We may not need another pharmacy in Birmingham but this will be a fine addition to the triangle district--especially with the regional headquarters on the upper floor. For an impressive preview, take a quick tour of the new flagship Walgreens at State Street and Randolph when visiting downtown Chicago--sushi anyone! http://www.suntimes.com/news/brown/9916170-452/new-walgreens-has-sushi.html

I will not shop at Wallgreens again. I just got treated like I was imposing on their time one last time. I've been going to CVS more and more because of their cleanliness, better products, and also being treated like they actually want my business. I've kept going to Walgreens because I get my scripts there. But after today, I'm changing my prescriptions to CVS also. Walgreens might want to hire people who don't hate working there.
