I have been caught several times trying to pick up prescriptions to find the pharmacy closed for lunch. What a ridiculous idea.

It is not posted at the store or online. Here I am yet again having to take elderly relatives to do a pickup and I cannot plan the trip because I don't know when they will be closed - just that they will.

Walmart store does not answer the phone even though they are currently open. For myself, I refuse to buy anything else there as this fact is so annoying and, I have found when I buy something cheap it falls apart and the regular groceries are actually cheaper at my grocery stores anyway.

Product or Service Mentioned: Walmart Pharmacy Department.

Reason of review: Poor customer service.

Monetary Loss: $100.

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.

Walmart Pros: Variety of products.

Walmart Cons: Dirty store, Quality of items very low, Prices not as competitive as they used to be.

I call BS on this post. It’s clearly marked in every Walmart pharmacy.

Just because you didn’t see it doesn’t mean it didn’t exist. It’s posted clearly on their website. So how exactly is Walmart bad? They are giving their employees their state and federal mandated breaks.

Just because it doesn’t mesh with your schedule doesn’t make them bad. Having to WAIT does t make them bad. YOU making a completely false and fabricated post is wrong. You do realize that you are NOT anonymous online?

That a simple court order and every bit of your metadata can be used to track you down? Corporations such as Walmart are now actively going after those individuals who chose to lie online for personal gain. In this case you are attempting to blackmail Walmart to the tune of $100.00. That is what you claim is your damages from having to wait.

I wonder how fast you would retract your statements once their lawyer presents his claim of defamation. ~Durpa~


It isn't marked at the Walmart in my area. It just says open from 9a-7p and nothing about being closed for lunch.


I just went on the website and found it in two seconds. God forbid the pharmacist gets a lunch break right?

I'm sure you would be happy going without lunch all day too.

It's federal law.....pharmacist is on break, pharmacy is closed. And if this has happened many times, then you are obviously not the brightest bulb to keep going back at lunch time.


They should have more than one pharmacist on staff to prevent this from happening.


That is a good idea. However, there Has to be Money in the budget for this to happen in addition to paying the pharmacy techs.


I agree with you. The grocery store next to Wal-Mart often has items that are cheaper than at Wal-Mart, especially if it is part of the weekly sale. People shouldn't always just assume that Wal-Mart has the lowest prices because often they don't.


When a pharmacist is Not present, the pharmacy technicians can do very little when it is open to the public. For example, prescription medicines cannot be sold and no prescriptions can be dispensed and handed out to the public.

So that means you Cannot pick up any medications when the pharmacist is not present. So even if the pharmacy was open when the pharmacist was away having lunch, you could not pick up any medications.


When the pharmacist goes to lunch, the pharmacy Has to close. This is the law that Every pharmacist at Every pharmacy Has to follow.


I could understand your complaint if this was the first time it happened but you say this has happened several times. They have a sign posted at the pharmacy at my Walmart that says when they are closed for lunch every day.

When you finally got the 1st prescription you could have asked when they close for lunch and not go back at that time in the future. Did you stop to think that the phone wasn't answered because they were out to lunch?
