It is struggle to gain a significant foothold in the New York metropolitan market.Walgreen officials say acquiring the Duane Reade Chain and its 257 stores allows Walgreen to do all it wants what would’ve taken years to do by growing more organically in New York. The billion dollar plus deal will more than quadruple the number of stores Walgreen has in the New York area and give the nation’s largest Drugstore Chain considerable strength in Manhattan where most of the Duane Reade Stores are concentrated. However, the Duane Reade Stores will keep their name after the sale closes. As Walgreen officials say they will take some time to decide how to best integrate the two brands. David Schaper, NPR News, Chicago.
