|Me on the Walgreens red carpet at the opening of the 8000th store!|
This year continues to be full of new and interesting experiences. The most recent experience happened just this weekend. I traveled to Los Angeles with my team from Collective Bias to support and celebrate Walgreens as they opened their 8000th store. This store, located at the iconic Hollywood intersection, Sunset & Vine, is absolutely NOT just a drugstore. It features a Look Boutique with carefully selected high-end cosmetics, an eyebrow bar, and well-trained Beauty Advisors. There are several “bars”: sushi, frozen yogurt (complete with toppings!), coffee, and a smoothie and juice bar. As if that wasn’t enough, there is also an extensive wine section complete with a virtual bartender to help customers with their wine selection!
