  • Most of the locations will be ones that are situated in close proximity to another Walgreens.
  • The synergies from the Alliance Boots acquisition will continue to be a bottom-line driver for the company. By all accounts, the integration is on schedule.
  • The combination of a harsh winter and a mild flu season cut into store traffic and margins during FQ2, according to execs.
