This week marks the opening of the newest Walgreens store in DC, located in Chinatown! To kickoff the grand opening of this “flagship” store, from March 17 – March 22 Walgreens has a mobile tasting tour stopped in DC, handing out free samples of some of their fresh & flavorful new products. The new store features an extensive collection of innovative fresh food offerings, products and services you wouldn’t expect from a drugstore. Plus I have a great giveaway… so keep reading!
The new Walgreens located on the Northeast corner of 7th and H Street, NW is set to open on Thursday, March 21st. The store will be one of the first in our area to feature “Up Market: Fresh” which includes fresh-made juices and smoothies such as the “China Town Chiller” a blend of fresh strawberries, agave and lemonade (yum!). You’ll also find premium, low-fat frozen yogurts and a cafe with french roasts and barista-quality beverages. Not your typical drugstore!
Plus, this week you can be one of the first Washingtonians to try the “Up Market:Fresh” taste from their 40-foot bus in DC! The tour’s daily locations &menu items are being tweeted by @UpMarketFresh, so be sure to follow them for the latest updates! They’re scheduled to be at 10th St. NW between F Street and G Street from 10am – 2 pm this Monday, March 18 – Friday, March 22, 2013.
You’ll be able to get free samples of fresh-made juices, smoothies, frozen yogurt, fresh brewed coffees and select specialty items. And this isn’t any “normal” food truck, you can actually step on board to receive your taste!
Plus, to celebrate the newest DC store opening and their Up Market: Fresh, Walgreens is kindly giving a $50 Walgreens gift card to 1 lucky Beltway Bargain Mom reader! *THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED* Congrats to Reagan H. who won!
