After years of speculation and months of construction, Walgreens quietly opened its new store at 7th & Hope this afternoon. The 16,500 square foot space is the pharmacy chain's first Downtown.

Those hoping that the new competition would provide some lessons for Rite-Aid won't get much comfort from the new store's hours. Walgreens' hours almost exactly mirror those of the Rite Aid across the street, with the store open 7am to 10pm Monday through Friday, 7am to 8pm on Saturday and 8am to 8pm on Sunday.

Regular hours will get underway Friday morning, and an official grand opening will take place in June.
