Founded over a century ago in 1901, we have a rich and colorful history of continuous improvement and innovation at Walgreens. From inventing the world’s first chocolate malted milkshake to the creation of one of the most popular and sophisticated mobile applications in retail shopping today, we have transformed ourselves into a leader within the retail and drug industry.
In 2014, that deep history joined together with another long-standing organization, Europe’s Alliance Boots, to create the first global health and well-being retail drug organization – Walgreens Alliance Boots. Through this merger, we have extended our reach to more than 25 countries, employing more than 400,000 people and connected with the iconic beauty brand, No. 7 – thereby catapulting us into the next wave of top beauty trends.
