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.
Greedily Expensive. One mistake is acceptable, but two is not. I went to pick up my $18.00 prescription and they charged me $75.00. They fixed the error. They had given me two bottles of a smaller amount rather than my one large bottle. Even so, wouldn't that have cost $36? Just bad business. The next trip wasn't much better. For a new prescription I was having filled they asked for $150.00 with insurance. This same prescription costs only $55.00 at other pharmacies. Go to Costco or KMart.
