The Madison Walgreens could be open by January.

Walgreens spokesman Robert Elfinger said the drugstore chain hopes to open its Madison location later in 2012, and no exact opening date has been set yet.

Certain aspects of the project still need borough approval. On Tuesday, the Madison Planning Board is scheduled to review an application for signage at the site, 122 Main Street.

When construction on the two-story office-retail building, called Gateway to Madison, started in March, a sign at the site said the 10,253-square-foot store would be opening in September. The company did not say what affected the opening timeline. A construction accident temporarily stopped work in May.

A message was left for developer Rocco Iossa Jr.

Plans call for retail tenants on the first floor and office tenants on the second floor.

"We look forward to serving Madison residents," Elfinger said.

Walgreens had nearly 8,000 drugstores in the U.S., 177 in New Jersey, as of July 31, according to its website.
