In this Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012 photo, people pass the Walgreens store in New York's Times Square. Walgreen Co.'s fiscal first-quarter earnings sank nearly 26 percent as the nation's largest drugstore chain filled fewer prescriptions and absorbed costs tied to acquisitions and Superstorm Sandy. The Deerfield, Ill., company's performance fell short of Wall Street expectations, and the stock slipped Friday, Dec. 21, 2012, before markets opened. (AP Photo/Richard Drew)
