Birthday Cards, Nail Polish, Sushi

Jan 15, 2013


Changing the landscape of drugstores, Walgreen's recently opened a 23,500-square-foot Walgreen's in Hollywood which boasts nail salons, cafes serving hand rolled sushi, fresh made smoothies, and milkshakes.

A year ago, Walgreen's introduced its new flagship store in downtown Chicago: a two-story building on historic State Street where customers can enjoy hand-rolled sushi, made-to-order smoothies and malted milkshakes, artisanal cheeses, hundreds of wines, on-site manicures and eyebrow grooming.

While I can truly appreciate picking up my prescription - and a bottle or two of wine in one stop, one can't help but to be a tad leery associating Sashimi and Walgreen's.  Admittedly, it is less frightening than the gas stations seen in Memphis that sold "sushi", but I can't help but feel a tad skeptical purchasing raw fish from my local drugstore.

Having said all that, I'll be the FIRST person to patronize the Fro Yo counter to nosh on while I peruse. Fro Yo AND shopping?  Why, that's a match made in heaven folks.

Would you buy sushi from a drugstore?
