Here's some intelligence - straight from the field. We all know the top performing stores in Chicago - but do we know the top performing drugstores in Chicago? We found out yesterday via the tipline that the Walgreens on Belmont and Broadway famous for Maureen, the best darn cashier this city has ever seen is the top performing neighborhood Walgreens in the city right now. This is probably because of Maureen and come next month, business will only get better. Starting in June and lasting for about a month, the Lakeview landmark will begin a remodel. The remodel will feature an updated beauty department, have more ready-to-go food options and best of all, sell alcohol. [Racked Inbox]
