For many years, the Walgreen's nearest me sold absolutely no booze. Being the spouse of somebody in recovery, that factor was a huge sigh of relief.
Then a few years ago, to my genuine dismay, I noticed the employees stacking "toxic waste" from wine, beer, and liquor (the worst). Yes I realize alcohol is everywhere and that it's really my husband's problem more than Walgreen's, however I am still disgusted. My husband doesn't drive for medical reasons and this Walgreen's is within walking distance. He has been sober for three years.
Not anymore. While I realize the store won't stop selling the gasoline on account of one person, others (who WORK there) have also expressed their dissatisfaction due to carrying booze. One employee once told me was going to quit if they brought alcohol back, and another employee said "booze just adds trouble". When I spoke with the GM (and later, corporate), they told me in short the booze was there to stay and they had to beat competition with CVS and other drugstores that sold it.
Who sells booze in a freaking pharmacy!!?? I have since transferred my prescriptions to be picked up at the hospital pharmacy. To continue to support THEM while they couldn't give a rat's *** about anyone else was hypocritical at best. At the Corner of Healthy and Happy??
HA! The only "Healthy and Happy" Walgreen's cares about is their revenue!
