Though this plan might be good in principle,do you think it will make a bit difference to the company?The average store does about 1000 customers or so a day.Times that by 7800 stores...7.8 million customers a day so no matter what few do this,it wont be noticed.

If somehow all employees didn't purchase stuff on April 1st it WOULD send a message...even a blip on profits would show that the masses are amassing...The message would have to go viral though.

Count me in too. Thought it will just be a 'blip' as described by some, it will send a message. It will take some doing to get enough people in board. Just organizing on here won't cut it.

I started reading this forum 2 years ago. There would be 15 16 viewers tops. Now look at it. Amazing. Change is in the air. Good luck to everyone.

So let's not buy anything to send Walgreens a lesson. You people are dumb. This will never work. Most people who work for Walgreens are there for the paycheck and don't understand really what's going on. Of course prices are higher, you are paying for convenience. The same way you pay more at gas stations or movie theaters.

You have to know that cutting costs will only make our stock prices go higher! People know where all the good prices are, they only shop the circular anyway.
