Shop around for your Rx

I had no idea that prescription prices could vary so much:

At a Walgreens in Northwest Austin, the generic Zocor costs $64.99. At the Apothecary Shop less than a quarter mile away, the same drug is $18.

Walgreens explains the difference in the level of service.

“Low prices don’t do you any good if the pharmacy isn’t open when you need it,” a company spokesman said in a statement.

Well, all that means is visit Walgreens if it’s an emergency, otherwise, shop around for the best deal. It’s awesome when you can support local, small businesses and get a better deal. Plus I just like anachronistically named establishments.
