Walgreen Co., the biggest U.S. drugstore chain, agreed to buy Duane Reade Holdings Inc. from affiliates of Oak Hill Capital Partners for $1.08 billion, to expand in metropolitan New York.

We anticipate Walgreens to eventually include their existing Prescription Savings Club within the Duane Reade locations.  In the meantime, please continue to visit medtipster.com to search for your generic drugs and their discount prices at both chains nationwide.
