Here’s a letter of praise I just wrote to Walgreens:
Hi there, I am a HUGE fan of Walgreens. The rebates, the employees, and the general Walgreens love. My comments here touch on these points, and I even offer some great ideas at the end of my comment. I would greatly appreciate it if you would take the time to read it over.
I LOVE how I can submit my rebates online via your website. It‚Äôs FANTASTIC how I can save my rebate savings until the end of the month in case I have more items you want to add, so you don‚Äôt have to mail multiple cards. Saving postage. NICE!
And then once I do get a card, I can just enter the card number online, and you will add the rebate savings onto your existing card. Saving plastic. NICE!
I was discussing this greatness with some friends, and we determined that we have a vast love for Walgreens. There is one across the street from our workplace in the Tribune Tower, and we frequent it often. The workers at the 430 N Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL location totally rock. I‚Äôd like to give a shout-out to my favorite Walgreens employee, Pilar. She is an extremely gracious and helpful person. She notices what I buy and makes friendly suggestions. She gets authentically happy when I save money and get great deals‚Äîwhich Walgreens always has tons of deals!
Then there‚Äôs the Walgreens just a couple blocks from my apartment. (the 4801 Lincoln, Chicago, IL location) The workers there are also fantastic. It‚Äôs fun to talk with Chicagoans about their favorite Walgreens employees. We all have our favs. It‚Äôs true. Ask any Chicagoan, and they will tell you about a Walgreens employee that they always enjoy seeing.
Now here‚Äôs an idea for you. I‚Äôd love to see the Walgreens newsletter feature a different Walgreens employee every time.
In fact, let‚Äôs step it up a notch and offer Walgreens trading cards. Each card would feature a different Walgreens employee. And then you could mix in some bonus cards about the history of Walgreens, and maybe even a card with the Walgreens creed. Oh yeah, you know all about the Walgreens creed! Walgreens believes in laughing, not weeping. 🙂
C‚Äômon, you totally know you should create these trading cards. Imagine the publicity you‚Äôd get from this. It would very much show how Walgreens is good for the community and loves their employees.
If you want someone to help you design the cards, I‚Äôm a senior graphic designer with the Tribune, and I would be more than happy to offer my services free to you.
