WALGREEN CO. Competition

Walgreen's prescription for world domination of the drugstore industry relies on acquisitions at home and abroad. The nation's #1 drugstore chain operates more than 8,600 mostly freestanding Walgreens stores in all 50 US states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Prescription drugs account for about two-thirds of sales; the rest comes from general merchandise, over-the-counter medications, cosmetics, and groceries. Most Walgreens stores offer drive-through pharmacies and one-hour photo processing. In a strategic shift, Walgreen has become increasingly acquisitive. Having blanketed the US with its drugstores, ubiquitous Walgreen is now looking to Europe and fill-in acquisitions at home for growth.
