Duane Reade takes its name from the Company's first successful full-service drugstore,
which opened in 1960 on Broadway between Duane and Reade Streets in Manhattan.
(Yes, we know they don’t intersect…it makes for a better picture!)
Since then, Duane Reade has grown to become the most recognized drugstore chain
in metropolitan New York. Today, the Company operates over 250 stores in commercial
and residential neighborhoods throughout New York.
Duane Reade's conveniently located stores carry an extensive assortment of items,
including those from the pharmacy as well as vitamins, nutritional products, cosmetics,
greeting cards and photo processing.
The company has ranked as the fastest-growing drugstore chain in the industry, and
is number one in sales per square foot. Duane Reade completed its initial public
offering of common stock on February 10, 1998.
In 2010 Duane Reade became part of the Walgreens family of companies, the nation's largest drugstore chain with more than 8,000 stores in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
