Pharmacy giant Walgreens announced earlier this year it intends to slow the pace of new store growth over the next three years, but that hasn’t stopped the Deerfield, Ill.-based business from expanding in the Charleston area.

The nation’s largest drugstore, with $53.8 billion in sales in fiscal 2007 and more than 7,000 locations, plans to build four new stores in Charleston and Berkeley counties over the next few years.

One area poised for massive growth in Berkeley County just west of Goose Creek will see a Walgreens added to a new shopping center called The Market at Carnes Crossroads.

The free-standing, 15,000-square-foot drugstore will be at Second Avenue and U.S. Highway 17A near a new 49,000-square-foot Harris Teeter supermarket and 6,220-square-foot National Bank of South Carolina, said Alex Kelly, vice president of Lincoln Harris development company in Charlotte.
