Walgreen’s reopens after being damaged by EF5 twister

MOORE, Okla.–Saturday marks two months since an EF5 tornado tore through Newcastle and Moore.

Although there’s a long road ahead, the recovery process is in full force.

Homes and businesses are in the process of getting repaired and a few stores are even back up and running.

The Walgreen’s on 19th and Santa Fe opened its doors Friday.

It suffered major damage from the storm and it’s one of the first local businesses to complete repairs and reopen.

Friday’s reopening will feature a ribbon-cutting ceremony and recognition for local heroes.

There will also be door prizes and a bounce house for the kids.

‘The Walgreen’s Way to Well Health Tour’ is also providing free health tests, which are valued at over $100.

Those tests track total cholesterol, blood pressure and body weight.

You must be at least 18-years-old for the tests and they take about 20 minutes.

Anyone who attends the ceremony will get a 15 percent discount on any purchases inside the store.

The ceremony began at 10 a.m. and will last until 2 p.m.
