Walgreens Adds Associates At Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Center

Walgreens plans to add 150 associates at its customer contact center in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The company expects its total workforce at the center to number approximately 600.

“This expansion could not have occurred without strong leadership and support from the Alabama Department of Commerce, our State Legislature and TVA. And the most important partners are those Walgreens employees who, day in and day out, make this center successful, Forrest Wright, President of the Shoals Economic Development Authority.

“To have a known company such as Walgreens select Muscle Shoals as a growth center is a testament to the state’s and community’s ‘can do’ attitude,” he added.

The Walgreens facility in Muscle Shoals opened in October 2004 with about 30 associates.

“The Walgreens customer care center in Shoals acts as a vital connection between the company and its vast customer base across the nation, and Walgreens’ move to significantly expand the workforce at the Alabama facility is a strong vote of confidence in the operation,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.
