Walgreens: The silliest reason possible for wanting to sell wine and beer

Posted By on Sat, Mar 13, 2010 at 10:58 AM

Walgreens in Fayetteville wants to be able to sell wine and beer to its Fayetteville customers. The reason, according a spokesperson from the drugstore chain, is that this is all in response to customer demands for “one-stop shopping.”

Say what?

The fact that anyone from Walgreens could even think of uttering such a phrase with a straight face may be cause for some serious drug-testing (which I am usually adamantly opposed to) at upper levels of management.

One-stop shopping? At Walgreens?

You can’t even get one-stop shopping at IGA, Wal-Mart, or Harps, for crying out loud.

Walgreens?

Fayetteville police chief Greg Tabor sent a letter of opposition, as did State Senator Sue Madison.  Based on Tabor’s opposition, the request was denied, but Walgreen’s will have chance to appeal in June.

I kind of hope that Walgreens sticks to their guns, and stays with the “one-stop shopping” line. Of course, that also means that I hope somebody in the room laughs out loud when they try to trot it out.
