About us

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 included in the Retail Pharmacy USA Division of Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc., the first global pharmacy-led, health well being enterprise. In addition, Walgreens was recently recognized on Fortune magazine’s 2019 “Change the World” list, and Walgreens Boots Alliance has been ranked No.18 among 2019’s hot 100 retailers in the National Retail Federation’s Stores magazine.
