You can now pick up your packages at Walgreens.

Walgreen's has a new feature called Pick-up Zone.

Your first package is free, and additional ones are $0.99 each. Seems expensive (especially if you do a lot of mail order), but it's a safe place to have packages sent if you are not home very often.

I have even been home, when the postal service didn't drop off a notice until 2 days after they said it was sent back. Maybe it would be more secure at Walgreen's?

Chatham's own Walgreen's at 11 E. 75th is the only south side location east of the Dan Ryan to have this service.

For more information on PickUpZone, go to Walgreen's website.

It's a smart idea, and i wish other businesses, such as restaurants, would "pick up" on this.  If you're at the business all day, and someone can pick up packages, it would be a great way to lure customers in.  And as they give those packages, they can include flyers for specials on their business.
