Family of Pharmacies
Your local independent drug store is always your best choice. Consumer Reports has found this to be true for the past 14 years. Once again Consumer Reports’ latest survey of 43,739 customers rated drug stores nationwide for accuracy, speed and knowledge have found that independent drug stores are best, hands down. Once again they have found the big chains stores such as Walgreens, CVS, Kroger, Food City, Sam’s Club and Walmart at the bottom of the ratings. For details, check out our BLOG entry.
