Launch of Walgreens Flagship Store in Boston! (VIDEO)BOSTON AND AROUND, NEWS | Nirasha Jaganath | May 10, 2013 at 10:56 am
I was invited to the opening of the Walgreens store opening by Collective Bias®. I was compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias ™ and Walgreens #CBias #SocialFabric All Opinions are my own. Personally I wondered what the big deal about a store in Boston was since a pharmacy is a pharmacy, right? Up until then I was not sure that a drugstore chain was better than another. But, this was working with Collective Bias and some pretty amazing people there so I said yes. I trusted their instinct and it was a good excuse to see them.
Well the surprise was on me. Well this was a Walgreens Flagship Store! By the time I was done with a tour ans listening to the Walgreens’ Executives I had changed my mind. What is the difference? There’s just so much to say and show and I figured a flurry of pictures would not do it justice. Also that would make an incredibly long post. Instead? I created a video! See it and tell me if it looks like your typical Walgreens or any typical pharmacy? Oh and follow along the conversation on Twitter by following the #BOSWAG hashtag for more news on this launch.
Disclosure: Walgreens has compensated me for attending and covering the launch!
