When I go to Walgreens, it is usually to get a great deal on shampoo, or dish soap!!  I am also usually wearing either jeans and a t-shirt or even my flannel p.j's! 

This past Monday, Ben and I traveled to Cambridge to check out the new Walgreens there and their Well Connected section.  We both got dressed up in nice clothes for this trip!



One of the first things we saw when we entered the store was a huge movie section.  Newer releases too!  Plus our favorite part was that it is interactive.  You can click a button and see the trailer for each movie they sell.  When I go to the store and see movies I have never heard of on sale, I usually keep on walking.  Now at Walgreens I have the chance to see some of the movie before judging it!



Walgreens also has a huge electronics section.  With everything from no contract cell phones, to cell phone cases, to Monster headphones, to even Blu Ray and iPod speakers.  






The best part about the speakers is that you can test them out before you buy right in the store!  Bring your iPod and listen to your own tunes to make sure they sound great coming from the speakers.  I do not know of any other store that lets you do that!

Besides the Well Connected section, Walgreens also has a huge Beauty section called LOOK Boutique.  



Featuring brands like Pur Minerals, Pop, and Gosh Cosmetics, you have a wide variety to choose from.  Check out the tremendous section of nail polish alone!

The Look Boutique also has a higher end section of cosmetics with a variety of all natural and French made products.  



Another new feature to Walgreens is their updated pharmacy.  



Now instead of picking up your prescriptions and waiting to speak to a pharmacist, the pharmacist is the one who gives you the scripts so you can ask questions right away.  I also love the fact that most of the drugs are hidden and not visible.  To me it seems like a great safety move.  Out of sight, out of mind.

After our tour of the Walgreens we were given some tasty snacks, and drinks while we waited.  



Waited for what you may ask?  How about getting to meet Nick Cannon! 



Nick was there to help promote his and Monsters new Ncredible headphones.  With many styles and colors to choose from, I honestly can not pick my favorite!

Walgreens is really trying to modernize their stores and make them a one stop location for fresh foods, entertainment, beauty products and prescriptions.  From now on I might just be buying more then shampoo there!

This is unlike any other drugstore I've ever seen! This sounds like such a fun event and really looks like an indication of where Walgreens is headed in the future. #client
