Finding the closest Walgreens
Sometimes we find ourselves in unfamiliar territory and in need of medication, maybe an aspirin for a migraine or a refill for your heart drugs. How do we go about finding the nearest Walgreens? Walgreens has a store locator on their website, and if you follow the steps in this guide, you should be at your closest branch within minutes.
1. In your search engine search for Walgreens and open the page that appears. Alternatively, type www.walgreens.com into the address bar and search.
2. On the home page, go to the upper right hand corner and click on the text “store locator”. This should open a new page.
3. On the new page you should find a page asking you to enter your zip code, city and state, address or intersection. Below this search box are options to refine your search, such as looking for a store that is open for 24 hours.
4. Type your location into the search box. For example type Minneapolis. Then refine your search if you deem it necessary, then click the enter button. This should open a new page.
5. The page that opens should have a list of the areas with Walgreens branches. Click the area that is closest to you. For example click Minneapolis, MN (Hennepin County).
6. A new list of all the Walgreens locations in your area should appear. Each store should have the address and contact number listed, and the services they offer.
