Walgreens wants to buy Rite Aid!

submitted on October 27, 2015 by HouTex in "Stores / Merchants"
Since these two parties are the #2 and #3 chains in size, the merger would give them 13,000 locations and push them past CVS with 7,800. You may remember that Walgreens already bought Duane Reade in 2010.

The proposed mega-merger will have to pass antitrust review before they can complete the deal.

    It will be a good merger, although I shop Rite Aid all the time on my way home from work.

    Walgreens has adopted a ONE coupon per ORDER policy! I tried to use my usual 4 Tide coupons on 4 bottles of Tide. They said one per purchase. The coupons say 4 per transaction. I talked to the manager & she said that is corprate policy now. Have to ring up each coupon as a seperate transaction! I told her the reason for all coupons saying one per purchase is to keep people from using more than one coupon per item. I will not be shopping @ Walgreens any more.

    Whaaat❔
    They still let you use all 4 though; you just had to ring up all 4 separately, correct?
    Pretty inconvenient❕
    Or did they TOTALLY reject your other 3???
    Confused

      The register beeped on the second coupon to reject any more being used. I was going to also receive the 5000 rewards points by buying more than $20 in P&G products.(like I had done many times in the past) So I did'nt buy it, ringing it up seperatly would knock me out of getting the points. Talked to the mgr.,she said she would go and push the coupons through for me but I said no. Used them @ Food City a few days later @ the self scan, no problem.
