The spice of life

It’s amazing how the stock in Walgreens varies so much from store to store. Is it totally random? Do the managers decide stock based on demographics of shoppers? Or is it just whatever falls off the back on the Walgreens truck on that day?

I was down on 3rd Street today and stopped in the Walgreens at Bayview Plaza. I figured they’d have tons of food, since they’re the only game in town. Nope, no food. Very few clothes. But the socks and underwear were under lock and key! So were the lube and pregnancy tests. No condoms in sight.

The Walgreens at 3rd and Williams rocks! Lots of clothes, including designer fashion: Dickies shirts and jackets. But who’s going to buy a jacket for $49.99 at Walgreens? Not me, especially when the fabulous generic pleather ones go for $29.99. I spent so much time going through the stack of sweatshirts looking for smalls for my daughter that one of the Walgreens men asked me if I wanted any help. He went in the back and brought out a huge box of sweatshirts for me to ferret through. Love the pumpkin color. That Walgreens also sells canes and walkers and bathtub seats. Do they have lots of older customers?

And what do they have under lock and key at this Walgreens? Crest toothpaste. An entire case of Crest toothpaste products. But the plot thickens… all the Colgate toothpastes were out unguarded, for anyone to pick up. No lock on the socks, underwear or lube. I asked the friendly clerk about it, but he pretended to be as perplexed as I.

Oh, and on the way out I found these lovely Grillz candy, fake bling for my teeth.
