Walgreens plans large Downtown Crossing store
The drugstore chain will convert former Borders bookstore in Downtown Crossing into an emporium with a wide range of merchandise
Fresh hand-rolled sushi. A juice bar with made-to-order smoothies. A hair and nail salon. It’s certainly not a typical drug store. But these are among the amenities that Walgreens will offer in the former Borders space when it debuts a 24,000 square foot flagship this fall in Downtown Crossing. The Illinois drugstore chain will model the Boston location after two flagships it recently opened in New York City and Chicago.
