  • Three new Walgreens stores are in the works for Greece. They are to be located at Mount Read Boulevard and Maiden Lane Road, West Ridge and Long Pond roads, and the northwest corner of Latta and Long Pond roads.
    Here’s the latest:
    • The Mount Read Boulevard location opened last Thursday.
    • Work on the store at West Ridge and Long Pond roads has been stalled for weeks, drawing an outcry from residents. The developer stopped work due to financial reasons, said Gary Tajkowski, the Greece director of development services. He said he received an email from the developer, Hart Lyman Companies, saying the project “might resume” within a week or two. Tajkowski estimated that if the project was to begin again, it would be completed in three to four months. The store has been in the works for nearly three years, says Tajkowski. “The approvals were gained three years ago, but the details had to be worked out between the developer and property owners. “That dragged on for a considerable time, and they finally broke ground earlier this year or late last year. They were going well and suddenly they up and left.”
    • The Latta and Long Pond Road store was recently granted approval from the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals, Tajkowski said. The 9.5-acre site wraps around Ricci’s Restaurant, he said, with frontage on both Latta and Long Pond roads. The developer, Benderson Development, looks to start construction on the project this year.
