business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Chicago Daily Herald reports that Walgreen is testing a new format that will not only add in-store medical clinics in select locations, but also cafes that will offer fountain drinks and snacks.

The company reportedly is testing the concept in about 100 of its almost 6,000 stores.
KC's View:
The café sounds more like an old-fashioned soda fountain than a coffee shop…which actually would be kind of cool.

They start selling egg creams, and I’m getting on line.
