Walgreens Pharmacy Hours

Walgreens pharmacies typically have the same hours as the store, although they sometimes open one hour later and close one hour earlier. For example, if a Walgreens location opens at 8 a.m., the pharmacy might not open until 9 a.m. and it might close at 11 p.m. instead of 12 a.m. like the rest of the store.

Walgreens Flu Shot Hours

Customers are able to receive a flu shot during any of the hours the pharmacy is open at a specific location. Thus, if the nearest store to you has a pharmacy that is open from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., you can walk in and receive a flu shot within those hours. You can also schedule an appointment in advance if you prefer, by going to the Walgreens flu shot page and clicking on “Schedule vaccine.”

Customers are able to pick up or drop off packages at any Walgreens location during normal store hours, so if your nearest Walgreens location is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., you can complete the pickup or dropoff during that time.

It is best to look up the liquor laws in your state or call your nearest Walgreens location before visiting the store to purchase liquor.
