I shop at my neighborhood Walgreens on a regularly basis. I get my prescriptions filled there and even convinced my parents to switch from CVS. This weekend I went in looking for hair color and was very disappointed to find out that this store does not carry hair color for women of color. I was picking up a prescription and thought I could pick up my hair color at the same time. I had to go down the street to Walmart to make my purchase. On line I noticed that other Walgreens do carry these products, but only in the stores located in the "inner city ". This was very disturbing to me. Women of ALL ethnicities shop at this local Walgreens, not just white women! I should be able to pick up items that are relatively to my needs just as easy as white women and not have to drive down the road or to another walgreens 15 mins away. If I have to leave Walgreens to go to Walmart to purchase items that others can readily buy that's geared to them, I should just move my prescriptions and my entire family's prescriptions to Walmart. This was very disheartening and I hope that Walgreens will change this SOON. My local Walgreens is at 9209 Mansfield Rd, Shreveport, LA 71118.
Very loyal but disappointed customer
