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 am writing in regards to the Walgreen’s pharmacy in Mexico MO, and let me just start off by saying that I WILL NEVER USE THEM AGAIN , I caught my diabetes early because I have seen the symptoms before in my mother but so far now the script that was called in by my doctor for my test strips to be paid for through my Medicare prescription plan has been SCREWED UP TWICE , the first time they gave me my script no problem got it the next day , only to find out that they gave me the wrong test strips , so you would think take the wrong ones back in with the receipt where I paid for them and it would be a simple matter of them exchanging them for the correct ones , WRONG again , they told me that they had to resubmit it through my Medicare and guess what all at once there was issues , ok I can give them that maybe , I BOUGHT a bottle of strips for almost 30 bucks to hold me over until I could get my script , then this morning they called me and told me that my script was ready after almost a week and having to borrow a tester that my sister was no longer using , so I think Great I can go back to mine , WRONG AGAIN , I went through the drive through window and they asked if I had a secondary insurance card so that maybe they could get my cost down to Zero from $12.49 , so I gave them my Medicaid card and for some reason that got their system all messed up where they couldn’t take it off and let me have my script that was already filled and setting there on the counter , I told them that I had no problem paying for the script at the price they told me to begin with but they wouldn’t let me have it , so now I am again waiting on some screw up that they are blaming on Medicare again which I don’t believe it is Medicare that is messing up , I believe that it is the Pharmacy and I feel as if they should give me my test strips and if Medicare doesn’t pay them back then they can just eat the cost of them for all of my pain and suffering and stress trying to get this taken care of , basically they have filled it twice now and when I get there to get it something is always Messed up , I HAVE HAD IT WITH THEM and would appreciate a call back from someone from headquarters TODAY about this issue and what they are going to do about it , the script is for 300 Contour Next strips and I need them NOW because I may have to be leaving to go out of state within the next few days and I NEED MY STRIPS ! you can contact me at 573-473-1654 and you had better be calling to tell me that I can go pick them up at no charge at all because it has been the pharmacies mess up from the word go , the least you can do is give me my dang strips ! I will also tell anyone that I know NOT TO BE USEING THAT PHARMACY !
Sincerely yours from one stressed out woman who really does not need all this mess
(ps I am also a stage 3 colon cancer survivor so the last thing I need is the run around about my scripts )

This is a compliment and complaint. I’m writing this because I was very sadden to hear that today was one of your best employees last day at the Walgreens at 600 Newark Ave, Elizabeth, NJ 07208. I have been a happy customer to this walgreens for over 10 years and I was always greeted with a smile and the perfect customer service energy by your employee Ms. Green. I asked her why she was leaving she mentioned that she had worked there for nearly 14 years and she was reduced from full time to part time and then to 4 days a week and then 3 days a week and now 1 day a week. As a single mother she is unable to afford her cost of living at 1 day a week salary. She said going on unemployment will pay her more. SHAME ON YOU WALGREENS FOR FORCING SUCH A GOOD REPRESENTATIVE OF YOUR COMPANY TO LEAVE!!!! No reason why she should not be able to still have enough hours to maintain her life as she had been in years past. By the way even on her last day (today) she still was smiling and pleasant and exclaimed that she loved working there. If you want have a good representative for your company you should be happy to do whatever needs to be done to keep her on board. Hard work and dedication needs to be recognized through merrit not through forcing out.

I too have a complaint. The Walgreen’s in Sebring south, Sebring, Fl needs some dyer help. I myself no longer go there, I changed to CVS because I could not take the stupidity of the way the Pharmacy is run. I do take care of my ex husband and call his medication into this Walgreen’s. The last time I did that, they gave him a partial fill because they were out of that particular medication. That was on Aug. 19th…on the 21st I called and was told that a truck would be in later that evening and it should be ready then. On the morning of the 22nd I called and was told a truck would be in later that day…no such luck. On the morning of the 25th I called again and was told the same story, by that time I lost patience and blew my top because my ex husband was out of the medication by that time. I did have someone call me back the same day and by later on that evening I did receive the medication. My fear is that what happens if someone dies waiting on this pharmacy to refill prescription’s? Does Walgreen’s really want a lawsuit because eventually that is what is going to happen! I will continue to talk my ex husband into changing to CVS because he can not afford to go without his meds. Walgreen’s, you need to wake up! I’m sure Mr. Charles Walgreen’s Sr. is rolling over in his grave!

To whom it may concern; My name Is Kathleen, I live in Hartford, CT 06105 I’m writing you with a complaint about one your Walgreen at 161 Washington, Street, Hartford, CT 06106, 1-(860)522-5005, I’ve been calling for more than an hour and there’s no answer or teleprompter to pick the phone line up so that I may call my husband medication in, so that Ican then in turn pay for a ride to pick his meds up. I ddon’t drive and my husband can’t walk to pick up his meds because of his toes has been amputated due to diabetes and the Doctor’s want him to keep pressure off of the right foot.

Walgreens located at I-45 N & Tamina, TX. TERRIBLE pharmacy! I’ve filled out survey form with a request for personal contact from headquarters. Never had a response. Only 1 pharmacist on duty except from the hours of 1-3p.m. Quite often your new prescription has 25-100+ customers before you.
I’ve had RX’s lost and auto refill status shut off. My RX’s have been delayed because they are contacting the doctor. WRONG doctor, mine retired 2 years ago. Also, they were given my new 6 month RX by my new doctor and used it last month but lost it.

TODAY was the TOPPER! After 3 call-in’s by my husbands doctor the pharmacy has yet to fill his RX. WHY? They say (as usual) they have not received a call back. I opened my records to find out why they are sending me texts that my auto refill RX is delayed and find my husbands call-in RX’s were placed in my name!!! My husband has diabetes and needs his RX’s!!

-Flu shot availability is slow and just as time consuming as a doctor visit.

-Every 6 months my new RX’s are delayed because they don’t have them and must contact my doctor. Originally my refill date started on the first of the month. Now they are different days and dated from the 20th and on.

-No solution to a problem can be solved by phone. One MUST go directly to the counter to correct it AND you must return and return because they didn’t enter the problem to correct it.

-It took 3 months to change to my new insurance coverage.

-Never tell me my RX isn’t covered by my insurance. They put it on Walgeens discount. Very easily I could call my doctor to request an RX that is covered.

It’s a MAJOR headache to deal with them! Our area has a population of over 100,000 and we have 1 Pharmacist? During flu season there is no place to stand in line to pick up your monthly RX’s.

Doesn’t ONE PERSON in Corporate care????
