From the Paper:

"When entering into a new market, it is important for a company to have a Marketing Communication Plan in place. This is a promotional plan in which the marketing communications are integrated, or uniform, throughout. An integrated plan is necessary for Walgreens to ensure a "single message is conveyed by all marketing communications" (Marketing Teacher LTD, 2000), which will eliminate customer confusion and reinforce the company's primary messages. The perceptions of value and accessibility given by Walgreens needs to remain constant in all markets, which can be achieved by adapting the plan to integrate local customs and cultural norms."
