Walgreens - One pharmacist during lunch hour with nobody else.

It's lunch and it's the only time I can run to the Walgreens to pick up my medication that I ordered the day before. There was one pharmacist taking care of drive-in customers. No one else was around. And this one pharmacist kept telling everyone waiting at the counter to form one line only because he's very busy. There were 5 people waiting including myself. The lady in front of the line said she's been there 15 minutes already, while only the drive-ins are being taken care of. What's the point of forming a line if no one there to help us. After 10 minutes, I gave up and left. The lady in front was on the *** of explosion. Cannot blame her. I know everybody's got to eat. But they have to know also that that's when customers have time to come in. And why is drive-in customers more important than the one waiting at the counter. Going to transfer my prescription of the small local pharmacist as soon as possible.

Today people are trained they shouldn't have to wait for more than 5 minutes.They want whatever they want whenever they want. I agree he should not have been just helping drive but you have to give the guy a break.

could you help 15 customers, take phone calls, answer questions, count pills for the 50 prescriptions you have to fill, take in scripts from the 3 doctors you have on hold all by yourself? There have been hours cut from a lot of pharmacies

Big deal, so she was waiting 15 minutes already and you gave up after 10. This is all it takes to get you 'pissed' Must have been blood pressure pills.

small local pharmacist are the best. I love my local pharmacy they will order anything that is needed if they don't have it and my insurance would pay either the same.

Walgreens - Wouldn't allow me to buy my own Christmas photo cards

DO NOT PRINT PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS AT WALGREENS...My friend who is a professional photographer took some pics of my family as a friend, not a job, and the photo department would not let me buy my own Christmas cards without a signed affidavit from a lawyer that I had the rights to print my own pictures. So I called by friend and she said, she had never heard of this, and anyway if you have the pictures, and there is no watermark, you have the right to print whenever. Walgreens refused to let me buy my cards on no principle but to be jerks. My friend said don't go to Walgreens anyway, go to Costco or Sam's, they're equipment is much better and the quality of prints will be better.

Ever hear of copyright laws? Store can be sued by photographer unless you can produce a copyright release from the photographer.

If her name was anyplace on the photo, including the back any business needs an OK of some kind to make copies. If her name is on the back, buy some photo paper and print them on your printer.

Walgreens, has decided that they should do data mining through a members only sales program. I thought that Walgreens was a store open to the PUBLIC, not a membership only retailer. I moved my prescription(s) from walgreens, and will not shop at another walgreens ever...

I used to work at one and all the pharamacists had perscription drugs actually a pretty large amount like morphine nasel spray just for stress headaches.also when the drug reps would come in the pharmacist would have 2 large paper bags full of perscription drugs to take home and most were pain drugs.

Walgreens - I was tring to return a walgreen high blood pressure

no one will give me store credit act like it was stolen the high blood pressure I brought it but I lost my receipt.I pay 16.99 and find a store and they gave me 9.00. I feel that is wrong. Treating me like i'm a thief.Everybody don't steal. I feel that cause i'm black I get treated that way.I work hard for my money and I just want to be treated with respect.Just learn how to treat people. And you can get better customers.Stop stealing from your customers and maybe they want steal from you

I noticed you didn't bother mentioning how long you had the bp cuff before you tried to return it. I'm going on a limb here, but I'm betting if it was originally $16.99 and they gave you $9.00, you had the cuff for a good while.

I won't even bother about your "race" complaint because the other comments summed it up nicely. :grin

Let me see now...No one will give you the store credit to act like it was stolen and you bought yourself some high blood pressure. Well done!

:grin Then you pay 16.99 instead of $16.99? Which currency was that you used? Because here, we us a dollar sign to refer to a monetary figure when writing. They gave you 9.00?

Was that am or pm? And you say "stop stealing from your customers and maybe they WANT steal from you?" Nice! So, are you justifying theft because a company follows it's own policies? "Treating me like i'm a thief.Everybody don't steal." Ooh, nicely put and I celebrate your usage of punctuation.

:roll Perhaps if you conducted yourself as an intelligent individual worthy of respect simply because you're a human being instead of playing the race card, you might get somewhere. :?

You may not steal but obviously judging from your review you are not only uneducated(bad spelling and grammar) but careless. You lost the receipt, you were irresponsible so you have no reason to complain.

"I feel that cause i'm black I get treated that way."

Quit playing the race card, it is not because you are BLACK. A white person can get the same treatment without a receipt. You just wanted special treatment, and because you did not get special treatment you play the race card. It is no wonder when racism really does exist the victim is not believed. It is not that they should learn how to treat people. You need to grow up and learn to be responsible and to stop playing the race card when people follow procedures and policies. If they don't break them for you it is because you are black. You seem to think you should get special treatment just because you are black because it is easy to play the race card when you don't. Well getting special treatment is also discriminating only you don't call it for what it is because it benefits you.

GROW UP.

I bet when a cop pulls you over for speeding it is because you are black, I bet when a teacher gives you a bad grade it is because you are black. Ect.

Actually this was for the person who posted as "Grow Up Black Person" as I think they hit the nail on the head with their post to this misguided, angry, illiterate complainer. :)

Without a receipt, it is Walgreens policy that you are to receive store credit at the lowest advertised price if the item had been bought at that specific Walgreens store in the past 30 days.

This is applied to everyone, not just people who pull the race card whom end up being the racist themselves. Also, Walgreens is also given right to refuse any return.

Here's the deal with recipts. They kind of prove you bought it and how much you paid for it.

If the item is on sale when you try and return it, that's how much you'll get back. It's not the stores problem you lost it. You're lucky they'll even give you a store credit.

Don't pull the race card. It makes you look foolish.

That's right play the race card. If the item went on sale after you bought it you would only get the sale price back, because you didn't have the receipt.

I've been on a low dosage of pain medications post-surgery for bone cancer. I have one local doctor who prescribes them my insurance and doctor allows me to fill them a few days early for convenience. This month I was informed they won't fill it until the 31st day....

"@big mouthed rebelchick hope you have a child that gets cancer"

Wow. How immature.

You must not have ever had cancer........why would ANYONE.........ever ever wish that on anyone else? Why would any one ever wish to someone to have to watch their child suffer? If it is the law its the law.

You cannot get out of a drunk driving just by saying it's your birthday or you had a rough day. You can't rape someone "cause they were hot" They are there for a reason

sorry to say but doctors make mistakes too. The pharmacy is the middle man between the doc and and the ins.

They get alot of "he said she said" stuff. "Doc wants this strength but ins wants this one" happens all the time.

Are you sure your md was even in the office the day before a holiday? Ha......good one.

Oh please! Here we go with the race card.

No one cares what color your skin is! White Strips are extremely expensive and a high end item. If they don't know you, if you're carrying a large bag or even another shopping bag, you're going to be watched. They don't have a crystal ball that says "THIS IS A PAYING CUSTOMER.

HE WILL BUY WHITE STRIPS AND HEMORRHOID MEDICATION AND THEN HE WILL STOP AT WENDY'S FOR THE BACONATOR COMBO".

GOD, GROW THE *** UP AND STOP WHINING. :roll
