Walgreens Opens First Hawaii Store

Deerfield, Ill., Walgreens opened its first Hawaii store, in Honolulu, on Thursday. It is the first of four Hawaii stores the company plans to open in the next year.

The others are in Kalihi and Kaneohe on Oahu and in Lahaina on Maui. The chain plans eventually to open as many as 30 stores in Hawaii.

The 9,000 -sq.-ft. store, which will be open 24 hours a day, is smaller than typical Walgreens stores.
