What Time Does Your Favorite Drugstore Open?

1While I was in Sacramento on Sunday, Feb. 17th, I went to Rite Aid to get the newspaper, it was a little after 9am and the store was closed.Β  I looked at the signage for store hours and I noticed that the store didn’t open up until 10am on Sundays.

Now, I live in the city of San Diego and most of the drugstores around here (not the stores that are downtown) are opened 24 hours so I don’t know what I was thinking when I went to the Rite Aid in Sacramento at 9 in the morning.

It got me to wondering what time does your favorite drugstore opens?Β  Are your stores closed on Christmas or New Year’s Day or any other holiday?

    I don’t even know! I know when all of them close, though. πŸ™‚ It’s rare that I am out first thing in the morning getting deals.

      It’s rare that I don’t already have something planned to do besides to go Rite Aid so I like to go in the mornings so I have the rest of my day to do other things. πŸ™‚

    In my city I don’t even know the Rite Aid that is open 24/7. I do know the hours of CVS.And what ones are 24/7. Cvs opens by 7 closes at 10

    I am on the east coast, and I was surprised when I got out late on Sunday to find my store (whole store, not just pharmacy) closing at 6pm. Thought they were all open until at least 10 or 11pm. They also open at 10am on Sundays. Closed early Christmas Eve, Closed Christmas, Open New Year’s Day, Closed for bad weather (hurricane and snow).

      I guess in larger cities, the stores are open 24-7-365 but in smaller cities the stores have shorter hours.

    I think cvs,rite-aid and wags open at 9am and close at 10pm, weekends 10am to 8pm. The 24 hour rite aid is 6 miles away, 24hr wags is 7 or 8 miles and 24 hr cvs is 4 miles. I try to be superlocal when shopping to save on gas so within my area i have a choice of 2-3 rite aids, 2 cvs (maybe more) and 1 wags. There is a wags about 4 miles away that loves coupons so if I’m around there I’ll stop.
