"The process of selling my files to Walgreens was very quick and easy, and I have the confidence that my patients are being well taken care of."

Greg Gelman
Former owner of Farmacia del Valle,
El Centro, CA

 

"I owned my pharmacy for 30 years. However, the day came where I needed to consider selling. It's not easy, but when the time comes, talk to Walgreens, they can help in many ways. Walgreens will do most of the work, and will help ease the transition for your patients."

Jim Zolman, Rph
Former owner of Orchard Pharmacy,
North Muskegon, MI

 

"Two years ago, I started to think about selling my pharmacy. I received offers from CVS, Rite Aid and several independents that did not appeal to my needs. So when Walgreens approached me I wasn't overly excited. However, throughout the negotiations and closing everyone from Walgreens I came into contact with seemed to understand that it was not easy for me, and made me feel at ease. I very much intend to stay part of Walgreens, as they have made me feel like a family member from day one."

Robert Caprioli, Rph
Former Owner of LaGrange Pharmacy,
Poughkeepsie, NY
