Grilling for my family and friends over this Labor Day weekend typically means at least one burn for me and scrapes for the kids who are running around like mad playing. I have how to keeps those burns off my hands (see my review here of the awesome oven mitts I use: http://www.judysbook.com/members/MelindaB/posts/2006/9/452254/ ), but I haven't managed to keep those scrapes from my children. So I make sure I have all of the supplies I need for ouchies by shopping my local Walgreens. Actually, there are two that are near my house, one is much newer than the other. I prefer the older location at the corner of Gravois and River Des Peres.
This Walgreens location is always clean and well stocked. That is important to me when I am looking for a specific item. But even more than that, the staff at this store is helpful and nice! I have never been spoken to in a curt manner nor have I been rudely told to look for an item myself (I wouldn't have asked for help if I could have found it). In addition, this store is open 24 hours and the pharmacy is always open.
So if you need to stock your medicine cabinet in order to for the masses invading your house for you holiday festivities, check out Walgreens. I give it five stars.
