Cleanup In Aisle 9! Crews Rip Up Old Town Walgreens, Piling Mounds Of Dirt And Bricks In The Middle Of The Store
OLD TOWN - If you were buying sunscreen from the Old Town Walgreens, it was in stock Tuesday - but you might have had to climb over a giant pile of dirt and bricks, then avoid falling into a trench, to get it.
A construction crew tore through the convenience store’s floor Tuesday, pulling up brick pavers from a bygone era in the process to replace a failed sewer pipe. They discarded the debris between alcohol, sunscreen and pool floats as shoppers continued to peruse the store.
The work was captured in a now-viral tweet by Chicagoan Michelle Stenzel, showing workers shoulder-deep in the earth in the middle of the store.
