It's rare that we see a story about an influx of jobs coming INTO the state of Illinois. 

WGN - Walgreens says it’s opening a new office in Chicago and staffing it with 1,800 people.

The office will be located in the Old Post Office Building and will occupy more than 200,000 square feet.

Walgreen's headquarters are currently located in the suburb of Deerfield and still will employ more than 3,000 workers.

It's nice to see an Illinois based company keep their business within the borders. If you or someone you know would like to apply for a job at Walgreen's head over to their official job site.
