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 on Facebook today and I came across someone by the name of Amber Winston, she stated that she is a manager at walgreens and that if anyone puts 200 dollars on a vanilla pack card, which i believe is the reloadable cards, she said she could add a zero and make it 2000, she will keep 500 of it and someone else would take 1500. She is stealing from the company, other people said they would report her, i really hope something is done about this, because right now she’s getting away with it. I believe this is in the Chicago area. Her facebook page shows she goes to university of Illinois. She needs to be stopped.

I experienced some of the rudest service from the Walgreens in Daytona Beach on LPGA Blvd and Nova Rd on April 1, 2014 at approximately 12:00 p.m. The pharmacist (who had blonde hair, tall, and slender) was extremely rude and unwilling to help me. My doctor obviously was unaware of a dose that no longer was available, and when I gave the prescription to him his comment were, “this guy doesn’t know what he is doing (circled the doctor’s name), the manufacturer no longer makes that brand, You need to take this back to the doctor, or I could fax. However there is no telling how long that will take and I don’t want you to call every hour to see if it has been filled.” With a nasty and haste tone.I told him I could take it someplace else them. Then he quickly responds with a little chuckle “no one has this strength anymore they do make it anymore!” After talking a deep breath, because I really wanted say some very nasty words to him. I looked at him with a smile and told him to go ahead and fax it, and I will call the doctor to let him know it was being faxed. A few moments later, I called the doctor’s office (I wasn’t even out of the building yet), and they said to put him on the phone and they will take care of it over the phone. I waited about 5 minutes while other assistants just looked at me and he was talking to them. By then the doctor had to go, and asked to have the pharmacist to call back. When I relayed the message, to the pharmacist he responded, “here’s a card have him call me…I have other calls to make,” again in a nasty rude tone! I took my prescription down the road to another location, because I didn’t appreciate how I was being treated. I have been a long time customer with Walgreen’s and the store in Ormond Beach, FL., on the corner of Granda Rd. and Tymbercreek Rd., They are the reason my husband and I started to use your company exclusively. The people at that store are kind, well-mannered, very helpful, and willing to go out of there way to help with any issues or questions I could have had!! Couldn’t give them enough praise, in fact we make sure the manager at that location gets a Christmas card every year, because he is an amazing person and extremely helpful. Be thankful you have people like him, because it it wasn’t for him I would start shopping at CVS instead. I recently moved to Daytona Beach, FL and this Walgreens is exactly .8 miles from my home versus the store in Ormond Beach which is about 20 mins away from my new home. This is not the first bad experience I have had at the location in Daytona Beach either. One of their drive through lanes was down, and the lane they designated pick-up only was the only one open. I had just left the hospital with my sick infant and wanted to drop off her medications so she could start them right away. Given that she was sick and I didn’t want to take her in to the store I decided to go through the drive-thru. When she asked who I was picking up for I tried to explain me little girl was sick and I wanted to drop the prescriptions off. She in turn rolled her eyes and took a deep breath and blew it out like I was inconveniencing her! Another time, same location mind you, My husband went to drop his prescription of and it happened to be two days early. The same pharmacist as previously mentioned told him he could not drop the prescription off early, yet as soon as my husband began to walk away the person behind him turned in a prescription ‘TWO DAYS EARLY’ and the pharmacists said it was okay!!! My husband turned around and asked he could do the same and the pharmacists rudely told him NO! Now, for a company that advertises and prides themselves for ALL their pharmacists a kind, understanding, and helpful. This store completely missed that train. I will relay my message all over every social media site I have which all of them about the horrendous experiences I have had with this location and tell everyone I come into contact with not to shop there. I am a server, so needless to say, I know what it is like to deal with rude and inconsiderate people. I deal with them on a daily basis, but I was not rude or inconsiderate. I realize the exclusive business that my husband and I do with your business doesn’t meant that much to you, and my father-in-law who frequently goes to Walgreens to fill his multitude of prescriptions with your company doesn’t mean much. But attitudes like the one I received on multiple occasions will eventually begin to impact your business in a negative way. Horrible…horrible experience and very dissatisfied with the service I received. I will never return to that location!

To whom it may concern: i am an employee of drugstore.com. recently a fellow employee was arrested for child pornography. 2 days later he was back at work working with us. I do not understand why? I think its wrong that he is still employed with the company. He should be terminated. I feel very uncomfortable with him still working with us. His name is tim clark. This is the company in swedesboro new jersey.

I have been doing business at this Walgreens (5501 Wesleylan Dr. Virginia Beach, VA) for more then thirteen years and have never had the problems that I had the last two times I got prescriptions filled. I talked to the on duty manager on each occasion but it didn’t seem to make a difference. In your pharmacy you have a new hire named Whitney. Unfortunately Whitney has a real attitude problem! She is rude, obnoxious and oblivious . She also lied to me, that is when she even acknowledged that I was there which was not often. This incident was very upsetting to me. When I finally got my prescriptions filled, it had taken close to three hours which I find unacceptable. There were other factors in this incident. However, the point is I do not want to be disrespected, disregarded or ignored when I am in your store. I don’t feel like I should have to feel uncomfortable while shopping at Walgreens ! That was the first incident. The second incident which occured yesterday was almost as bad. Whitney must have remembered me, ignored me when I asked her a question and preceded to tell the pharmacist to wait on me because she wouldn’t. The woman in line behind me even made a comment to me about how rude that girl was! i guess I will have to change pharmacies so I don’t have to put up with that behavior everytime I need a prescription filled. Too bad, that store was very convenient for me. Oh, by the way, I don’t think any of my family or friends will be patronizing a store that lets its employees treat customers in such a way. I hope things change in the pharmacy because as I said before this was a convenient pharmacy for me to use.

Sincerely,
Betsy VanderWilt

I contacted Walgreens about the issue of a particular medication not being available and was told that I would hear back within 2 days….well guess what…it’s the end of the week and no one called or left a message.

Is this the new Walgreens? You are very fortunate that I like the Walgreens that I use because there are closer competitors.

The Walgreen’s pharmacy in Hanford, CA has some real losers working in it; particularly the weekend pharmacist and some woman who weighs approximately 200 pound and has a reddish-pink hair dye job. Neither of them understood that months on a Gregorian calendar are sometimes more (and less for this month) than 30 days. They also cannot comprehend simple mathematics. I don’t know what drug rehab they found the extremely rude one with the reddish-pink hair, but she needs a lesson in manners and customer service. The weekend pharmacist may know how to fill prescriptions, but as an ESL-learner, she has a long way to go in understanding our calendar. I’m taking my prescriptions to another Walgreen’s from now on.

The rest of the Hanford Walgreen’s is very well run; I do business with their photo department on a regular basis and I like their 3 for $4 deals on theater-sized candy. But the pharmacy couldn’t be any worse. I’m going to write a formal letter to the corporate office this week, but in the meantime, I just wanted to warn anyone who lives in that area to either find another pharmacy to go to or drive the seven miles to the Walgreen’s in Lemoore. I lived there for a few months and they have competent human beings working in their pharmacy.

This complaint is going to the corporate idiots that have outsourced the construction foremans to the Beam Team…… Which will be recieving multiple complaints. These men have have always went beyond the call of duty to produce outstanding stores for this company. Now, in the hands of The Beam Team they have no tools, no honesty….. Everything promised has not been kept. This company has not produced a fit store… Nor will they. They have already made it abundatley clear that it is their job scope to slap it together and leave it. I have been a very proud wife of a man that was one of your formans. Likewise I have shopped walgreens regularly while advertising by mouth for you to all my freinds and family all ove the United States. My husband is with the baem team now and is miserable along with two other foremans….. They have their hands tied and cant produce a store like they did before. I feel like the buisness decision to do buisness with this company was handled unprofessonaly or they have pulled the cover over your eyes…. I know for a fact that the employees have been addressed not to keep the Walgreens Project Man in the loop…… When your plan was to have eyes on them….. Your no longer at the corner of healthy and happy….. Now your at the corner of crappy stores and its all Thanks to Yourselves….. Go figure that a company that basis their buisness on being people friendly and excellant customer service is to much into saving a penny than if a cornas, shelfs, or signs fall on their customers:-X……. You should have hired them yourselves if you didnt want to pay union dues……. FROM WHAT HAS BEEN SAID THE FINAL AGREEMENT HAS NOT BEEN REACHED WHICH MEANS YOU NEED TO THINK ABOUT THIS LOWER STANDARDS MOVE AND HOW MANY TIMES YOU WILL LOOSE MORE MONEY ON STORE OPENINGS … BEING SUED BY PEOPLE GETTING HURT… AND BY NOT PASSING INSPECTIONS, ETC….

I would like to Thank Steve @ Walgreens on the corner of Ladson & Dorchester rd in Summerville SC. He went above and beyond to help me with my daughters meds. It was new years eve and he took the time to help explain everything I needed to do, what had to be done to get my daughters RX on time- she had a deadline to start taking the meds.

Thank you again Steve,

Walgreens used my card 5 times without my permission for someone else’s prescriptions for a total of over $400 before I cancelled my card for fraudulent use. And surprise, surprise, Corporate will not call me back as their customer service reps promised. LOUSY way to run a business.

Walgreens is oh so going downhill, making same mistakes as other companies, treating employees like robots, and customers like numbers! Putting profits ahead of employee safety, and treating managers like slaves. Impossible goals, and lack of workable employees, reducing good staff to meaningless positions, and expecting non achievable results. I have many years experience, and have seen this before. Thank God I am leaving soon. I really feel sorry for the employees, and managers. If you really want to expose what they are doing (a lot is ill illegal ) report to tv news, or attorney . Expose em!

I will be attending the annual meeting next week to share my opinion of this greedy corrupt corporation. Everyone on the board needs voted out. They care nothing about their employees. I was bullied as a employee to the point I was forced to quit. The open door policy, 4 way test and a healthy Workplace is no longer applicable. Stores are working on skeleton crews and customer service is at it’s worse. BUT the stock is up. At what cost?
Boycott Walgreens until the employees are treated better. Be kind to them. After all they are all the customers know.

I can’t believe that you are making your employees work on Christmas Day what is this world coming to. Your corporation makes millions a year and you are so money hungry that you won’t give them one day off to be with family. Walgreens you are a heartless corporation and for those CEOs that agreed to this idea may you have horrible Christmas if you even celebrate it you probly don’t even believe in God just your bank account. May your new year be a pure hell. Christmas is a celebration of life & GOD & family.

Way to go Richard! The PC terrorists in this country are getting out of hand. I am disgusted with these spineless companies for caving. Of course, Walgreen’s is no great loss as they are incapable of violating numbers of laws including copywrite laws governing their use of the phrase, “be well”.
And Wally, just how much shares to you hold in anything. Obviously an education wasn’t a priority for you but at least you learned the 1st amendment and are showing it by your personal rant against someone who I hope, you don’t know. It’s easier than looking someone in the eye to rant online.
Merry Christmas to you both. Oops, I just offended someone, I’m sure. Get over it!
