Walmart - Pharmacy Hours?

4209 of 4458 Walmart Reviews

I have a sprained ankle and am in an Aircast. I needed a prescription filled to take down the swelling in my foot. I called Wal-Mart to see what time their pharmacy closed to which I was told 9pm.

I hobbled into Wal-Mart and found the pharmacy. It was 8:30pm on the dot. Upon approaching the window I made eye contact with the man behind the counter. I then stood there for about 5 minutes. Finally, the man said to me, "Hello, ma'am. We won't be able to fill your prescription. We close at 9pm." I asked him if he could please at least look at the prescription as it's a pretty common one. He said, "No, there's no way to fill it."

My question is this -- Why would you say you close at 9pm when apparently you close at 8:30pm? Why wouldn't the person who answered the phone when I called let me know that they wouldn't fill my prescription thereby saving me the painful walk in?

I'm sorry but this is going to be the last time I even think about going to Wal-Mart pharmacy. Poor customer service is inexcusable.

You don't seem bright, they don't close at 8:30 they close a 9 as they say, but they just do not accept prescriptions at the last minute. Next time go early and think logically like an adult

Do you expect any other business to take in more than they can do????? Do you take your car in 1/2 hr before closing and expect it done before closing? Do you walk into your Drs and expect them to see you with no appointment, 1/2 hr before closing. He wasn't closed, he was catching up from the busy day and knew how much he had left.
Plan ahead. Don't expect the world to rotate around you

Most Walmart RX employees are fools and liars. I have been getting my Oxy 30mg.filled there for 9 months and I go in to get it filled and this new pharmacy tech is Hispanic and a liar. I give it my script and she immediately says that they don't carry it. (She didn't say they were out but they didn't carry it) I told her she was a liar and I need to speak to somebody that tells the truth. A white RX tech came over and said she was new and got it wrong. I said BS that she lied about it and didn't look it up or even speak to the pharmacist. The white tech said they will have it ready in 30 minutes and if I wanted to wait. I went to the manager after getting it filled and really complained. The next month the liar was gone and my prescription was filled without any lies or drama. 'Nuff said !

It was probably a visiting pharmacist who made a mistake. Talking to the store manager does absolutely NOTHING. The pharmacy in a retail store is NOT controlled by the management or home office. It is controlled by the state. Only the State Department of Pharmacy can remove a pharmacist. Nuff said.

Your an ***, all the legal *** they have to do first and I know your job at McDonald's is fairly simple but their mistakes mean something. If you've never made over $8 an hour don't pretend you know what goes on in a professional job.

If that is all you think a pharmacist does then I sure do not want to get my pills from your pharmacy.

It takes time to fill a script, and if a licensed pharmacist is NOT present, the pharmacy is closed. That is the law! Bottom line is, if the pharmacist cannot get to your script before 9:00 PM, then it makes no sense for you to wait.

Walmaet buys the majority of products from China.
China pays women to get abortions.
Where do all the church goers go on Sunday? Thats right. Hipocrites!

I've had the same poor customer service at a local Walmart pharmacy. Some of the technicians have such poor customer service skills that they shouldn't work with customers on a daily basis. Please, leave the bad attitude out the door.

Most likely because they have good service, most of the time when a person mistakes being told no as bad service. You must be very young to mistake being told someone is wrong as him trolling.

That can also work both ways. A lot of customers could also leave their bad attitudes at the door as well.Many customers go in stores with haughty attitudes and treat the workers like *** and then think it is rude when the workers don't respond so kindly back. Remember the golden rule: treat others as you expect to be treated.

I have never been surrounded my such incompetence. Please explain to me why it is okay to talk about your personal life while asking a customer questions. Why is it okay to make someone wait over 45 minutes to look up one item on the computer. Either this pharmacy has an internet connection from the ice age or these people just simply cannot do their job. Pathetic.

It is just as rude to listen in on private conversations as it is to talk about your personal life at work. The only way you would know that the conversation was personal was if you listened in on something that does not involve you, in other words both you and the pharmacist have bad parents that did not teach you any better, or you ignored what you thought.
