NEW ARBOR DRUG STORE BOOSTS ECORSE'S RECOVERY

 NEW ARBOR DRUG STORE BOOSTS ECORSE'S RECOVERY
 ECORSE, Mich., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- A new Arbor Drug store,


located in the heart of Ecorse, proves that there are significant business opportunities in mature urban communities for prominent retailers, Wayne County Executive Edward H. McNamara said today at the store's grand opening.
 McNamara was joined by Arbor Drugs Chairman, CEO and founder Eugene Applebaum, Ecorse Mayor James Tassis and several Ecorse community and civic leaders.
 "In an era where we are seeing far too many retailers and businesses moving away from urban areas, it is very reassuring to see the vision and commitment of Arbor Drugs," McNamara said. "I commend Eugene Applebaum and his management team for placing a new store in Ecorse."
 Applebaum said Arbor is enthused about the new Ecorse store, its 13th location in the Downriver area. "We are pleased to be a catalyst in the revitalization of Ecorse, a community where our health-care and convenience-oriented format will be very successful."
 The new Arbor Drugs, at 3855 W. Jefferson next to Ecorse City Hall, is the first new major retail outlet to open in the city in more than 20 years. Its opening culminates a series of highlights for Ecorse since the city emerged from receivership in November 1990.
 "All of our residents are extremely proud today," said Mayor Tassis. "We are delighted to welcome the arrival of Arbor Drugs. This new store will provide jobs and quality goods and services to our community."
