Lewis Drug to open on west side this week

Sept. 18, 2018

The season of openings continues this week for Lewis Drug, which will open its new west-side store Wednesday.

It’s located at 32nd Street and Ellis Road next to a new Sanford Health medical center. Sanford plans to open in the coming months.

“We decided to wait a couple weeks and make sure everything is ready to go, and it gives us a little more time in between downtown and this one,” said Bob Meyer, Lewis Drug senior vice president of merchandise and marketing.

The downtown store opened in late August.

The new store “will be set with Christmas goods because we’re at the end of the lawn and garden season. Normally, we don’t do that change until Oct 1. We won’t be 100 percent with holiday, but we will have a good representation.”

At 25,000 square feet, it’s the same size at the new Lewis at 37th Street and Minnesota Avenue. The layout is similar to 69th Street and Louise Avenue, where Lewis also is next to Sanford.

Hours will be 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
