark the official opening of their new restaurant, Wahlburgers.
