Walgreens is the largest retail pharmacy chain in the country. In addition to its drugstores, it also operates worksite health centers, home care facilities, and its network of over 700 Take Care convenient retail clinics located inside select store locations. Walgreens is positioning itself similar to its main competitor CVS Caremark as a total health care provider, rather than just corner drugstores. The company is also a national leader across all industries in energy efficiency. Most recently, Walgreens opened what is believed to be the nation’s first net zero energy retail store, meaning it produces more or equal energy than it consumes.
