Boycott of the Week: Walgreens

Perhaps you'll want to choose another drugstore chain, since one is as good as another anyway.

If you have to go, I'd advise not drinking too much coffee before you do. I would definitely keep your teenage daughters out of there.

The second-largest pharmacy store chain in the U.S. (CVS is largest) calls its policy “Transgender Inclusion.” It defines “gender identity” as one’s “deeply-felt sense” of one’s gender, regardless of that person’s “sex assigned at birth.”

The response to Target’s pro-transgender policy was swift and devastating. A massive boycott (#BoycottTarget, #FlushTarget) ensued, spearheaded by an online petition against the Target move.  An estimated 1.5 million people signed the petition.

By May 2017, corporate stock plummeted $31.73 a share, from $87.50 to $55.77 – a nearly forty percent drop.  “Target lost billions in revenue after millions of customers stopped shopping at Target’s retail outlets,” Breitbart reported.
