Walgreens is a great example of this. They’ve been making a push into the retail space, and I think they are on the right track. They have been pushing on the same front a lot, and they really are taking a lot of the retail landscape by storm. This time around, they’re also going to be going after the convenience and the food experience.
As a consumer, you’ll most likely be more excited about these new drive-up drugstores than you will about the food you’ll get when you go in. Walgreens is an example of what I call “The convenience store with a big difference.” Instead of walking in and buying something immediately, you’re instead getting to shop for it later. It’s a lot like the car-lite version of Target.
A lot of people complain about Walgreens’ new drive-up drugstores. I agree with that. However, I think they are making a big mistake. They are looking too far into the future. If you need to be able to get something while in the middle of nowhere, Walgreens is not the place for you.
The idea of a Walgreens drive-up drugstore is great. Its an appealing idea. However, Walgreens is still too far into the future. There are still a lot of people who have never had a Walgreens and still struggle with their addiction. Its a huge missed opportunity. The closest Walgreens drive-up will get to being the drugstore of the future, is when Walgreens becomes a grocery store.
The idea behind Walgreens’ new drive-up drug store concept is that it would be a convenient, walk-up pharmacy for people dealing with addiction. In the drive-up, you can get all the latest health and legal products for free. I mean, its like a Walgreens without the drive-up.
Walgreens has a lot of plans to improve their drug store concept. They already have drive-up pharmacy, parking lot, and drive-up restaurant concepts. The company also has a new Walgreens in Las Vegas. They plan to build a new Walgreens to replace the current Walgreens in that location. You can also imagine a Walgreens where the employees are driven to work in SUVs and trucks.
I’m still not sure if Walgreens is the right name for this or not. But I’ve heard all kinds of mixed reactions about it. I’m probably not alone in that.
The new Walgreens concept is an interesting one. It seems like a company that wants to be in the forefront of technology is getting into some exciting new things. Of course, we can’t know what they’re going to do until they actually do it. So when Walgreens announces their new Walgreens, it’s going to be in a location that’s going to be driving people to work. I’m not sure how much of their marketing strategy was actually to drive people.
Walgreens had already started making a lot of headlines with their new technology, and now they’re making more of it. The company has already tested a device that can check your blood glucose levels and make sure you’re not diabetic. In fact, in November the company released a trailer for their new Walgreens technology that shows how Walgreens would be able to analyze your blood glucose levels and tell you when you needed to take your medication.
The technology that Walgreens is testing is basically a digital glucose monitor that lets you see how much of your insulin you’re using, and when you’re not using it. A few years ago Walgreens was testing this technology in the hospital. The hospital said it didn’t work because the machines needed to be calibrated with your blood glucose level and had to be set for all patients.
