A New Look for Walgreens

( Chicago Tribune )

Walgreens drugstores are going upscale. They just opened a new Look Boutique two weeks ago in a new flagship Walgreens store in Chicago – the largest Walgreens in the country, at the corner of State and Randolph Streets. The Look Boutiques will operate similar to independent stores such as Sephora and Ulta. They’ll feature upscale and drugstore brands, with beauty advisers to assist customers.

The Look Boutique concept was first introduced in the Duane Reads flagship store in Manhattan in 2009. After Walgreens acquired the chain in 2011, they decided to incorporate Look Boutiques into the Walgreens chain. In addition to Chicago, there are two Look Boutiques in California, one in Florida, and one in Texas. Hopefully the Look Boutique will be coming to a Walgreens near you.
