Walgreens to expand fresh food offerings at stores

Now more use for those Walgreen coupons


Walgreen Co. plans to expand its fresh food offerings in several hundred stores in coming years, company chief executive officer Greg Wasson told shareholders this afternoon.

Addressing 2,500 shareholders at the company’s annual meeting at Navy Pier on Chicago’s lakefront, Wasson said such stores fit the company’s strategy to evolve from a “retail drugstore to a retail ‘health and daily living store.’”

Walgreen Co., which offers more and more health and wellness needs, began to test out fresh foods such as fruits and vegetables last year, particularly in poor urban markets where access to healthy food choices is a problem.

    Interesting concept. Hopefully the prices won't be too high because it's often much more convenient to just pick up the items you need at the drugstore rather than going to an over-sized grocery store and end up buying more than you need.
