This well known pharmacy established their roots over 110 years ago and their legacy still continues to cement itself into corporate American history.
In 1901 Charles R. Walgreen, Sr. opened his first drug store on the corner of Bowen and Cottage Grove in Chicago, Illinois.
Within three years Walgreens had grown to include five stores. During that time Walgreen, Sr. had added some amenities to his little drug store. He had added soda fountains and a lunch area.
He also started creating his own drug products and was selling them at a discount when compared to the big name brands.
The company has continued to grow and expand and now has over 200,000 employees nationwide. With over 8,000 stores nationwide it’s no wonder why this is the leading pharmacy in the United States today.
What makes Walgreens so popular is their pharmacy. As one of their licensed pharmacists you actually have a lot of options.
You can work as a community pharmacist in one of the numerous retail locations, as one of their many onsite pharmacists with many of the hospitals and business associated with Walgreens or even as a home care pharmacist. The choice is all yours.
To run a pharmacy smoothly pharmacy technicians are a must. When you work for Walgreens you know that you are getting some of the best training in the country.

Walgreens isn’t just a pharmacy though and people do come in to get regular everyday items. For that they rely on their talent retail crew to care for their customers.
