Walgreens unveils new store with innovative security measures to prevent theft.

Revamped Walgreens Store Offers Unique Shopping Experience

Step into the future of shopping with Walgreens’ redesigned store in downtown Chicago. The store features only two aisles of “essentials” that are easily accessible to customers. If you need anything else, simply order it from a kiosk and pick it up from the counter. The store’s sign encourages shoppers to “relax while we shop for you,” making shopping a stress-free experience.

Until Piggly Wiggly opened the first self-service grocery store in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1916, shoppers would provide a list of desired items to a clerk, who would gather the items from wherever they were located in the store.

Welcome back to the future.

While the company claims that the changes are aimed at “customer service,” it’s clear that loss mitigation was a more important factor in the redesign. The store has been labeled an “anti-theft” store by CWBChicago.

Walgreens has caused a stir by unveiling a new “anti-theft” store with radical new security measures. The company is testing a new experience at one of its stores in Chicago, with new concepts, technologies, and practices to enhance the experiences of its customers and team members.

The new system requires customers to order most items digitally, and a worker has to shop for them. Only two aisles are available for customers to shop, and two employees will watch them. The CWBChicago tried out the new system and was almost overcharged for a bottle of Coke. It took two store employees to correct the problem.

Reactions to the new store online were not generally positive. Some people criticized the new system, saying it was inconvenient, especially for seniors and disabled people. Others blamed liberal soft-oncrime policies for the need for such security measures.

The company may want to think about opening similar stores in crime-ridden San Francisco, where a woman was arrested during a traffic stop after more than $1,000 worth of products shoplifted from a local Walgreens location were found in her car, according to KRON. The woman, 33-year-old Latisha Vandycke, was charged with “shoplifting and other theft-related charges.”
