    A Winning Strategy

    "Unlike Walmart and Target, Walgreens remains focused on the pharmacy business that brought it into being and not on selling every product imaginable. It's been that way for the last quarter-century since then-CEO Charles Walgreen III decided to sell off side ventures, including its Globe discount stores, travel agency, optical centers, Sanborns department stores in Mexico and Wag's fast-food restaurants"

    • I worked at one of the Globe-Walgreens way back when. The place sold everything imaginable. Boats, bait, ammo, sporting goods, etc. Happy memories, but I like the current Walgreens format better.
