There’s been some concern about brands like Soap & Glory due to the fact that both drugstore.com and beauty.com are closing. As you already know Walgreens has made the decision to close the doors on both of these online stores. So, as of September 30th you’ll no longer be able to shop either location. I’ve expressed in my prior post that beauty.com isn’t a great loss for me as I didn’t shop there often but I will feel the loss of drugstore.com which I shopped at quite often. I really enjoyed drugstore.com because it was a place I could purchase some very unique beauty, skincare, and makeup items such as Thayers, Soap & Glory, etc…
Today I headed over to Walgreens during my lunch our to pick up some pens and I came across a Soap & Glory display right in the middle of the beauty aisle. Mind you, it was kind of stripped down BUT I was surprised and delighted to see it none the less. I already noticed that many items and brands are being migrated over to walgreens.com. But I don’t really shop Walgreen’s website very much. I’m actually hope the introduction of Soap & Glory in store also means we’ll be seeing other brands that were once available on both drugstore.com and beauty.com appear in stores.
I’m happy to see Soap & Glory at Walgreens as it makes it considerably easier to purchase versus heading to Ulta!
So, next time you’re at Walgreens check to see if Soap & Glory is making an appearance on their shelves.
I know I’m happy about this development if not still a little sad about the demise of drugstore.com.
