HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA.com) — A high-end Walgreens is coming to Hollywood.

The 24-hour store is replacing an old Borders at the corner of Sunset and Vine.

“We are thrilled to locate our milestone 8,000th store and latest flagship store at such a famous intersection as we bring a format unlike any traditional drugstore to the Hollywood community,” said Joe Magnacca, Walgreens president of daily living products and solutions.

It will feature a number of innovative products and services tailored specifically to Southern California clientele:

– Fresh sushi and sashimi prepared on site daily

– Smoothie bar

– Frozen yogurt dispensers

– High-end wine and cheese selection

– Fresh premium coffee and espressos, as well as iced and frozen options

The store will also feature a LOOK Boutique beauty department with specially trained beauty advisers and expert shaping and grooming services at the Eyebrow Bar, the company said.

The new Walgreens celebrates its grand opening Friday at 5 p.m. with a red carpet event.

The 23,500 square foot store opens to the public Saturday at 10 a.m.

Walgreens has also opened similar stores in Chicago and New York.
