BOSTON – Walgreen Co. debuted its latest flagship store here late last month.
The outlet is the ninth in the drug chain’s growing roster of showcase stores.
Located in the city’s Downtown Crossing neighborhood, the 24-hour store includes all of the features found in Walgreens’ other flagship stores across the country, including an enhanced, state-of-the-art pharmacy designed to encourage greater interaction between pharmacists and patients; a Look Boutique beauty department featuring dozens of prestige and niche cosmetics, skin care and hair care brands; hundreds of fresh food items including produce and high-quality, on-the-go meal options such as wraps, sandwiches and salads made fresh daily; and an Upmarket Cafe staffed by a barista.
"We are transforming into a retail health and daily living destination that offers our customers unique and exceptional experiences to help them get, stay and live well," president of operations and community management Mark Wagner says about the ongoing rollout of flagships.
