Walgreens debuts Boston flagship store in historic bank building - Part 3

BOSTON — Walgreens VP merchandising, store design and well experience Bryan Pugh walked DSN through the company’s newest flagship store, here, in downtown Boston, Tuesday, a day before the official ribbon cutting of the store.

The expansive, 25,000+-sq.-ft. store, including more than 17,000 sq. ft. of selling space and more than 20,000 SKUs, features a new interactive kiosk that allows customers to sample a selection of beauty products for $1. Also unique to the new Boston store is a special tie-in between the city of Boston’s Boston Moves initiative and Walgreen’s Steps with Balance Rewards program. A Boston Moves kiosk is located just outside of pharmacy.

The store also is home to the company’s 45th Look Boutique and its third Boots No 7 boutique.
