Walgreens gets it and is positioning for a much larger share of the food retailing dollar. At 4PM you may soon be picking up dinner on your way home from work at Walgreens.
From coast to coast you can now find fresh fruits and vegetables, salads, sushi , sandwiches and Heat-N-Eat meat loaf. In addition Walgreens spokesman Robert Elifinger stated “ Our San Francisco area customers are already buying a lot of food in our stores, and there are requests for more product offerings," fresh does sell best!
Walgreens' Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat fresh prepared food offering range from meats, wraps, soups, and sandwiches. Along with other on-the-go meal options, as well as convenient alternatives for tonight's meal according to Elifinger.
Today there are more and more of new points of fresh food distribution, that may well challenge many a legacy fresh food retailer including chain restaurants, grocery stores and convenience stores for market share.
