After being shuttered for more than two years, a former Minyard Food Store at a shopping center on the north side of Interstate 20 and Green Oaks Boulevard in Arlington has been cleared away to make room for a Walgreens drugstore.

Tri-Logic Capital in Dallas owns the 5 acres at 4400 SW Green Oaks Blvd., where Walgreens will have a ground lease.

Minyard had operated there for more than 20 years.

Arch Pardue, owner of Tri-Logic, said he anticipates two additional retailers leasing the land that Walgreens is not taking up.

According to public filings on the project, the Walgreens should be completed by March. The estimated cost of construction is $1.8 million.
