Fun Factory Converts To Walgreens Drugs

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.
