Breitbart News is reporting that Google will close the Walgreens Drugstore in Oakland, California, which it had been operating for over 10 years.
The Walgreen location was located in the same building as Google’s San Francisco headquarters.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the Walgreen Drugstore has been a popular destination for Google employees and Google employees had a positive experience with the location, with employees praising it for its “great location, excellent service, and great food.”
The Chronicle notes that the Walgreens location is located in Oakland’s Financial District and “has been an important location for Google for a number of years.”
Google has long been a major player in the pharmaceutical industry.
It is currently one of the largest search engines in the world, with more than 4.5 billion users across its global service portfolio.
In the summer of 2016, Google announced it would be expanding its presence in Oakland by purchasing Whole Foods Market for $1.9 billion, a deal that was finalized earlier this year.
It also plans to build a “high-speed fiber optic network” to connect its Google Fiber service to its Fiber service in San Francisco.
