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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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!!
