National chain drug store sets up shop in Wallingford
Walgreens opens on the corner of 45th & Stone Way
After months of anticipation a new drug store has opened up in the Wallingford Plaza on the corner of 45th and Stone Way across from Archie McPhee’s.
For weeks my family and I have been walking by this location wondering what the new store would be like on the inside and today we were happily surprised to enter the new establishment and discover that it is nice little corner store with all the little things you need.
The first thing that caught my eye were the fresh bananas (3/$1) displayed in a three-tiered vertical basket stand next to the fresh produce refrigeration case. My son, Finnegan gravitated to the “As Seen On TV” section with the lollipop cupcake kit. He also found the toy section with an abundance of squishy balls, balloons, sidewalk chalk, summer toys and summer beach and grilling supplies.
My two favorite sections are beauty and photo. The beauty section is managed by makeup artist and beauty specialist Toni Majerus. Toni is a remarkable woman dedicated to helping women from all walks of life. She has put together a really great beauty bar featuring the latest health and beauty products to keep you looking your best. They have toothpaste and toothbrushes galor! 36 different kinds of eyelashes, nail products, facial and hair care products a 99 cent bin with a huge variety of hair fasteners and doo dads.
The Photo Print Bar is run by Travis. The process is pretty simple; you step up to the kiosk plug in your disc or thumb drive and start selecting images for printing. Once you make payment and scan the barcode on your receipt, the order is started and within minutes, the prints are ready.
The aisles are full of everything: soda and chips, hats and sunglasses, propane and grilling tools, nail polish and hair color. There are so many varieties of everything!
Tomorrow, Toni is hosting a SaturDate Beauty event featuring Yes to Cucumbers soothing skin products and Garnier Fructis Hair Care treatments. The public is invited to donate beauty products to benefit the ladies at New Beginnings Women’s Shelter in Seattle.
Stop in and say, “Hello” to our new neighbors and pick up a few things you forgot that you needed.
Walgreens business hours are 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. Monday -Sunday.
