Baby boomers spend more than $525 billion a year on healthcare and are responsible for 61 percent of all over-the-counter medication purchases according to a report published by The Resource for Marketing Executives. "Our 39 million members represent a large percentage of this group and our relationship with Walgreens will provide them with discounts and easier access to a wide variety of health-related products," said Adam Sohn, Associate Director, AARP Media Relations.

The Walgreens' products featured in the catalog include supplements, skin care and personal care products along with thousands of other products across multiple product categories such as vitamins and nutrition, health care, fitness and diet, beauty and spa, home medical, medical and nutrition, personal, sexual wellness, household, baby and children, electronics, food, toys, gifts and seasonal products.

Products purchased from the catalog or website are conveniently delivered directly to the member's home in the continental U.S. with free shipping for purchases over $50. All products include a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee. In addition, members can return or exchange items at any of Walgreens 6,000 locations.
