    Now you will wait twice as long at their new drug stores for prescriptions….so you can SHOP!

    I’ve been there numerous times and their service seems to be equivalent to everyone else’s.

    Why, specifically, would you say that?

    This is not good news. Our local Kerr Drug give us excellent and personalize service. During my recently departed wife’s illness everyone in the pharmacy went out of their way to be sure she received the medication she needed. Wal-Mart here I come!

    I try and avoid using walmart pharmacy simply because they have lost literally lost my prescription from the the time I dropped it off until I go to pick it up. I have also had numerous times where they lost a call in prescription from a doctor.

    And this has what to do with the Walgreens pharmacy?

    Both start with “W-A-L”. If they both start with the same three letters, they’ve just go to be connected somehow.
