The new Walgreens is open in the Olympia Building in Five Points.

An official grand-opening and ribbon cutting for the new Walgreens pharmacy inside the restored Olympia Building in Downtown was held Friday, Sept. 16. Completed in 1936, the building is probably best known for having the giant, circular Coca-Cola sign on its roof. The exterior of the building and signage for Walgreens has a vintage look and feel in keeping with its history.

Walgreens Team members, Atlanta Councilman Kwanza Hall and Central Atlanta Progress President A.J. Robinson celebrate the grand opening of Walgreens in Downtown’s historic Olympia Building.
