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.

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????
