Walgreens reportedly wants to go private, and KKR is said to be interested in buying it. The acquisition would almost certainly be the largest private takeover in history.Shares of Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) surged 6% in early trading Monday on the report. According to Bloomberg, KKR has approached Walgreens about a deal. The buyout firm KKR is one of the world's largest private equity firms, and its leveraged buyout of RJR Nabisco was cataloged in the book, "Barbarians at the Gate.""KKR" is the same vulture that fed on ToysRUs' corpse. Guess they're still hungry...
Welp, so much for Walgreens exclusives.

No shit, that was more likely to happen weeks ago when they lost their Toy Buyer who was behind the exclusives push.
And honestly, it might still happen because he's gone: it really can't be overstated that he was huge in getting all the exclusives Walgreens is now famous with figure collectors for. That being said, their availability around here varied from ludicrously common to impossible to find. I'm tired of having to hunt, and while I hate getting stuff with errors, it beats not finding something at all.
