Two Downstate Walgreens Stores Change Hands

The Boulder Group completed the sale of two single-tenant net leased Walgreens properties in western Illinois for more than  $8.1 million.

The 15,554-square-foot Walgreens in Galesburg, IL benefits from its hard corner location along Highway 150, a primary north-south thoroughfare. In Jacksonville, the 15,051-square-foot store is ona primary east-west thoroughfare, West Morton Avenue.

Randy Blankstein and Jimmy Goodman of the Boulder Group represented the seller, a Texas-based real estate company. The undisclosed buyer was a Midwest-based real estate investor.

“Walgreens properties with proven operating histories continue to garner significant investor interest,” said Blankstein, president of the Boulder Group.

Goodman, partner with the firm, added, “Properties with strong real estate fundamentals continue to be in demand with all investor classes.”
