Just got the email, and almost deleted it without looking. We only shop there occasionally, but I see deals for them now and then here on SD for non-drugstore related items too like radar detectors.
Subject of email for me was:
PLEASE READ: important change to our return policy
They weren't BS'ing. How about: Goodbye return policy - Suckers!

Just thought I would share for those like me who delete emails so much you may not notice. Hope my PSA is taken in the manner I intend - to help other SD'ers be informed of such a drastic change. I am ready for the crap fest now.
Attached is my email
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Now that's interesting. They must have forgotten to announce they are shutting down soon too in their email. Makes a lot more sense now.
Reps for the info.
Someone seller on the darkweb will be bidding on the drugstore domain soon.

Quite an interesting business decision. Seems like you could keep a second e-commerce website running for very little cost. I am sure they distribute through the same fulfillment centers anyway.

Walgreens have no clue just like Sears/Kmart/JCPenney and the rest from the last century.
