Shopping at Walgreens tip
I went to Walgreens early Sunday morning to buy something in their newspaper flyer. My closest Walgreens manager told me that they did not receive that item so I asked him to call another store and ask. He called and found out that Walgreens now has a computer system that will tell him what stores received what items. Cool.
He was able to tell me that a nearby Walgreens had received 20 of my item. I immediately drove to that store and found what I was looking for. They only had one in the size I needed so I tracked down a salesperson who told me that they put everything out on Fridays and the others had sold.
Bottom line: Walgreens managers can search for an item you want from another store. Also, if your not busy on Friday afternoon just wander through Walgreens and check their newest flyer merchandise before everyone else. (No, I do not work or know anyone who works at Walgreens)
