The Union Square area of San Francisco is a posh, trendy shopping location. Stores like Bloomingdales, Swarovski and Walgreens. Yes, Walgreens. The Walgreens in the Union Square location has served the communities basic drugstore needs in the past. Today the new Walgreens serves those needs but now its so much more!
Walgreens Is...FRESH FOOD! From gourmet smoothies to Fresh delivered bakery delicacies, the Walgreens UpMarket is all about catering to the upscale client. The UpMarket is the place to go weather you are looking for a healthy lunch option or just want to pick up a delightful rare cheese for a dinner at a friends condo. Walgreens is Fresh Food!
The first floor of Walgreens is impressive with rows of Ghirardelli chocolate and other specialty items created by local artisans. Ideal for those visiting who want a taste of San Francisco or those who treasure the authenticity of what San Francisco offers.
Walgreens is HEALTH! In a regular shopping trip it would be time to ascend to the second floor of the Walgreens. A little slice of ClassyBlackGirl heaven. As the escalator transports you to the second floor I promise you that there are little cherubs playing harps. To the right side you see the pharmacy area. Shelves lined with vitamins and self help remedies creates the a mixed feeling of a friendly doctors office and a trendy health food store. The pharmacies décor is muted and classical. There is a space for you to sit and wait. If your concerns need special private attention you have the option of going into a private room to discuss your health matters with a qualified health care professional. As health care costs are rising Walgreens is offering options to remain healthy with prevention as well as when the unexpected occurs.
Walgreens is BEAUTY! Using the cliché to save the best for last, would be far too light of a statement. The Look Boutique...OMG! With Brands like No. 7 and Vera Moore Cosmetics lining the shelves encouraging you to touch feel and sample everything! The Look Boutique is everybody's favorite drugstore meets an Upscale Department Store! Weather you have dry skin or simply desire to get perfect Red Lipstick for your date tonight-The Look Boutique is the spot! Awesomesauce Walgreens make-up and skin care experts serve you graciously without pushing "their product" on you.

Walgreens is...EVERYTHING! After spending a few days in the new and improved store I have come to the realization that Walgreens is Everything. Healthy food, delicious gourmet items, health care and beauty. I even saw body slimmers in the pantyhose section...Whut!!...The direction that Walgreens has taken in building out these specialty stores has fully impressed me and its NO surprise that I was back to visit when I was doing some shopping in Union Square just a few days after the opening!...Walgreens is Everything!
