Fun Fac­tory Con­verts To Wal­greens Drugs

MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - EAST OAHU SPORTS -

Less than two months af­ter un­veil­ing its ren­o­vated flag­ship lo­ca­tion near Ala Moana Cen­ter, Wal­greens is on the verge of open­ing yet an­other store — this time, a lit­tle closer to home for East Oahu res­i­dents. Wal­greens at Mar­ket City marks its grand open­ing April 26 in the old Fun Fac­tory space.

The store will fea­ture Wal­greens’ “well ex­pe­ri­ence,” with an ac­ces­si­ble phar­ma­cist that can of­fer coun­sel­ing and ad­vice to pa­tients, as well as clin­i­cal ser­vices in­clud­ing im­mu­niza­tions and health tests.

Wal­greens also will sell beauty prod­ucts and other drug­store sta­ples, and fea­ture a Café W with pre­made sand­wiches, sal­ads and fruit.

The com­pany plans to com­mem­o­rate the open­ing by do­nat­ing $2,500 to Hawaii Coun­cil on Eco­nomic Ed­u­ca­tion.

Wal­greens is open 24 hours, and its phar­macy is open 7 a.m.-10 p.m. week­days and 9 a.m.-6 p.m. week­ends.

The Mar­ket City store will be one of 19 Wal­greens lo­ca­tions in Hawaii, though the com­pany has stated its in­ten­tion to op­er­ate be­tween 25-30 stores here even­tu­ally.
