DURANT, OK--- Several city leaders in Durant celebrated the grand opening of a new pharmacy today, just in time for the holidays. They say it's just another example of city's growing economy.

 It was a day of celebration for city leaders and local shoppers as a CVS store officially opened its doors.

"The community is growing, and having investments like the CVS pharmacy, creating jobs, it's exciting," said Tommy Kramer, Executive Director for Durant Industrial.

Kramer says the new store is expected to bring in more than a dozen news jobs to the area.

"It will create 15 to 18 jobs and you know we're all about jobs to improve the quality of life and enhance our community," said Kramer.

With the holidays just around the corner, shoppers say it gives them another option to do a little Christmas shopping this year.

"I'I'm glad, it's always nice to have a new store," said Shopper Dana Townsend.

The store is located off a busy intersection in the 1200 block of West Main Street in Durant. 

"I think it's a great opportunity for Durant people to have a big store like this to come and get their pharmacy needs as well as other needs," said shopper Sherry Hudson.     

With the store located off a major intersection, Mayor Jerry Tomlinson says it will attract people from surrounding areas.

"Not only provides those services and products to our citizens but it attracts some of the surrounding communities and more rural communities to our area," said Tomlinson.

Store managers say they're excited for growth and look forward to serving the community. City leaders encourage people to shop in town to help keep the community growing.
