I really like Walgreens because they are so convenient. Pretty much anywhere in town, there is a Walgreens near. In fact, we have 3 that are within a 5 mile radius of my house. Unfortunately, the prices seem to be getting higher lately. I recently noticed this glaring price issue with benadryl (Abbie needs it daily for her allergies). At Target, Wal-Mart, and HEB, the cost for name brand of Benadryl is about $10 for 100 tablets. If you want their store brand, your can get the same quantity for about $4. I checked the pricing at Walgreens and the name brand is about $17 and the store brand was $12. That is such a ridiculous price difference between. Needless to say, I did not buy my benadryl at Walgreens. I drove out of my way to go find a Target who had it in stock.
