This brand-new-at-the-same-address Walgreen’s has gone from being a large, rather tired store to an even larger store in Walgreen’s latest store-design mode.There is now fresh food, a drive-up window for prescriptions, and Walgreen’s Web pickup service. On a more seriouis note, this store now offers HIV/AIDS support (which, presumably, means that they routinely carry the array of very expensive drugs that HIV patients may use, and can counsel on their use) and Home Health Care support, which means they offer lift chairs, ostomy supplies, and other items for patients with special health needs.
