    WALGREEN'S IS NOT THE SAME COMPANY IT WAS YEARS AGO. IT APPEARS SLOPPY. THE MOVE TO EUROPE IS ALMOST ASSURED BECAUSE THE PRICE OF THE STOCK APPEARS TO HIGH; FOR WHAT THEY OFFER SHAREHOLDERS NOW. WALKING THROUGH WALGREENS I NOTICE ALOT OF CHANGES I DO NOT LIKE.
    THERE EMPLOYEES ARE NOT THE SAME STANDARD THAT WAS IN YEARS PAST. THERE SERVICE IS NOT AS GOOD. THERE PRICES ARE OK. BUT DOLLAR STORE PRICES ARE MUCH BETTER. FRANKLY I WOULD MUCH PREFER TO BUY MOST OF MY GOODS A BIG BOX STORES OR DOLLAR STORES. AS FAR A PRESCRIPTION PHARMACY IS CONCERNED; THERE IS SO MANY MORE PLACES TO FILL PRESCRIPTIONS. I SEE THEM MUDDLING ALONG; WITH NO SPECTACULAR GROWTH.

    Besides their "just-acceptable service ", I have known many friends who are disappointed while getting prescriptions filled and likes to get some on sale items, but they find the shelves empty 85% of the time.

    Theranos is opening in all Walgreens. Currently in Palo Alto only. This is a game-changer. Blood tests at 1/4 the cost of a lab? Results in 4 hours? The Board is Henry Kissinger, George Schultz, etc? CEO just made cover of Fortune and she is amazing.

     

    Stanofrd just built them a massive HQ right next to HP on Page Mill Rd here in Palo Alto.

     

    Ignore WAG at your own risk. Things are going to change.
