B-Time with Beth Bierbower

Oct 13, 2020

Over the last several decades a large part of the pharmacy shelf and floor space has been dedicated to non-healthcare items – makeup, food, toys, candy and more.  However, in the last few years, several pharmacy retail chains have been slowly been reclaiming some of that shelf and floor space for health-related items and services.  Your local Walgreen’s is one store that is seeking to do even more to bring health products, services and care back to the local neighborhood. In 2014, Walgreens took full ownership of Boots a UK and Switzerland based pharmacy chain.  Since that time, the company has been focused on expanding its reach in healthcare.  With us today to share more about their strategy is Giovanni Monti, SVP of Healthcare Services for Walgreens Boots Alliance.
