I'm sorry, but every other pharmacy I've done business with in the past 50+ yrs, whether a small town pharmacy or CVS, Walgreen's, Target, etc, have always been able to staff their pharmacy with the proper amount of staff to be able to stay open without closing for lunch. I don't disagree that the pharmacists are entitled to a lunch break because they most certainly are (should be an hour, not 30 minutes in my opinion), but I believe with the amount of profit Walmart is making, they should treat their pharmacists with more respect, as well as the customer.
I presented to a Walmart pharmacy 30 minutes prior to their lunch break and was told they couldn't fill my script in that 30 minutes prior to lunch, so I would have to wait a full hour. Ordinarily, I would shop or come back later, but when you are sick as a dog and just want to get home and lie down, an hour can feel like a lifetime. Unfortunately for me, I have to take numerous medications (gross over $18,000/yr), and I will definitely be finding a new place to get my scripts from. I can't afford to risk this same issue time and again.
My point is, it's not about being a spoiled brat, but sometimes it's necessity to be able to get it and get home.
Remember, Walmart is a multi-billion dollar company, so in my opinion, they can afford to hire adequate numbers of pharmacists so they don't have to shut down for a lunch break. Just saying!!!!
