If you need help with the diet after your big Thanksgiving meal, Walgreens is going to open “Jenny Craig at Walgreens” centers at 100 Walgreens across the country. These locations will open starting in January 2020, and will include customized meal plans, meal deliveries, and one-on-one consultations. This is the first time Jenny Craig services have been available at a national drug store chain.

The 100 locations will open in Walgreens at 20 states around the country, including Dallas, Houston, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and more. All will open in January, and additional locations and online opportunities are also being considered. This is part of a neighborhood health initiative that Walgreens is starting to encourage healthy living. Select Walgreens also offer diagnostic lab-testing, urgent care, primary care, optical care, and more.

Of course, the Jenny Craig locations won’t be opening until January 2020, so you’ll have to wait a couple months after Thanksgiving before you can take part. But right after the holidays are over tends to be the perfect time to start a new healthy living initiative.
