Three Things You Might Not Have Known You Can Get At Your Local Drugstore

Posted on

Most people only visit a drugstore when they have something urgent that they need, such as a prescription for medication they regularly take or maybe some bandages to clean up a small cut they might have. It is not really a store or environment that many people spend a lot of time in, which is a bit of a shame when you consider just how many different products are sold and stocked at most drugstores. If you have never spent more than a couple of minutes in one, then here are a few things that you might be missing out on which could save you a lot of time and money.

COVID-19 Vaccine

Many different drugstores all across the country are offering COVID-19 vaccines including all the approved options. You can also get your booster shot there if you need to and are eligible. Most of the time these vaccines are free, but you should always check up to see what your local drugstore policy is before heading in. Also, it is important to note that you will have to wait about 15 or so minutes after you have been given the vaccine just so they can monitor you, but that is normal and would apply wherever you get your vaccine.

Discounts On Perfume And Colognes

A lot of people forget that you can get a lot of designer fragrances at your local drugstore and you do not have to go to a high-end department store. In fact, often those high-end department stores will charge more because they can, while a drugstore is trying to move products quickly and will frequently have discounts. While it might not be a huge discount, especially for more expensive perfumes and colognes, the money saved plus the convenience of being right near you often make it a better place to go to get your next fragrance.

Presents In A Pinch

Drugstores are often open later than other options so if you need to get a last-minute present or a little something to make up for a mistake you made then they are a lifesaver. Most drugstores will sell quite a good range of luxurious chocolate as well as all your favorite candy. You can find cards, books, small pieces of jewelry and so much more. Perhaps even spoil them with some luxurious skin creams or nice smelling soaps that they would never normally buy for themselves.
