Walgreens now has hard liquor for sale—vodka, whiskey, gin, you name it. Of course the prices are kind of high, keep in mind this is Walgreens, but in case you can’t get to a regular liquor store, well there you go. I was tempted to buy a bottle of vodka to go along with the Ajax, but I decided not to.
When paying for the Ajax, I asked the clerk about the liquor.
“We used to sell it years ago,” she said, “but stopped. Now we’re selling it again along with beer.”
I thought to myself that the hell, they’ve been selling beer along with wine for a long time. That’s nothing new. Maybe I should have told the clerk that but decided against it.
I can’t help but wonder if these hard liquor sales will have an impact on those bus benches in front of Walgreens. You see a little bit of everything on those benches, including drunks.
Will people buy bottles of hard liquor and open them up while sitting in front of Walgreens waiting for the bus? Will these bus passengers be willing to share their beverage? Will drunken people have problems crossing the street or getting on and off the bus?
This will be interesting for me to see in the coming weeks. The cops might be interested in it too.
