Founded over a century ago in 1901, we have a rich and colorful history of continuous improvement and innovation at Walgreens. From inventing the world’s first chocolate malted milkshake to the creation of one of the most popular and sophisticated mobile applications in retail shopping today, we have transformed ourselves into a leader within the retail and drug industry. Walgreens, one of the nation’s largest drugstore chains, is the Retail Pharmacy USA Division of Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc., a global leader in retail and wholesale pharmacy.
In the U.S., Walgreens is the neighborhood retailer that makes health and well-being within reach for everyone on a daily basis. We are 240,000 team members strong and one of the largest drugstore chains in the U.S., with nearly 9,000 stores in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. In fact, did you know there’s a Walgreens store located within five miles of approximately 78 percent of all Americans? And every day, we touch the lives of more than 8 million customers in our stores and online.
We’re also a trusted wellness provider that supplies customers, patients and payers with everything from acute prescriptions and vaccinations to specialty pharmaceuticals and wellness services. And to our team members, Walgreens represents a unique opportunity to excel in their careers in a welcoming and inclusive environment.
