I’ve gone to the new Walgreens here in Covington, Kentucky about three or four times now. It’s pretty nice. The River City News did a decent story on its grand opening with lots of pictures.
The store is bigger, that awful dropped ceiling from the old location has been replaced by high ceilings and—believe it or not—the wheels on the shopping carts work. Thank god for small favors.
Of course Walgreens is still Walgreens. They’re still overpriced on just about everything. If you go around the middle of the week, they’re out of stock on a lot of food items and they’re still pushing that “Welcome to Walgreens!” greeting. Some things aren’t going to change.
It’s a longer walk for me to get there now and since I’m doing this anyway, I might as well walk a little farther to the Kroger Store, which is also on Madison, and pay less money. Actually, I’ve been doing this more and more and I’m seeing a lot of Walgreens “regulars” in Kroger now. I’m thinking great minds think alike.
