Digital Disruption Innovation Summit offers Walgreens online strategy suggestions

By Seth Mendelson - 04/11/2018
More than 150 manufacturers joined more than five dozen Walgreens executives and buyers at the Digital Disruption Innovation Summit in Schaumburg, Ill. to discuss opportunities to help the drug store chain continue to build its online digital business.

The executives met at the one-day conference, presented by Drug Store News and Mack Elevation, to learn more about what is happening in the digital arena and to develop approaches together to help build sales in that space, while still maintaining a strong brick-and-mortar approach.

“This is not a moment to panic, but it is a moment to be prepared,” said Joe Hartsig, senior vice president and chief merchandising officer for Walgreens as he discussed the company’s digital strategies. “We are doing a lot of work in this arena and we are running fast. But we are also humbled because we know we can do so much more.”

DSN publisher Eric Savitch added: “It is an honor for DSN to be involved, along with Dan Mack and Mack Elevation, to bring these suppliers together with key Walgreens officials. We are proud to be the conduit that helps all these players learn more about each other and what they can do to help build digital sales today and in the future.”
