Walgreens E-Commerce Exec on Winning in a 'Wall-Less' Retail World

Walgreens has a major investment in real estate, operating over 7,800 stores. But in today's omnichannel environment, its most valuable assets may be in the realm of online real estate.

Miguel Almeida, Walgreens' vice president of eCommerce, is responsible for a portfolio of online stores that includes walgreens.com, drugstore.com, beauty.com and visiondirect.com. He will share strategies for omnichannel success at the NRF Big Show session, "Tearing Down the Walls: Winning in a 'Wall-Less' Retail World," Sunday, January 13 from 2-3 p.m. in the Javits Center Special Events Hall.

Almeida will be joined by two presenters from Kantar Retail: Bryan Gildenberg, chief knowledge officer, and vice president for retail insights Anne Zybowski. All three speakers will help retail attendees prepare a strategic vision for successfully operating in an omnichannel world that allows shoppers to stand in one store and simultaneously shop from another via their digital devices.
