Walgreens opened its 8,000th location this past weekend in Los Angeles. The flagship features offerings not typical at drug stores, such as a fresh sushi bar, high-end wines and a barista-attended coffee bar.
The store also touts a "state of the art" pharmacy designed to encourage greater interaction between pharmacists and patients, the announcement said. Fresh food, beauty advisors and a smoothie bar will also be available in the store.
"We are thrilled to locate our milestone 8,000th store and latest flagship store at such a famous intersection as we bring a format unlike any traditional drugstore to the Hollywood community," said Joe Magnacca, Walgreens president of daily living products and solutions. "Walgreens aims to be America’s first choice for health and daily living, and we look forward to providing an exceptional experience for our customers as we help them get, stay and live well."
