Many of us are used to buying our supplements from medical or retail stores. Walgreens is a popular choice. There would not be anyone in America who will not be aware of Walgreens and why not who will not know the company which is largest drug retailer in the country.
Several of our readers have asked if buying Garcinia Cambogia from Walgreens a good choice. Well, to evaluate this we present key parameters which makes a store a great choice:
Choices available: How many brands of Garcinia Cambogia extract are available is an important aspect while considering a store. Walgreens (based on their website information) does not have many GCE brands available. We found only 6 GCE brands available on Walgreens website. We believe even lesser will be available in stores. Compare this with more than 1,000 results one get when ‘Garcinia Cambogia’ is searched on Amazon.com. Thus it scores poorly here.
Ease of shopping: Walgreens is a great choice as far as ease is concerned. They have a robust website and a good payment system. The delivery also seems to be taking place in time as we did not find many customers complaining about late deliveries. But unique thing about Walgreens is its huge store network which are present almost everywhere in the US. Thus people who do not want to shop online can easily go to stores for buying. This is a great plus point.
Price: We did not find any difference between Amazon and Walgreens prices
So what’s our verdict?
We believe while Walgreens has great store network and reputation but lack of available brands is a big limitation. Thus, we recommend, as a customer it is much better for you to explore online options such as Amazon.com. Yes, if brand you like is available on Walgreens store nothing like it, go ahead and buy it from there!
We would like to mention that Walgreens owns online portal drugstore.com but here we have restricted our focus on Walgreens stores and not its online offerings.
