Illinois-based drugstore chain serves neighborhoods with fully stocked stores and modern amenities..
Founded in 1901 in Chicago by Charles R. Walgreen Sr., this neighborhood pharmacy has grown to be one of the nation's largest drugstore chains. Each store carries 25,000 different items--from cleaning products to electronics and greeting cards. Store features include a computerized system connecting pharmacies nationwide via satellite, grocery-store food aisles, one-hour photofinishing and an automated phone system for prescription refills and pre-arranged pickup times. Other services include in-store flu shots and childhood immunizations.
24/7 treasure hunt. It's great having this store open 24/7 in the neighborhood. The weekly and monthly coupon/rebate circulars are like a treasure hunt, or scavanger hunt, with an assortment of bargains. The staff are helpful. The pharmacy section can get overcrowded sometimes, but the pharmacists do their best. (There is also a dedicated Walgreens pharmacy outlet around the corner.) The retail side is always good, and even when there is a line it moves efficiently. Also the "$1 Store" section has some surprisingly good things.
