Good afternoon! I just noticed that a Walgrees in being built in my area. Walgreens is new to our area. I do local merchandising for other retail/drug stores and was wondering if anyone knows of any merchandising companies that do work in there stores? Thank you in advance!

I know that Crossmark does. Contact the companies that you work for in other drug stores and let them know you want work in the new store.

Thank you for your reply on Crossmark. I have not had much success with any other merchandising companies. Does anyone eles know of any other companies? The Walgreens is set to open up in a few weeks.

Thank you in advance!

Hi Traci,
I work for several companies and the ones that do work in Walgreen are Procter & Gamble and Crossmark. I am sure thtat there are more, any of the cosmetic companies that sell to Walgreens, which is all similar to CVS or WalMart will need a rep.
Good Luck...

Dont forget the magazine companies. I work for Hudson RPM in Mass. and they do magazines and paperback books in Walgreens. You could call any Walgreens in your area and ask who the magazine vendor is and try them

Depending on how friendly your area Walgreens is -- just go in and ask the cashier. That's usually where the vendors have to sign in, at least in my areas. Just go in when they aren't very busy.

I'm an assistant manager at Walgreens in Texas. Truthfully, we have very few merchandising vendors. We have a company do our DVDs/VHSs and one does the SmartSource coupon machines. We do all cosmetic resets ourselves and most of our vendors are full time positions (ie Frito Lay, Coke, Wonder Bread, etc). I've also had a merchandiser come in for Russell Stover and Nestle, but that's all I can think of. That here in Texas. We dont have a vendor sign in, btw.

I did a couple of 1 time assignments for CMS at Walgreen's.Having worked in the 2 (many miles apart) and shopping in them including out of state I can say they are a cut above the others.They are not in the same category as CVS & Eckerd's which I have worked and shopped in many as well.There stockrooms are neat as a pen like the store and well organized the management was helpful.I would gladly work in their stores.

Are Levy Home Interainment ant Chas Levy different Companies? I saw an advertisement for Walgreen DVDs that I used to do for another company. I sent an email and it was forwarded to Chas Levy.
The previous company arranged the DVDs by titles and it was very time consumming. I couldn't learn how to work their Web Site. I had to quit. They haven't had any one since.

Hallmark cards are sold there but I know in my case,becase I asked the lady doing the cards...She was actually a Walgreen's employee doing the cards. I guess Hallmark paid Walgreen's to do it.
