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.
Your path can be virtually unlimited, exploring a wide range of opportunities that continue to evolve as we further expand and reimagine our business. And with our merger with Alliance Boots, creating Walgreens Boots Alliance, we’ve evolved into an industry-leading global organization – with all the exciting opportunities and resources to match. And here at home, our domestic brand, Walgreens, is championing everyone’s right to be happy and healthy, with over 8,000 store locations in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
We’re a company of pharmacists, store team members, IT professionals, accountants, nurses and more. And each one of us shares a common goal – to make health and happiness simpler, easier, and within reach for everyone on a daily basis.
