This may be old news to some of you, but I never officially announced that I am a Duane Reade VIP Blogger. For those of you who may not be familiar with Duane Reade, it is a Drugstore, similar to Walgreen’s. As a Duane Reade VIP blogger I hope to bring you tons of information about Duane Reade initiatives, as well as information on skin care, and health and beauty products.
Duane Reade is a NYC icon. As someone who was born and raised in NY, it was always the go to store for just about everything. Need laundry detergent, check, they have it. Need to fill a prescription, check, they have a pharmacists on staff. Need a beer, check, they sell beer too. They have just about everything you could ever need. Plus they have so many store locations. No matter where you are in NYC, a Duane Reade store is not far away.
Last month, I had the opportunity to meet up with some of the other VIP bloggers.
We all met up at Duane Reade’s headquarters for a meet and greet. We were treated to a light breakfast and learned more about the Duane Reade brand, their vision, and how we as VIP bloggers would fit in.
We were then whisked off to their Flagship store located at 40 Wall Street in NYC. Now this is not your average drugstore! This store location houses a nail bar, hair salon, sushi bar, smoothie bar and more! The store is beautiful! Don’t take my word for it, take a look at the pictures below.
