Walgreens plans to sell fresh food in 400 stores

Walgreens customers soon may be able to knock several items off their to-do list without having to leave the store.

Pick up prescriptions - check! Go shopping for groceries - check!

Executives from the drugstore chain said, at the annual meeting in Chicago this week, they plan to add more fresh food to about 400 stores, according to Reuters.

Walgreens is targeting markets where access to produce and other goods can be hard-to-find. Across the chain, it's already selling a wider variety of food and household goods in an effort to reach shoppers looking for convenience.

The company's goal: to be a one-stop shop for healthy living.
