There is a lot going on in Edmonton with several businesses in various stages of completion.
The lot in front of the Dollar General Market has had a lot of heavy equipment working lately. The rumor in town is that a drive-thru Walgreen’s Pharmacy will be located there; however, the local Walgreen’s staff have not been notified. As of press time, our attempts to contact Walgreen’s Corporate Office have been unsuccessful. Photo by PJ Martin

Recently opened on Highway 68 just outside of Edmonton is the Flying Horse truck stop. The location has freshly prepared food, gas, and diesel pumps, and has ample space for large semi-trucks to maneuver and fill up. Photo by PJ Martin
