Walgreens opened in 1901 when Charles Walgreen opened the first store in Chicago. As it grew with the community, Charles began inventing things like the malted milkshake and the first drugstore to provide its medications in child-safe containers. It now has 8,000 stores providing everything from nutritional products to groceries. Walgreens also offers photos, contacts, and prescription services.
Walgreens is one of the largest chains to offer an online vitamin store. This has helped it accumulate a very extensive selection and range of products. It has organized its products into 14 main categories which include: beauty, personal care, medicines & treatments, vitamins & supplements, and many other categories. As mentioned above, Walgreens can also take care of your prescription needs, contact lenses, and photos all on its website.
Each product includes a description of nutrients and ingredients of the item. Consumers receive a variety of information on all vitamins and supplements. It also includes the nutritional label along with reviews from other shoppers.
Some of the major health products available are:
Walgreens offers a competitive free shipping rate on its vitamin supplements. It offers free shipping to any orders that are $25 or more. It also offers free shipping on all gift card purchases. Its return policy is also beneficial for customers. It offers the standard returns up to 30 days after the purchase, but Walgreens also offers a guarantee on its products. If the customer is not fully satisfied they may return the unused portion for a full refund, including shipping and handling. This is one of the more generous return policies we have seen from vitamin stores.
There is an option for a rewards program at Walgreens. Balance Rewards is a program that requires consumers to signup but is free to join. As you buy, you earn points which will earn you rewards. Most items are worth 10 points per dollar, while some are worth more. Once 5,000 points are earned, $5 is awarded to the shopper. There is the possibility to earn up to $50 in rewards with 40,000 points. The website also offers live chat assistance at any time in English or Spanish. It provides the feature to keep items shipped to you at regular intervals, either every 30, 60, 90, 120, or 180 days. This is an easy option to select offered at every check out page.
The rewards program is not worth it unless a customer shops with Walgreens frequently. Customers can only receive $50 back in-store credit at a time. Anything over that in rewards will not be given to the customer.

Walgreens is so easy to find everything that you need from wellness and make up even candy and toys.
Walgreens always has the greatest vitamins and different brands to choose from.
I’ve used Walgreens for my vitamins before when my regular place wasn’t available. But Walgreens was great. They were very helpful and the checkout process was smooth. Their staff was very friendly.
I recently bought vitamins from Walgreens before I left for my humanitarian trip this summer. They were so helpful in making sure that I was choosing the right vitamins for me and they had a wide variety of options with ranging prices.
I like Walgreens because it’s a convenient vitamin store. It’s quick and easy to find items with the help of the staff and it’s neatly organized.
I like shopping at Walgreens because it's a great vitamin store. I can always find what I'm looking for.
I go to Walgreens all the time! It has great customer service. And they help you very quickly.
I love Walgreens. I have been getting my prescriptions filled at Walgreens for the past 25 years and have never had an issue regarding my medicine. If there’s ever been a question they have always called me or communicated with the doctor and have been very timely in getting my prescriptions filled. I would recommend Walgreens to anyone who needs their prescriptions filled.
When I went to Walgreens I was looking for some vitamins for the kids I nannied and when I finally found some, 5 bottles we’re expired. Most people might not check this detail but I do and so I grabbed all of them and told them. I hope they check food expiration dates as well.
Walgreens is a great drug store to find any medicine. I think for a drug store they have a good variety for different sicknesses. Highly recommend them!
Walgreens is a very good store. It has a great variety of medicine, food, snacks, and many other goods. Most of the employees are also very nice. :)
I don't go to Walgreens a ton but when I was researching supplements I could take that might help with my hair and have it grow more healthy, Walgreens had what I needed. I frequently use the photo center at Walgreens to print my family pictures. They always turn out great.
I go to Walgreens quite often when I need something fast. There's one super close to my house and they have a lot of my basic needs. They are a good, little corner store.
This has been a really good convenience store with a good range of vitamins, as well as a pharmacy. I have been able to find anything I need here, but usually only come here when they have promotional sales.
I Like purchasing vitamins at Walgreens because I can always go to the pharmacist and ask him questions about the vitamins and he will do his best to give me good information about the product.
We go here for all our pharmaceutical needs. Great place, always meet nice people.
I like the variety that they have and the quality has been good. I like being able to get other things while I am there.
I love Walgreens because of their pharmacy. They are very informative when when your items are ready for pickup and it’s very convenient
It's the Walmart of personal wellness. They MOSTLY get stuff right, but don't expect any additional frills.
A few months ago while traveling, our son broke his elbow and required surgery. I found myself at a Walgreens at 9:00 at night, getting his prescriptions filled. It had been a hard week. My mother in law had just died two days before, and we had her funeral the next day. And my son was in surgery, and at that point I felt like I was running on my last cylinder. What was amazing about Walgreens is how well they took care of me. They were helpful and quick with the prescriptions, and made sure I had everything I needed. There customer service was wonderful that night.
As far as drug stores go, Walgreens does have the products I need, but I've had some poor customer service there. Well, not necessarily poor but just lacking. Anytime I've been in search of an employee, I can never find one anywhere.
Great store to buy from and offers a wide variety of products. They offer a great warranty on your purchase, if you are not fully satisfied. They will return anything you have purchased no questions asked as long as you have a receipt with the item you are returning.
I go to Walgreens all the time for health products, prescriptions, and vitamins. They have a large selection at a great price and specific types for what I am looking for. My money goes a long way at Walgreens too, because they always have discounts and they are also always giving me the coupons I use.
My go to pharmacy and quick shop to run into. I can always find what I need at a decent price. I love that they have a reward program now too.
Walgreens is a great option to buy your vitamins and minerals from. They always have sales for buy one get one free. This makes them a lot less expensive than even most online retailers. Its also nice walk up and down the aisle and see exactly what you need.
Walgreens is the store that I’ll go into if I need to grab just a last-minute item. Otherwise you’ll end up paying way too much, and they don’t necessarily have everything you need.
Walgreens is pretty good for vitamins. They have a wide selection of multivitamins from One a Days for men and women either above or below the age of 50. They also carry those gummie vitamins that everyone seems to love.
I am not great at remembering prescriptions, but Walgreens make it so easy they have reminders and automatic refills! It’s awesome!
Walgreens is convenient, has good prices, a great selection, and helpful people that will steer me in the right direction.
We use Walgreens for all of our pharmacy needs. We like the convenience of the drive thru and the variety of products in their store.
I use Walgreens for all my prescriptions. It is one of the few places I can be certain has specific items I need in their store as well. I love being able to depend on a place for what I need!
Walgreens is where I get all of my drugs and vitamins and I have one near my house so it is perfect!
Been here many times and they have a great selection, good prices and very good customer service.
Walgreens is always fast and easy for me to get my prescriptions. The staff is always willing to help and fast to get me on my way.
I have a Walgreen right now to my apartment. It is a great convenience store for loads of things. I thought it would be rather expensive because of how small it is and the white variety of products, but the prices seem pretty competitive to other large retail or grocery stores.
I like going to Walgreens because whenever I need any medicine or something quickly, I can go there and find it easily without any problem.
Walgreens is a great option and is always super close and affordable.
love the Walgreens points system so helpful to getting coupons and discounts.
I have liked shopping at Walgreens because of the quality of products and the wide selection. They can be a little more expensive than other places, but worth if to get what I need.
I frequently shop at Walgreens for quick purchases. I appreciate their variety & convenience.
Walgreens always has the medicines I am looking for! I love that they even have things that girls can't live with out, like make-up, girl things, and others stuff.
Walgreens is never picked over and always has a great selection of what I need!
I've used the pharmacy at Walgreens a few times. Employees have always been helpful and the customer service was good. If I had questions about any of the medications, the staff was knowledgeable and informative.
I have gotten my prescriptions from Walgreens and wasnt super impressed. The staff rushed me and werent very friendly.
Awesome store and good place to go for pharmacy needs. Such a friendly staff.
I like walgreen but I for some reason they are always more expensive than walmart for the exact same product!
Good prices on everything. I would recommend it to people I know
Good to get what you need when you need it. I don't know that anybody would ever want to be here though. Also, prices are kind of high.
I have bought quite a few nutrition supplements from Walgreens. Their selection is always good and their price is fair. Their customer service is good too.
ii really like the store, it is clean and well organized. the wait time for prescription is my only complaint! i usually have to leave and return,
