Walgreens History

Walgreens was founded in 1901 by Chicagoan Charles R. Walgreen, Sr.  By 1913, the business had grown to 4 Chicago locations.  By 1919, there were 20 stores. The chain grew rapidly in the 1920s and there were 397 stores in 87 cities by 1930.  This rapid growth has been, in part, attributed to Walgreens selling bootleg liquor during Prohibition. In 1939, Charles R. Walgreen, Sr. died and his son, Charles Jr. took over the company.  Jr. retired in the early 1950s and his son, Cork, took over the company. In 1986, the company acquired MediMart. In recent years, the company has gone through CEOs in rapid succession with 4 different CEOs since 2006. The chain currently operates over 8300 locations in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.  The Walgreens Corporate Office is located just outside Chicago in Deerfield, Illinois.

I was checking out with a cashier {I think her name was Abby}. Another associate {older man} was giving her change for her drawer and taking money out of her drawer. I said, “I am getting ready to pay with a $100 dollar bill.” My total was about $32. The older man said, “I will take that” and took the $100 bill from my hand and walked away. The cashier proceeded with the transaction and gave me the receipt and change. As I was walking to the door, the older man said, “Maam, your $100″. He had 5 / $20′s in his hand. I said, “I already received my change from the cashier.” He said, “Maam, this is change from your $100″ and tried to hand it to me. I said, “No, she already gave me my change”. He said, “This is your money.” and attempted to hand it to me again. The cashier was also trying to tell him. I said, “She gave me the change.” He said, “impossible.” I said, “My bill was $32 and she gave me $68 back.” He said, “From where.” I said, “From her drawer.” Abby was also trying to tell him. Very extreme: He said, “WHO RUNS THIS STORE”. He said, “If that is the case, show me the $100 in your drawer.” I said, “You took the $100. You need to give her the 5/$20′s.” He stopped, thought a minute, and was berating Abbey. “Don’t you ever do that again!!! That will be cause for termination!” I left as he continued to berate this young girl while other customers were in the store. I’m not sure what was going on with this man, but, the cashier knew exactly what she was doing and he did not. His actions were VERY UNPROFESSIONAL! The cashier, Abby, was very nice and helpful. Maybe, you should look to Abby as your management at this location. I could have very easily walked out the door with the extra $100.

My comment is in “moderation”. They probably won’t print it but that’s ok, I took a screen shot. I don’t plan on letting this go. I’ve been treated like I’m nothing by their staff long enough. It’s time for action to be taken. And I forgot the best news of it all…my husband is a lawyer and we’ve accumulated enough evidence to go after them. If they want to treat a chronically ill person with an incurable disease with such contempt, they should be prepared to reap the consequences.


Clark November 22, 2015 at 12:21 am

I have never had worse experience in my life than when I deal with Walgreens. They are all the same. The floater pharmacist are condescending, rude and downright judgemental. Always blame “corporate policies” when they are the ones that can fill rx’s as needed. As someone that’s been stupid enough to be a patient for 10 years with them, it ends today. They are more expensive than other pharmacies, and if you look it GoodRx, you can see the different in pricing. Look at all these complaints, look on the Web and you’ll see, they have the most, but nothing gets done to improve their negativity. The letters I plan writing, since I have documentation plus video recording of my encounters, will be posted everywhere. I have a good friend who does local news, I plan on meeting up with him about a story. It time they know, we are people who can’t be messed with. Done with them.

After reading a few of these comments it seems my problem with Walgreens in Carson City, Nv is the same everywhere else! Called all morning long, was on hold for 32 minutes until I hung up. Got in my car and came through the drive through only to wait another 10 minutes. Only to be told your prescription for your dog is being processed can you come back? Are you kidding me!! No choice, came back only to wait another 25 minutes. Ridiculous!!! Called the store manager from my car while waiting in line. He said, “we are sorry but I only have one technition back there.” Maybe they should have a few more…. Just saying!! This organization is ridiculous! If my insurance didn’t dictate were I would have to go I would definitely choose elsewhere!

Pharmacist, Hana Choi

EL MONTE, CA 91732


This pharmacist interjected herself without my asking for her advice, counseling or her Anti Russian Language Opinion. Last year like now there is a major flare-up of parasites due to the large number of homeless people in this area causing an infestation on public transportation.

The doctor prescribed Permethrin Cream not a fluid this tube was manufactured by Actavis and when opened, nearly half of the contents spewed out under pressure like a missile made of milk splashing onto the carpet. The clerk was trying to do her job and said, “We have had a large number of complaints regarding this so we had to back order the Permethrin Cream in the blue tube from Perrigo, but it will not be here until Monday or Tuesday.” She was calling other Walgreens trying to find the product for me, I appreciate her effort.

I mentioned to the clerk that I was glad to deal with my regular doctor because he speaks fluent English that last year as in 2014, I had a rough time understanding a female doctor who is from Romania and had to speak with her in Russian. Hearing this the Pharmacist, Hana Choi immediately came rushing over and interjected that she was not going to fill the prescription!

She declared that I was not using it correctly so I replied if you are referring to nearly half of the contents squirting out under pressure and splashing onto the carpet as not being used correctly then you may want to issue a cream, not a liquid, because the doctor prescribed a cream not a liquid milk colored missile.

I told her there is not enough of the product to do any good. That I did not come over and try to get them to issue anything that their robot had been calling my cell phone since yesterday! Hanna Choi said, “I know it is in the computer and the doctor gave you two refills.” I asked why she was interjecting and refusing to refill the order that they had been asking me to pickup for two days?” I was polite when I asked her the question.

She glared at me and would not give a reason and stated, “I will not fill the order for you unless the doctor makes me!” The feeling that comes to mind here are a few things: 1. Hanna Choi may own stock in Actavis. 2. May hate people who speak Russia even though I am part Asian, English and Cherokee and around here I should learn Spanish and/or Mandarin.

I did call the manager and had a long talk with him over her actions and he said he will have his manager call me on Monday. I know that Corporate will not say or do much if anything with my complaint if it only comes from me, and it should be noted that I have been doing business with Walgreens most of life and I am 55 and until now I have never had a reason to make a complaint but I am in this case.

I will also have my attorney inform Walgreens Corporate Office regarding Ms. Hanna Choi because that will have their attention and she can explain her actions to them.

Walgreens pharmacy at 3201 N. Broadway – on hold for 25 minutes and no answer – call to call back and demand that I talk with someone only to find out the order that was called in my my mother’s nurse was sitting there – unfilled – I told them to fill it and get it delivered. No delivery – I call yet again and was told the meds are out of stock – how is is that orders for medications for my mother just sit there and no one makes a call to me – and I have to call from my workplace and be left on hold and still no one will pick up the phone. Walgreens has gotten so big that they simply could care less about their customers or patients that depend on getting medicine in a timely fashion. UNBELIEVEABLE. All these fancy phone systems that keep give you blah blah blah crap information vs. letting you talk to a real person are of NO HELP ESPECIALLY TO SENIORS or people who have to really work for a living.

We arrived at the Texas City location at approximately 11:00 pm, after visiting the UTMB Urgent Care in League City, with my 2 year old grandson, who was having asthma. The pharmacist, told my daughter, that she would have to come back in the morning, because he had too many prescriptions to fill, even though, she was the only one there, at the time. This is totally unacceptable, from a 24 hour pharmacy. Really, Walgreens? We wasted an entire evening getting my asthmatic grandson to the doctor, without being able to receive the necessary medicine he needed. Since this is the only 24 hour pharmacy, in the area, Walgreens should hire more night staff, if this is the problem. What has happened to America?!

I went to Walgreeens and had coupons on my phone. I had bonus walgreens point coupon as well. I went to the counter to check out and none of my coupons were recognized. The girl that helped me at the counter was very nice and we used the paper coupons. All was good there, I asked her about the bonus point coupon and she told me I would have to talk to the manager ERIC GODSILL. I told her that would be fine and I didn’t want to hold her line up and she told me to meet him in the photo area. I went over there and got out my receipt and had my phone with the coupon. I started to ask him about this and he cut me off and said that the store had nothing to do with the app on my phone and to call a different number about the app. He has treated me rude before and I have seen him treat other customers as well as employees rude also. I was mad because he couldn’t even take about 1 minute to at least look at it and then tell me he couldn’t help. I felt like he was just blowing me off as he always does. i just wanted to have him look at my receipt. I told him he was an ass and walked out of the store but not before stopping at the cashier and with all the customers waiting to be checked out to let her know that he was the worse manager I have ever seen. When I got home, my blood pressure was 150/100 and my husband call the store and talked to ERIC GODSILL, ERIC was trying to cover his but and say that I wouldn’t let him get a word in, which is not the case. My husband told him we have been married over 30 years and has never seen me that upset before. He got shitty with my husband and my husband gave it right back to him. He is a young kid with long hair and is just cocky flipping it around all the time like he is GOD. I will never go back to the Walgreens in Lawrenceburg Indiana again unless they make it right with me. Between me and my husband we are in there at least a few times a week, have all our prescriptions there, I shop there and spend thousands of dollars there every year. NO MORE until a new manager is there. I love the pharmacy and all the staff but him, we are in there so much they know us by name. He hasn’t been there all that long and I hope not much longer or some other pharmacy/store will get my money.

the walgreens in mesquite tx near horn high school is the worse manged store in the states


April October 11, 2015 at 11:11 am

I applied for a job at Walgreen in nashville tennessee and went through all the interviews was told I had the job and never got a call back…then I see a sign up that they r hiring,all they want in their store are teens that don’t stay long and that they can pay minimum wage to..they don’t want people that will work and stay and grow with the company..all my experience and they would rather have kids working there..buttheads fine because that store will not last long because they can not keep people…


Kenny Rompe October 4, 2015 at 4:52 pm

Dont feel bad everyone, in Des Moines, Iowa at a store by Drake University, I just had a psycho cashier actually REACH INTO MY BACKPACK and forceably shove a receipt in my bag. In the middle of writing an email corporate is NOT going to like.

Walgreens gave me wrong medicine and what did they do with mine..no one will contact me so I will cms

I have been going to Walgreens on Rt 59 & Airmont Road for years. The Pharmacists that work there and the assistants are the most poorly trained and managed I have ever seen. You can wait for your prescriptions for up to an hour. The personnel there has a high turnover rate for reasons you can only imagine. Just recently I drove up to their window to drop off and met a large line. I wondered what was taking so long and saw a man who was frustrated also and got out to look at a man simply waiting with his window closed. His license plate was ‘Mr. Mets’. We watched for several minutes while there was no attendent at the window. She finally appeared with prescriptions in hand. Obviously this man was waiting for his scripts instead of a simple drop off or pick up. When he saw everyone looking at him, he was heard saying do you have the rest yet and then said I will come back when he noticed he was being watched. The man who was watching everything from outside the window got back into his car and waited for the woman in front of him. She had the same idea to wait for his scripts but had a change of mind after witnessing this so, she simple said I will come inside and wait. The man drove up to the window and nobody was attending it. Hue buzzed and buzzed for a couple of minutes until the same female Walgreen’s attendant came back. He asked her if the man was simply picking off or waiting for the scripts and she confirmed he waited for the his scripts and he stated to her that there was a line of cars waiting and she should of advised him to either come back or inside the store since others were waiting to drop off or pick up. Since she did not apologize or give a proper reply, he asked for the manager and a irate prescriber adamantly said if he did not like the service, he could go somewhere else. She said something like this is not McDonalds and you can go somewhere else to get your fries! I was appaled at this woman’s behavior and how she would hold down any position. The man stormed off apparently shocked at this woman’s tirade. I left and will NEVER go back to Walgreen’s.


Robert Bender September 20, 2015 at 6:10 am

I made the mistake of going to the closer store and once again, they have failed me. I blame myself for STILL going to this mismanaged store. I clipped a coupon for olives on website and double checked my action so I would NOT have a problem. I get to register, put in my phone number and had my reward card scanned like you should and NO coupon was given to me. The sales person had to scan an ad for me to continue. Does anyone see that this store needs NEW management? My neighbor had same thing happen to him this week. I want NO gift card or even an apology as they are worthless in THIS store. How can this store be so bad and the other a few miles down US1 be so good? The answer is MANAGEMENT! I will bring this up at Spanish Lakes homeowners meeting coming up. I’m asking everyone to BOYCOTT this store completely! This is the LAST time I will ever email you about this horrible store. I am NOT alone in this. People just do not inform you of what goes on in this particular store. I only wish, I could convince you of this. Try being a secret shopper there and see for yourself.

Before i saw this , I sat down and wrote to the corporate offices .

My Question now after reading all these comments is . . . . . . .



CARLA O. September 8, 2015 at 7:23 pm

Walgreens is the most pathetic pharmacy ever they never get your order right they never have anything ready they forget to give you your prescriptions and the people are so rude and inconsiderate very unprofessional. I have never encountered a pharmacy so slow and unprofessional as Walgreens on Copley Road in Akron Ohio I will transfer my prescriptions never go there again everyone that goes there complains they are so rude. They are so understaffed it is pathetic. They are constantly contacting the wrong doctor for my refills!!!!


Barb Dobrow September 4, 2015 at 1:16 pm

I have always liked shopping at Walgreens. I always stop at the one in Franklin Park on Grand Ave. in Illinois. As I walk through the store picking up the things I need I see something you might have on sale and I pick it up.

When I get to the register there is so screen to show me what I have purchased or what the price is. I don’t know until I receive the receipt what I was charged for. I have never not been able to see the merchandise being rung up. To me this is a totally illegal and fraudulent practice.

When I get to my car and look over the receipt, the merchandise that I thought was on sale by your sale tags, these items are not the ones on sale. I ALWAYS wind up having to go back in the store to return these items. I am not shopping at your store anymore. I went back to the shelf and you are the only retail store that has your sale tags above your sale merchandise, not below it like everyone else. Everybody who thinks the merchandise is on sale is actually paying full price for the items. You don’t know it until you have already paid for it as to what you were charged.

I am going to get in touch with the networks and see if they could do an investigation about this scam that you are running. I am also going to check with the county and the state and see if this is a legal practice of yours. If this is constantly happening to me, it is happening to everyone. I also want how you have the printing on your ads and sale tags investigated.

Have a good day!

I called in 2 refill prescriptions on 8/24/15. I got confirmation that noted they were shipped on 8/25/15 with an expected delivery date of 9/1/15. They never arrived. First I tried to send an email to customerservice@mail2walgreens.com that was listed on the “We shipped your order” email. It kicked back as undeliverable. Next I called the toll free customer service number. I spoke to Lindsay. She told me that the package had been forwarded to another address and that I should contact the USPS to find out what happened to it.
So this morning (9/4/15) I tried again. I spoke to Karen. I explained what I was told the previous day. ((Now day 4 without my medications)). She told me to contact the USPS.
I told her that I made a transaction with Walgreens . I paid for the prescriptions, my health insurance had been billed. It’s not my fault that the delivery service that Walgreens uses screwed up. Karen told me that I’m wrong, not Walgreens. She said she would put me on hold and contact USPS to find out what happened. After another ten minutes on hold someone from USPS came on the phone and said that they do not have the package. Karen (Walgreens customer service) did not stay on the line. She dumped my call off to the USPS which could not do anything to assist me. Finally, I called back and spoke to Alea she was very helpful compared to my previous contacts. She said she would try to get me a small supply from a local Walgreens store until the shipment could be located and gave me a reference number We’ll see if anything gets resolved. Based on the events of the past few days, I don’t really expect a lot. But I’m hopeful. I just needed to document what has transpired in case anything happens to me as a result of not taking these medications.


Gail Bradley August 31, 2015 at 4:18 pm

I was visiting your website, searching for your corporate Organizational Chart and could not locate it. I need it for a final project I am working on with three other students at Robert Morris University, Chicago IL. We would also like to submit an on – line questionnaire for one of your HR professional to complete if possible. If you e-mail me then I could e-mail the questionnaire back to you.


Gena Dougherty August 28, 2015 at 4:57 pm

Dear Walgreens,, I am a 53 year old, disabled woman w/ a clean record, intelligence and honesty. Now I know that you can’t just take my word for it, but,, I have been filling the same prescriptions from the Dr., through the same pharmacy for a long while now and never before had a problem,,, until today. Every time,, and this is an important point, every time I needed to know if there was enough,, ” 90, 10mg. tablets of methadone. ” to fill my prescription. I have been made aware of your policy to not give out that information. When I would call and ask for someone in the pharmacy, instead of asking someone in the care center,, ( and let me just stop n say, it bothers me when I think I’m be put through to the actual pharmacy, and I’m not. It makes one feel as if I’ve been tricked w/ what can be construed as an attempt to screen calls. ) ANYWAY,, As long as I asked for someone in the pharmacy,, the person on the other end would tell me. Again ,, that it was every time, be it boy, girl, man, woman,, whatever. Then,, today,, I get stonewalled. They kept saying who was it I had been speaking to,, as if I tell them, boy is that person in trouble. Now keep in mind, occasionally, I would get attitude from the first person because I didn’t want to discuss my issue w/ them,, Well I don’t, and I’ve had other inquiries before as well,, only to be told that, “I would have to ask someone in the pharmacy. I don’ don’t want to have to tell my personal information to a go between call screener,, only to have to explain it all over again, OR,, if they made it an issue, or if there was some supervisor there or something . Or maybe they hired all new staff and there wasn’t anybody there who was familiar w/ me or my history. Or maybe they ALL suddenly got cross your t’s and dot your i’s perfect,, as i was informed that she herself “Never” had personally and didn’t know of anyone else who had,, and she’d been there for over two years. Again.. every time, before. As I said earlier,, I am aware of your policy,, and the fact that ,, for me personally,, to just hop in a car and drive down there every day to find out,, IS a hardship,,, is not your problem. My advanced pain medication specialist prescribes it for me for pain because the morphine’s side effects,, for me were too much. I have NO background of criminal behavior,,, NONE.. So if someone there at the Walgreens Pharmacy on the northeast corner of 35th Ave. and Northern,, Can’t get thier nose back into joint. then I will take my business elsewhare. In fact I’ll do myself a favor, and not hold my breath. Gena Dougherty, 08/11/1962. My address and phone number are matters of your records,, if you wish to contact me. Please do not use it for any other reason, or sell it. Thank You


Ana Arias August 26, 2015 at 3:36 pm

I visited the store at coral Gate in Coral way and SW 35th Ave. I left two prescriptions they call me they were ready for pick up. I am 79 years old and I have a back surgery I am recovering from. They gave me one of my prescriptions and they told me that the inhaler was pick up on the 23rd by someone, I asked to speak to the manager and they told me that the manager will not be in the store until 6:00PM. I called the phone and asked for the status of the medication and it said it was waiting to be picked up. I called the store and asked to speak to the manager. A person answered me in Spanish saying she was the manager. She put me on hold to pick up my call from the pharmacy. She did and asked my name she look at my archive records and she said hold and never answered back. The called was hang up and I called three times more to asked for the manager and they hanged the call on me. This is negligence on their part to treat customers that way. I sounded upset but I was treating everybody in a proper way.
Your help in this matter is appreciated!


mc August 24, 2015 at 4:28 pm

I was desperate to go to a pharmacy that opened before 9 am – so forced to go to walgreens. Again they did not disappoint me with their usual poor customer service, lack of caring, and treating customers as they are a slight annoyance. The tone of the person behind the counter couldn’t be more robotic or uninterested. Why do they have these jobs if they obviously hate people and or hate what they do??? I was filling a prescription for a 5 year old and asked if a flavor could be added. To which this incredibly ‘unwilling to help’ person said she would let me know after she pulls the order since it’s determined by the manufacturer. I asked if the flavor tasted any good, to which she replied in a serious albeit snotty tone that ‘no one here has tasted a child’s medication’. I looked at her stunned thinking you are just ridiculous. I was under the impression that a pharmacy was a place to go for advice, and I was looking for advice on the taste of a child’s medication to see if it was tolerable and to see if maybe anyone there (3 people behind the counter at the time) had heard anything at all from other parents on their success. Nothing – blank stare. Annoyed disgust looking at me across the counter. I had recently asked the pharmacist at rite aid a similar question and he came back with several positive/helpful comments, ideas, and feedback. I will continue to avoid walgreens pharmacy at all cost!

Do you really like customers???


Alexis Cox August 20, 2015 at 7:44 am

One more thing this employee obviously knew what the procedure was and that they would count the till and of course the till would come out right discrediting the customer because she has done this before. After just getting out of the hospital this was the last thing I needed I just wanted to go home. Walgreens do you really think I would go through all of this over $15.00 give me a break. That’s ridiculous I had not ever driven away from the window yet. So be it! Your the ones who will loose business because like I said I manage a huge apartment complex just blocks from your store and know a lot of people and word of mouth is a powerful thing.


Alexis Cox August 20, 2015 at 7:06 am

Day before yesterday I sliced my arm wide open and just got out of the hospital I go through the drive window to pick up my prescription, the prescription is $2.60 I give the girl a $20 bill when I open the envelope there is $ 2.40 I immediately push the call buttom she comes back to the window I tell her she still owes me $15.00 she gets her manager and tells him she cant remember what she give me(odd she just did the transaction) so he counts the till and says it came out on the money, so its obvious there employee has pocketed the money but they quickly dismiss that there employee did not take it. needless to say I am very angered by this time because there saying that must of made a mistake. wrong! This manager Cory at the Olympia WA walgreens is standing there with this smile on his face as if I was some kind of criminal and trying to pull some kind of quick one on them. wrong again! so I told them to keep there $2.40 and give it to the female that did this because I am not excepting this as my change. so I paid $20.00 for a $2.60 prescription because they refused to question the employee cause there so sure that she did not pocket the money cause there till was right on. You cant tell me they have never caught an employee steeling from them before. Word of mouth is a very powerful thing and they better be watching that employee very close because sooner or later she will do it again and by this time its to late because I will be telling my story to everyone I know and I know a lot of people in Olympia I grew up here they will have hurt there business by a lot because they treat there customers like criminals. I will never give them my business again.


Stacy Bill August 19, 2015 at 12:15 pm

Stacy Bill- lindenwold new jersey


Jane August 11, 2015 at 4:05 pm

I went in to walgreens in Deltona, FL yesterday. My uncle was in an accident and I will be flying to New Jersey in two days to be there for him. When I explained the situation to the pharmacist (to make sure I have enough meds to take with me when I go) he asked what insurance I had. I said Medicaid. He followed with “people with Medicaid shouldn’t be going on vacation”. I said excuse me, to make sure I heard correct. He repeated “people with Medicaid don’t take vacations, I don’t know what to tell you”. I had a panic attack before I made it to my car. With my two year old daughter with me. So disrespectful.


Tee August 28, 2015 at 10:30 am

Omg, that is awful. I no longer shop at Walgreens due to their lack of concern for their customers. Please post this on social media so it can go viral.


Rich July 31, 2015 at 2:07 pm

I have given my business to Walgreens for DECADES. I even shop for groceries there in spite of the fact that they’re much LESS EXPENSIVE at Publix, or grocery stores. I walked into Walgreens yesterday with a script my dentist gave me for pain and the half witted female (KIMBERLY ANDERSON) who got her claws on my prescription actually THREW IT IN THE TRASH as if I were some criminal seeking 30 of your precious pain meds.

If she had GOTTEN OFF HER ASS and simply talked to me she would have learned that my meds changed and I no longer was taking the medication that led her to trash my script.
WORSE STILL, this female, with the personality of a toad, called my doctor and pissed in his ear about how I shouldn’t have painkillers after surgery.

Now, as a result of KIMBERLY ANDERSON’S ineptitude I have to drive 50 miles to see yet another doctor to complete my procedure, OR I can spend my recovery in intense pain. This imbecile wasted hours of my time and effort, which could have been avoided if she had simply spoken to me.

You can’t have pharmacists with the personality and IQ of a toad AND expect to have happy customers. You SIMPLY DO NOT throw away a persons pain prescription when they’re about to have surgery before you even say a word to them! WRONG WRONG WRONG.

I see by the amount of complaints you have that you must have many KIMBERLY ANDERSONS working for you. I will NEVER spend a penny in a Walgreens again unless I know you’re losing money on the sale.

Congratulations KIMBERLY ANDERSON, you turned a happy and loyal customer into ANOTHER person who HATES WALGREENS!!

After a day spent in the ER with my spouse, I had to fill some prescriptions. While I was waiting in the walk in clinic area near the prescription counter, I saw a woman come and grab one of the chairs in the waiting room explaining that her mother needed to sit down. After several minutes the lady who took the chair gets within view and she sets the chair down and behind her is an extremely elderly lady who is using a walker and has to sit every few steps to rest up to go a few steps further. I asked the pharmacy people where the courtesy wheelchair is and they say they don’t have any. I was stupefied as to why this pharmacy located just outside of a huge retirement community wouldn’t have courtesy wheelchairs. When the medical person on duty came out I stated to her that there should be courtesy wheelchairs made available for their customers and her condescending response to me was “this is a walk in clinic” . I was flabbergasted to say the least. I then talked with the manager of the store and was told by her that “there is no place to plug a wheelchair in”. I said it doesn’t have to plug in, just something for their customers to be able to sit in and be scooted across the store in, that is pushed by who they are there with. The manager informed me her hands are tied by corporate and that I should contact corporate to be heard. In closing I would like to say that directly across the street from Walgreens is a CVS Pharmacy that DOES provide a cart which offers people who are having mobility problems a way of getting around in their store. Six months from this day, July 28, 2015 if there is not a courtesy cart in the Walgreens store for those with mobility problems, I will transfer my business to CVS Pharmacy.

I am trying to email someone about a serious compaint and I’m getting frustrated because I can’t find any actual email address for Walgreen’s

After reading so many complaints I’ll only be shopping at Walgreens when no other drugstore is available, so you may guess when that’ll be.
Even though I have only shopped at Walgreens a few times, for some reason during those times the experience has been neither friendly or unfriendly, something like purchasing something from an outfit having all the charm and personality of a vending machine.
I must say that I’m shocked at so many negative comments, if it had been one or two, I would have dismissed them as being from chronically malcontents, but look!
It appears to me that there is something seriously wrong, and it also seems that nobody at Walgreens Corporate Headquarters in Illinois is looking at these comments.

I have been using wallgreens for a long time over 30 years .and now im looking to change I am so feed up, every time I have to go to the store to pick up my meds and my foster childrens meds I have to tell them to please read the computer and then they say oh yea I see it , along with my medicine I have to keep telling them I have a crestor card for money off , the funny thing is they gave this to me.

Went to Virginia Beach to visit with my son – stayed longer than planned – had to refill my medication. I went to Walgreens on Virginia Beach & Independence Blvd. – was in shocked at the price they charged me – I live in North Carolina get my prescription for $29.99 (not at Walgreens) – they charged me $51.00 for the same thyroid pill that I take. I am 70 years old and speak for senior citizens – this is why some senior citizens can’t afford their medications. This is a terrible mark-up – I will never go to Walgreens again for Meds.


Judged Patient July 10, 2015 at 2:01 pm

I have been dealing at the same Walgreens in Clermont, FL for 12 years since we moved here. During the last couple of years I have had problems off and on getting my pain medications filled. It was always some ludicrous refusal to fill them but they eventually did fill them. I have a morphine pump for nerve damage in my spine and up until October, the pump plus a moderate prescription for oral meds for breakthrough pain kept me very comfortable. But then the pump broke and when they went to replace it found my catheter was blocked. I had to immediately be placed on oral medication to replace the pump action. After 3 months of working with my doctor on trying different meds and different doses/intervals, etc., we finally found that 100 mg. of ER morphine every 8 hours, combined with 8 mg. of dilaudid as needed, was the right combination to keep me reasonably comfortabale. If you know about pumps versus oral meds, and you’d think a licensed pharmacist would be informed, that the percentage of switching is 300 to 1. In other words it takes 300 times the amount of oral medication to achieve what 1 amount would provide through the pump. My pharmacist at Walgreens (who isn’t exactly warm and fuzzy to start with) apparently didn’t like the amount of medication I was being prescribed, despite the fact that she isn’t a doctor and knows nothing about pain pumps or the cross over amounts with oral meds. I guess she made it her mission at this point to stop giving me my medications. Every month when I went in, despite having a legal prescription, from a reputable doctor, not pharmacy shopping, not doctor shopping, etc., I would leave Walgreens in tears. They treated me like a sub-human or drug dealer. J knew I wasn’t the only one, because I happened to be in the store another day when a man went off on her for treating him the same way. I finally asked if I could speak to her to try to resolve this situation. She suggested that I prepare a chart of when my appointments took place, the medication prescribed, the dose, the interval, etc.and provide it to her for her records. I went one step further and had my doctor sign the form. I thought it was all good now, but just two months later I went in to pick up my monthly prescriptions and I was met with a very unfriendly, rude pharmacist, who said quite loudly in the open store with custumers all around, ” so what’s going on with your pump; what’s going on” The grilling I got from her in open forum with other customers is clearly a HIPPA violation and I’m not sure if I’m going to pursue that yet or not. Anyway, when I tried to talk to her she didn’t want to hear it. She said finally, “This is what you’re going to do: You’re going to get a letter on your doctor’s letterhead with his signature (here we go again) outlining his treatment plan, etc., and if I don’t get that from you, I will no longer fill your prescriptions. I’m putting those notes in my computer now so that no one else here will fill them either.” I tried to tell her that my doctor wouldn’t be pleased about it as he felt her last demand was clearly a violation of my rights. She said, “Why, does he think he’s God?” Trying to be lighthearted, I said, well, don’t all doctors. She said, “No, in fact I know doctors here locally that if I called them and they were in the middle of an epidural, they’d take my call and say what do you need.” I said well, I can’t help any of what’s going on with me. Until my catheter can be fixed I have no choice and this is the medication that it takes to keep me at a comfortable level. You are putting me in the middle, what do you expect me to do. She replied, “find another doctor.” I said well even if I wanted to, it’s just not that simple. There is only 1 other doctor in a 50 mile radius that takes patients with pain pumps. As if implying she didn’t believe me, she picked up the phone and began dialing numbers. At first, I thought she was calling my doctor’s office, but when I asked, she said she was trying to reach some of the other local doctors. Clearly she was accusing me of making this information up. When I left that day, I was in tears again and swore then that I would do whatever I had to do to never return to that Walgreens or any other one for that matter. And to add insult to injury, what usually takes a couple of hours to get my prescriptions, took me until the following afternoon before I could even pick them up. Walgreen’s needs to wake up. You don’t treat people like they do and expect that they will keep giving you business. I for one have made it my mission presently to tell everyone I know to take their business elsewhere. There are hundreds of indicidually owned, private pharmacies in every town that need the business and I’m more than happy to give them mine.. Walgreens and CVS have got so much volume that they believe they can treat people as they please and nothing will ever change. It’s time to show them they’re wrong!!!


P. MARQUEZ July 23, 2015 at 3:47 pm

You are so right. I have been treated like scum. I have herniated disks due to motorcycle accident am in horrible pain they refuse to give me my med and act like they are gods. Am very upset at how they treat people!


Tee August 28, 2015 at 10:36 am

I no longer shop there due to them discontinuing their Ology line of cruelty free, plant based products. I got nothing but a run around trying to get answers as to why from corporate. Goodbye Walgreens, hello Walmart.


Jo July 7, 2015 at 9:08 pm

Shopped at 9150 Skokie Blvd., Skokie, IL today July 6, 2015 at 5:30; store was empty. Bought over the counter medicine for great grandmother. Went to cashier in front of store–old female foreign speaking. Asked if I wanted to donate for Diabetes charity. I told her not today. She took my money and told me about Senior Citizen discount. I am 32 years old and couldn’t believe it. I told her and she looked and said nothing. I was angry but Oh Well! She gave me my change back and I left. About a half hour later, I looked at my receipt and noticed she charged me $10 for this Diabetes charity. I gave her $20 bill, the item was $6.39 and she gave me the bills folded up. How stupid am I? I only got $4.00 back. If she did it to me then she probably did it to other unsuspecting customers.

I called Store Manager and he just listened. I’m sure he wasn’t the manager. I didn’t know this old woman’s name but she should not be working at a store, period, especially Walgreens, After I was finished, he just listened and hung up.

Will I shop and get my prescriptions for my parents and I there? Never, I am transferring our prescriptions elsewhere. Walgreens is expensive to begin with but convenient. But at least I get better customer service elsewhere.

Walgreens, especially this store, has gone way down in quality.

Well down to 22 hours because of an injury.The red nose campaign is honorable, but not when you create poverty .Some one needs to do something about the little Hitler (Store manager Mark) He is giving that Walgreen’s a black eye. and maybe a lawsuit. Walgreen’s is better than that.


Harold May 21, 2015 at 12:37 am

I just read through some of the comments. I have come to the conclusion that these comments don’t get reviewed. America has fallen hard. I don’t think its the stores I believe that we as Americans vote for wing-nuts that want money and power. They get that by buying a politician. I Walgreen’s in Marana Arizona Is horrid also. We have the DEA ,homeland security, County attorney,County clinics, And Congress telling the DR’s and the pharmacy what and how to do.But all of these people have a heath care system that is leaps and bonds better than ours will ever be.Allot like a monarchy. Until they(The monarchy) has to live by the rules they pass nothing will change.And as fare as Walgreen go’s DON’T GET INJURED. Walgreen has a red nose telethon to help the poor out of poverty.but you get injured Walgreen’s will help you get their faster. Sorry for the horrible move boots.


Sterling May 10, 2015 at 1:21 pm

Been a customer at the same Walgreens for a good number of years. The day before mother’s day I went in to get my allergy med and 2 mother’s day cards as well as a flower arrangement. The guy asked for drivers license. I reached in my wallet to get it for him, then remembered I left it at another store a day ago. I then gave him a none drivers license ID from the state of Mo. He declined the Id. Really? I guess if you don’t drive in Missouri you can’t have your prescriptions filled either. So, with that said what is the legal term for a proper ID?


Donna May 7, 2015 at 6:12 pm

I wrote Walgreens asking how to get a list of their sweepstakes winners to see if anybody actually won or if it existed at all. I got a response and was directed to a website that listed first initials and last names of winners. That list could have been made up so I highly doubt it even exists. But then I noticed something — When I initiated the inquiry to them I entered all my current bio information — name, address, phone, etc. But on the reply (I entered my current info) it was addressed with my name and the address of someone else!!! If they can’t get it right on a direct inquiry where I included my information, how on earth would they get it right and notify me if I ever were a true sweepstakes winner? That is if the sweepstakes truly exists? It’s all bogus. Don’t waste your time filing out those surveys & entering a sweepstakes that does not exist!!!

I recently applied for a position your store located in copperas cove texas. Shortly after filling out my application,I was contacted by the store manager even though I had not done the in store assessment. He informed me that there was a position open for immediate hire(and wanted me to come in for an interview as soon as possible. Once I arrived at the stock I briefly spoke with him. Five minutes later I was approached by an assistant manager,and informed that I would not be interview because of what I was wearing. She explained to me that he required for all potential employees to be dressed in dress suits. I find irritating and rude that I was blown off,because of the clothing I was wearing. If bus business casual is not an acceptable open it should be made clear before an interview is set up. I find it ridiculous that I was denied,yet the employee at the register,had her shirt tied In a knot to the side,and looked sloppy.

I am an employee of walgreens in sugar house Utah. I work as an sfl on the graveyard shift. I also lived studied and was highly cared for my Nepali people in Kathmandu and beyond. We as a company have many Nepali customers and patients. I believe it is our duty to support Nepal during these tragic times following the deadly earthquake. We donate to so many charities but this is one w really need to focus on. People from across the world are in Nepal suffering and helping together. Women and children need our help. The elderly need supplies, medication is in desperate need. All of these necessary supplies we have a surplus of and we should donate to these people. It is part of our core values to assist those in need. Please send help. Save Nepal. Do what is right for the people of the world. Do what is right for our souls. Stand up and be part of the change. I beg of you. Do not sit idle. If you choose not to send supplies at least send me. Our brother and sisters are dying and health care/sanitary supplies are urgently required. I cannot stress this enough. If Walgreens cares for the people of the world we must stand up now and prove it!

This is not a comment, this message for support for Earthquake Victims in Nepal, Please support for mankind….

Dear Executives,
Walgreen Co.,

It is my pleasure to let you know that I am one of the Pharmacy tech practice (Extern) student in Walgreen Pharmacy in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. The intention of writing this letter is to request support for Earthquake Victims in Nepal. I am from Nepal, and I use to work there as community pharmacist since 2003 to July 2013. It is very hard time for Nepalese and Nation. So, if Walgreen can support financial assistance to those needy people, I can lead the National pharmacy Union to rescue people and medicines support program because previously I have been Vice President and later Acting president of Nepal Pharmaceutical Association of Nepal (Info: In Nepal 45 Diploma in Pharmacy college and 15 Bachelor of Pharmacy under four University).
On the other hand I want to proof the pharmacist and pharmacy professionals are supporter of mankind not only business man.
So please support those restless people in Nepal. Thank you and appreciate lot for giving such a valuable time to read this letter.
My teams mission will be to support Nepalese people and find the US Natives and others from different country who are lost in Nepal.
Hope you will response this letter as soon as it possible because they need help urgently. And my humble request if you are not a responsible person for this letter please forward it to responsible one who can make decision soon. Thank you for your kind support.

Walgreens/DuaneReede in on my preferred pharmacy list. I went to Walgreens to fill two precription and neither of them were available in the Queens, NY pharmacy. I was unable to get my insulin for diabetes or my antibiotic for an infection on my finger.
How can a pharmacy not have an adequate suppy of medication on hand especially insulin needed for diabetes? I never had a problem getting my medications at any other pharmacy.


sarah April 16, 2015 at 7:07 pm

I will never shop at Walgreen’s again after i was searched by an emloyee. This scarred me from shopping here and left behind more than an unpleasant experience for me.

Here’s my story:

What: harassed (searched down), discriminated, targeted from the min I walked in, and profiled

Where: Walgreen’s. Midwest location

When: November 2014

Resolved : No follow ups, apologies or concerns that they have some of the most incompetent and unprofessional staff members working there.

After a very long and sick day of being in the ER, i was released with several prescriptions. So, what was next? I decided to go to the place I once loved shopping at, my local Walgreen’s. I dropped my scripts off at the pharamcy, told the technician I’d shop while I waited for the meds to be filled and started shopping. I’ll admit, I wasn’t dressed my best considering my circumstances. Minutes later after placing some cosmetic items in my cart, I was approached like a million times by this emoloyee who followed me and asked me if i needed any help or was ready to check out. At first i thought it was nice of her to offer, but then it turned into harassment. The next time she approcahed me, I was waiting in the pharmacy waiting area. She asked me if she could search me and that certainly raised questions for me. This is how the rest of the conversation proceeded:

Walgreens employee: hi ma’am did you wanna check out or were you ready now?

Me: no, thank you. I’m waiting for my prescriptions and then I’ll head over to the register when I’m ready.

Emoloyee : okay, well do you mind if I count your items in your cart?

Me: for what ? .

Employee: to make sure you walk out with the same items that are your in your cart

Me: wait..what???! I needed to make sure I heard this correctly, so I asked her again…I’m sorry , what.

Employee: walks over and gets closer to my cart and repeats “..its to make sure you walk out with the same stuff you had in your cart.”

Me: are you accusing that I’m going to steal these things ?

Employee: I’m just doing my job.

Me: then yes, I do mind. So is this a common practice …do you this with every single customer that walks into Walgreen’s?

Employee: disregards everything i just said and starts counting and searching my cart, purse , and belongings anyways

Me: I said, I do mind .
Employee continues to search.
Me: you do understand that what you’re doing is illegal and goes against your “job”don’t you?,

I further questioned her actions. she confirmed that they don’t do this to everyone and that she didn’t think she was in any violation. I demanded to speak to the store manager. The manager was a joke and wasn’t of any help even after I explained to him what happened with this emoloyee. He refused to take any written complaint . Told me I needed to call corporate and that there was simply nothing he could do. To make matters worse, it got worse!

As soon as I got done checking out at the pharmacy, I went to the front register to purchase the remaining of my items in my cart. I used my balance rewards points on my transaction along with coupons. When I left the store after purchasing my stuff, I didn’t realize till I got to my car that I there was no receipt. So I went back in asking to have a copy of the receipt . The girl told me she was new so she would just need a mangers help . I said, no problem ! She grabbed the same manager from earlier to help. He said he needed something to scan like, one of the items or my credit card to locate the transaction, so I gave him my card and the bag of items. He disappeared for minutes and when came back he explained to me that the girl forgot to ring up serval items from the bag. He said he reviewed the video tapes and saw that she threw my receipt away in the back office. He took my bag away and told me that i never paid for these items. Hmmm. He told me that this was very weird. I asked him what he meant ….he explained that it was weird that she was helping me and went all the way back of the store to throw away my receipt. I then asked him what is it that you’re trying to say? Are you expressing that there’s some sort of conspiracy? He then implied that there was of some sort of conspiracy, as if she purposely did this to benefit me. At that point , I knew I needed to take further actions against this manager who was also making wrongful and false accusations about me. I asked to speak to his manager or a higher one, but he refused to do this. I proceeded with calling the police to file a report on this store. I ended up returning the items that from my understanding were purchased by me or my card=my money and leaving with my meds and several negative thoughts about this place. When I finally got out of this place , I came to several conclusions about Walgreen’s .

This is what I have to say to Walgreen’s and corporate: first, I am still shocked that this happened to me. Im even more shocked that this situation was left unresolved. Clearly, customer service is not a stength for the employees at retail or corporate level.

Excuse me if I’m not dreseed to impress, but I was too sick to even dress myself. I didn’t specialize in law, but I do know that never are you allowed to search me while I’m still shopping/or done with shopping and wrongfully accuse me of something I didnt comit. Your emoloyee crossed line and i think you can agree that this is not up for debate or negotiation . This is a place where the employees and manager were very unprofessional and are left to violate certain customers rights. Where its OKAY to racially profile and target others based on certain “characteristics” and how they appear on the outside. I just filed my 3rd complaint to walgreens regarding this issue and clearly my voice is not being heard. I have yet to receive a follow up from corporate about this. I sit here every day shocked, scarred and left in humiliation that this company could allow their employees to do this to me/humiliate me in public while others watched and so much more! Its more than ridiculous, its against the law. Your emolyees clearly do not understand this. Perhaps you should inform of what you can and cannot do to people, regardlesss of race or what they look like, or how they are dressed when shopping at their local walgreens. Also, I have not stepped foot in a Walgreen’s since this incident and have no plans to ever to do so. I do plan on continuing to share my story with several others through word of mouth and social media (twitter, Instagram, facebook, tumblr, all others.) This is wrong and I hope others who have experienced this same concern are encouraged to speak out.



Rich July 31, 2015 at 4:47 pm

I talked to the ‘manager’ of the Walgreens in west Boca Raton today about a problem with their inept pharmacist who decided to throw out my script for pain meds (given to me to fill before my surgery so I wouldn’t have to wait in line while in pain). The guy, while leaning on the counter, bouncing like at a playground, didn’t give a damn. He flat out told me that he didn’t care less about me or my problem.
Walgreens store managers: nothing but TALKING HEADS.


andrea davis April 9, 2015 at 5:49 pm

I just went to Walgreen today, like I do most days, and was treated like an idiot. I usually go to Taylor station road Walgreen in Columbus Ohio, they are fantastic and friendly. I decided because I was closer to Brice rd Walgreen I would go there, big mistake. I just tried to make a COMPLAINT on Walgreen website but apparently they don’t want to here it. It wouldn’t process through once I selected a store. So upset by the horrible actions of the manager and two black women employees that I will definitely be calling a corporate number tomorrow morning. The two women were arguing with me about the price of Easter candy which was advertised 50%off. I have a degree , I know that half of 3 dollars is 1.50$. These women , supposed walgreen employees hated me from the second I walked in their checkout. They said half of 3 was 2.50. So, they could have been professional. I didn’t have to buy the stupid jelly beans. After they kept belittling me the mamma manager came. In stead of telling her clerk’s that they shouldn’t be shaking their necks around and trying to intimidate me she tells me to leave????!!! I thought I must be losing my mind, but I wasn’t hallucinating. Brice road Walgreen I hope someone fires all of your ghetto fabulous employees. This kind of behavior is ok at the block party, not in a respectfully business.PLEASE SOMEONE LOOK INTO THE HORRIBLE CONDITION OF THIS STORE, pharmacy included. I have since talked to friends and they have had bad experiences there too, by the way it is thursday April9


sarah April 16, 2015 at 7:23 pm

Isn’t this crazy?? I couldn’t believe what happened to me! You’re right on Walgreen’s not wanting to hear it as this is my 4th complaint about my issue. I’m starting to wonder if there’s this pattern in corporste not stepping up to these concerning and real issues and in the hiring proces . Could it be that Walgreen’s is attracted to people who have these “awesome” skills= abilitiy to lack understanding . You should read my crazy experience!!


Rich July 31, 2015 at 4:38 pm

Sarah, where is your story? Aren’t there ANY happy Walgreens customers?? Haha


Rich July 31, 2015 at 4:49 pm

Nevermind, I saw it. Same stupid stuff. Walgreens. It’s a Shame too, they used to care about their customers and just did their jobs. Now they give a fake “hello” when you walk in but they don’t give a damn about anything but clocking out. They CERTAINLY don’t care about their shoppers!

THIS is the nicest comment I’ve seen so far here!


Sherri April 6, 2015 at 9:32 pm
