Walgens nationwide $3 billion expansion is set to begin in 2018 with the launch of a new printing plant in Atlanta.
The company said the new facility will be the largest indoor printing facility in the U.S. and will feature a total of 800,000 square feet of print capacity.
The new facility is expected to generate $3 million in annual sales for the company, according to a company release.
“We are excited to open this new print center in Atlanta and to join the growing digital community of Walgarts customers and suppliers,” Walgreen CEO Bill Simon said in a statement.
Walgrees new facility at 6th and C Street will be located in a former steel mill building at 611 S. Walgains old facility at the site has been vacant since 2010, according the company. “
With a new, state-of-the-art printing facility, we will continue to create more great products for our customers and our suppliers in the coming years.”

It was also closed to the public for years.
The facility will produce up to 1,000 shirts per day, the company said.
Walgreen’s Atlanta facility is the first in the state of Georgia.
The state’s largest pharmacy chain, Walgessons, recently opened a printing facility at its Atlanta location.
It’s one of the largest in the nation.
A majority of the Walgies current printing facility is in Texas.
