Poor selection, mediocre prices, ignorant workers. There's really not much that redeems the place. They could make up for it if the employees were knowledgeable about the products they're selling but the ones I've encountered are generally clueless about wine and liquor in general. Go to a REAL liquor store, not some tacked on retail chain crap, if you want to find helpful employees.

Sad that you have to cross the river and go to Buster's if you want selection. Or any other upscale small shop if you want knowledge.

Everyone knows this is a self service liquor store. You should know what you want when you go in or at least know ABOUT what you want. Walgreens doesn't pay for wine training. Go online if you need knowledge or buy different things and educate yourself.

Every time I've gone in the workers are always helpful. They may not be properly trained but they do the best that they can.

I certainly hope you don't think that employees know what everything in a liquor store tastes like. That does not even make sense. As the other poster stated, you should know or at least have a good idea what you want when you go in a liquor store.

Walgreens has the best prices in town. Plus I can get my meds at the same time.

Walgreens is supposed to be a state appointed distributor. All of the bars are forced to buy from them. They have recently discontinued sever staple items that it takes to run a bar. They now have a 24 year old clueless girl making decision as to what they need to stock in their store. I have found that the major things that I need are not there anymore and I have to go to other liquor stores to buy them. This means that I cannot claim it on my taxes without a receipt from Walgreens. They do not carry many mixers either and now I have to have a grocery store order them for me. What are they thinking. I find that their help is clueless and are very dry in personality. They are not friendly at all. They never smile or greet you in a friendly manner. Especially the white girl with long hair. She always looks like she is miserable and just doesn't want to be there. I hate to go there and I always get in and out as quick as possible and always leave with an unpleasant experience. They need to hire some new faces with real personalities. The black girls are always cackling and are very unaware of what is going on around them. They give the impression that it is a burden to wait on you. If they would just once say,"hello, how are you doing today", I would probably have a heart attack. Typical West Memphis behavior.

Not asking for the minimum wage idiots to know what everything tastes like. But they should know the difference between bourbon and scotch and blended whiskey, between 100% agave tequila and Jose Cuervo Gold, when a white wine is appropriate vs when a red wine is appropriate, the difference between liquor and liqueur, which booze has neutral grain spirits and which ones are the real deal. And if they can't wrap their neanderthal minds around these simple concepts, these fundamental elements of alcoholic beverages, at least know what your store carries. Know if you've stopped stocking an item or if it's just temporarily out of stock. These fools they have working there are useless beyond belief. Replace them all with a self checkout like they have at Kroger. All these idiot employees are there for is to card people. Otherwise they are completely useless and not deserving of the minimum wage they "earn".
As for the fat white girl with the bad teeth and the long hair, she's the main reason I quit going there. Leave me alone. Always asking me if me and my girlfriend are still together. None of your business you brown toothed underachiever.

But hey! Fattie if you want some lovin, I will be there for you. Just don't tell my girlfriend and I won't also. We will get some Jose Cuervo and get wasted and I will be good to give you a good f'ing. "Chubbies" need loving to.

I am in Walgreens about twice a week and the employees have been nothing but nice to me. True they might not know everything, but they always try their best to help you. I think you guys are just looking for a reason to complain. They've always greeted me with a smile and even have simple conversation.

Like I said, if you're respectful to them, they return the favor. Golden Rule!!!!

It is a self serve type of liquor store. This is the type of store you go in knowing what you want. The workers are there to check ID's and run the registers. Nothing more nothing less. However they could smile and properly speak more. And like what was said above..typical West Memphian attitude.
