Charles R. Walgreen Sr.
Mr. Walgreen purchased his first store in June 1901 on the South Side of Chicago. By the time of his death in 1939, he had built the largest drugstore chain in America-493 stores. Customer service and innovation were key to his success. "Take care of customers," Mr. Walgreen told employees, "like guests in your own home."
