I was waiting on some photos at Walgreens in Gretna yesterday and figured I’d kill some time by heading on over to Casey Jones (the best family-owned supermarket on the West Bank) and getting a 12-pack. When I returned to Walgreens the photos still weren’t ready so I figured I would kinda hang around the pharmacy and try to figure out who was getting what ‘scripts. Birth control pills? Lipitor? Purple Drank? Then I saw some beer and wine and was like WTF?
Sure as shit. The free market has decided and the vices have won!

The new Walgreens also will have fewer impulse items, such as Chia Pets
