When Express Scripts announced their expansion of a new facility in North St Louis County, it was good news that is long overdue.
The new facility at North Park off I-70 will create nearly 300 jobs as it processes over 100 thousand prescriptions a day.
Bucks County, Pennsylvania had made a strong push for the expansion ,but in the end the company that started here in 1986 decided to expand here.
There is a price: a 50% tax abatement for ten years.
The hope here among politicans is that having a company ranked 115th on the Fortune 500 stay here and expand here can maybe attract other large employers to at least take a long look at this area.
