The Quiz: Alcohol sales helped what chain expand more than 2,500% in the ’20s?

McDonald’s
7-Eleven
Walgreens
Sears

Explanation : There were a few loopholes and exceptions for selling alcohol in the 1920s, including sacramental wines and medicinal alcohol, and Walgreens took great advantage. The chain expanded from 20 stores at the beginning of the decade to 525 by the end. The official company line gives credit for their growth to their milkshakes, but more likely, it was that patients could legally get one pint of alcohol from a pharmacy every 10 days.

Correct Answer: Walgreens
