Walgreen's Up Market: Fresh Bus Tour!

Last week, Walgreen's latest came rolling through the Orlando area. 

The Up Market: Fresh Bus Tour came in on a custom-made, 40 ft bus and stopped at local Walgreens to provide residents samples of its new innovative FRESH food and refreshments. 

Side note here: I love that Walgreens is doing this. I don't know about you, but I hate going to the grocery store. I prefer to make a quick trip to my Walgreens to pick up some items and I love that they are now going to have fresh food for me to pick up when I'm getting my milk, my scripts and the latest gossip magazine. It's a win-win situation!  

This event rolled through 15 Walgreens stores in the area and their goal was to transform the typical drug store into a health and living store.

The stores have been redesigned and now offer the following cool things:

  • "A pharmacist located in front of the pharmacy, offering a greater opportunity for patient consultation and health care services such as vaccinations and health testing;
  • A new Walgreens staff member called a Health Guide, equipped with an iPad and available to answer product and service questions, helps customers navigate the store and their health care options and sign up for events;
  • Take Care Clinics, located in a limited number of stores, offer walk-in, accessible and affordable health care services provided by nurse practitioners;
  • Fresh food, including fruits and vegetables, meats, prepared salads, sandwiches, wraps, take-and-bake pizzas and other on-the-go meal options;
  • An enhanced beauty department display featuring prestige and niche cosmetic, skincare and hair care brands not typically found in drugstores;
  • Web pickup service that allows customers to shop online and pick up the order at their neighborhood Walgreens;
  • Express Rx or self-serve touch-screen kiosks that allow patients to quickly pick up and pay for prescriptions refills that they have ordered ahead of time."
Pretty nifty, huh?

To celebrate the Up Market: Fresh Bus Tour, I'm giving away three, yes THREE, $25 Walgreens gift cards!

All you need to do tell me what new, fresh convenient items that Walgreens is offering is right up your alley.

Easy, huh?

Everything! I mean really, my hubby works nights in a city where Walgreen's is the only thing open 24 hours besides a burger place. He will not only be able to eat better on the job but also bring home things for us!

I love that you can pick up prescriptions at a kiosk! It always takes forever at my Walgreens. The smoothies are awesome too.

Fresh fruits is the best since you can snack on them without getting too much calories.
