This Is an Actual Walgreens Store in Chicago (PHOTOS)

When I went to Chicago this past weekend, mainly to see the Blackhawks play, HuffPost colleague Kim Bellware treated me to a tour of the most elaborate pharmacy store I've ever seen in my life. I'm sure you'll agree.

Meet... a Walgreens in Chicago. It's located at the old Noel State Bank building, as explained here, a 1919 construction that is also a registered Chicago Landmark. That's at 1601 North Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago.

You can tell it used to be a bank too. The pictures that follow speak for themselves. Enjoy.

Its vitamins are in a vault

Now is it necessary? That's debatable. But you have to admit it looks nice, eh?
