Stirling to develop Walgreens in Gulfport, Miss.

Covington, La. -- Stirling Properties has announced it will develop a new full-service Walgreens drugstore in Gulfport, Miss.  

The proposed Walgreens will be located on a former Gulfmart Shopping Center site. Stirling Properties is providing development services, including lease negotiation, financing, and project management, to a third party owner of the property.
