In December, Walgreens celebrated a major milestone when it opened store No. 8,000 in Los Angeles at the famed corner of Sunset and Vine. The store, Walgreens first West Coast-based flagship location, is the site of the former Tower Record store and perhaps more notably, the site of the former Schwab's drug store, where such Hollywood starlets as Lana Turner are rumored to have been discovered.
Like all of Walgreens' flagships, the new Los Angeles store pushes the envelope on what consumers would expect to find in a typical drug store. In this segment of DSNTV Virtual Store Tours, DSN editor Rob Eder travels to Hollywood to meet with key members of Walgreens' merchandising and store design teams for a firsthand look at the new store.
