The retail landscape is a sea of constant change, and right now Walgreens is preparing to make some major changes to their online retail front that will directly affect consumers. By September 30th Walgreens plans to close two major retail sites: Drugstore.com and Beauty.com, so they can focus on cultivating business with their flagship site, Walgreens.com.
As most of you know Drugstore.com and Beauty.com are partner stores of ours, along with Walgreens – so we felt it was important to address these changes directly to help UnFranchise Owners and Consumers discover alternative ways to get the items they traditionally ordered from these two stores.
First of all we value Walgreens as a partner store and understand a lot of the business decisions that ultimately forced them to make these major changes to their retail sites. You can read all about Walgreen’s online restructuring here on The Wall Street Journal.
We look forward to working with them in the future, and understand that our customers are interested in learning more about this shift in the retail landscape so they can navigate these changes and find the items they need while also maximizing their Shopping Annuity with Cashback and IBV.
While Drugstore.com and Beauty.com have been wildly popular partner stores for our UnFranchise Owners and customers, we want you to be aware of some additional stores that in many cases outperforms these sites in terms of Cashback and IBV.
Savvy UnFranchise Owners understand the value of ordering from our OneCart Stores, so we’ve assembled a great list of these stores for you, in an effort to help you locate the items that you previously used to buy from Drugstore.com and Beauty.com:
- SHOPCOM MarketPlace 15% IBV | 5% Cashback
- My First-Aid Company 6% IBV | 4% Cashback
- Beauty Bath and Beyond 6% IBV | 5% Cashback
- Unbeatable Sale 5% IBV | 4% Cashback
- The Online Drugstore 4% IBV | 4% Cashback
- Spectrum SuperStore 4% IBV | 2% Cashback
Can’t find it among our OneCart stores? We’ve also got some excellent affiliate stores that offer many of the same products at great values even though they aren’t currently OneCart stores:
We hope these two lists of stores will help you adjust for the coming closure of Drugstore.com and Beauty.com. Change is the only constant in the business world, but when you stay ahead of the curve you can prepare for any changes and even capitalize on the moment!
