Walgreen has been my trusted pharmacy for over 30 years, and I want you to know that I am truly honored to be there. I have known and admired Dr. J, who treated my grandfather and I, for over three decades, as a pharmacy technician and my friend for so long, that I have a personal relationship with the pharmacy.
When Walgreen was sold to the current owners, I was one of the first executives to sign off on the purchase because I was concerned that Walgreen might not be able to keep it up to the standards expected of the industry and what they had to offer. I was very concerned that they might be more concerned about their financial future and not about the quality of their products.
We still have Walgreen’s same “no-tipping policy” where if you are in the store, you should tip when you get your prescription. But we’ve also introduced a new policy where customers can tip up to $5 per prescription. This allows you to save a few bucks on your prescription while still ensuring the customer has a nice tip.
The new policy doesn’t apply to walk-ins. It only applies to prescriptions that have been prescribed and filled. This means that you can still tip for a walk-in even though you aren’t in the store. We have also added a couple new rewards programs. The first is a $100 gift card with Walgreens. It’s good for one year.
