My father-in-law works for Walgreens. I wonder if this was his idea. Probably not, but I love him anyway.

Beginning today, Walgreens will launch the “Taylor Swift Store at Walgreens,” offering a wide array of products from Taylor Swift’s branded merchandise line.

Walgreens will provide a comprehensive, in-store selection of Taylor Swift music and merchandise.

The Taylor Swift branded merchandise will incorporate artwork from her soon to be released album, “Red.” Additionally, fans can be among the first to purchase the highly-anticipated new CD at any 24-hour Walgreens locations beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Oct. 22. There is at least one of those in Salt Lake City.

“I look forward to sharing my music and merchandise with my fans, and making it easier for them to pick up their favorite items when visiting Walgreens or Duane Reade stores,” said Taylor Swift in a release.

The Taylor Swift merchandise includes t-shirts, bracelets, backpacks, tour books, posters, journals, notebooks, calendars, and iPhone and iPad accessories among other items. Select merchandise will also be available through www.Walgreens.com and the Walgreens mobile app. nation's largest drugstore chain with fiscal 2012 sales of $72 billion, Walgreens
