Walgreens opened its 10th flagship store in the world and first in Northern California this week right in the heart of Union Square on Powell St. Why get excited about a Walgreens? Besides the fact that it’s 18,000 square feet of beauty, bath, home, health and other products and open from 7:00 am to midnight every day, we’ve assembled our top 10 reasons to check it out: 


A Killer Bath & Beauty Selection – Walgreens has partnered with leading UK brand Boots to provide an absolutely stellar collection of skincare and beauty brands. The best part? All of their beauty advisors know every brand in and out, so they can help you find the perfect fit for your preferences, skin type and budget!

Believe it, there’s a Brow Bar – You can get your brows expertly tweezed, shaped and ready for a night on the town right in the cosmetics department. Ramy Eyebrow is a celeb tested method of tweezing (no waxing or threading for him) developed by Ramy for the perfect brows.


Tons and tons of Ghirardelli Chocolate – A wide selection of the hometown favorite will be available at the shop in a number of packages – great for a gift or just a little treat for yourself.

Lots of Fun Details like a Freestyle Soda Machine – What is that you say? It has over 130 varieties of Coca Cola sodas that you can mix and match – you know, if you’re into that kind of thing.
