walgreens vs cvs My customers always said " I love Walgreens because they have everything!!! I have heard this for Years! With 5000 items being clearanced out because of downsizing, I find myself saying sorry we used to carry that..Their are a lot of Walmarts in the area, so I fear we will lose to them. Our Pharmacy is strong, but...if they can make ONE stop, they will, somewhere else..People are frenzied these days...One too many stops..too many.
