The pharmacy giant announced a big change to its pharmacy hours this week, saying customers won’t have to wait days or weeks for their medication to be delivered to their doorsteps.
The new policy is scheduled to take effect on July 1.
Walgros pharmacy hours are now open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a:m.
– 6 p.p.m, Saturday and Sunday.
This is a change that Walgreen CEO Ron Hagen says was needed to help the company attract more customers.
“We really felt like this is the right time to get this implemented,” Hagen said in a statement to ABC News.
“This is a win for our customers.”
Hagen also said that Walgreen is working on ways to offer additional pharmacy hours during busy periods.
The company said it will also make more adjustments to its website to make sure it is easy for customers to shop online.
Walgreen has been a big player in pharmacy distribution, with more than 6 million prescriptions filling its pharmacy shelves, according to the company.
