Walgreens open on Christmas...

This Tattler took a trip to Walgreens at McKnight-Siebert Shopping Center in Ross earlier this week. I was appalled to find that the store will be basically working under Sunday hours on Christmas day (9 a.m. to 6 p.m.).

This would make sense if that respective store's pharmacy was open but it will be shut down. This Tattler does not live in fantasy land so I am well aware that there is a large segment of the population who do not celebrate Christmas but come on...

Is Walgreen's management thinking that people who have a hankering for a candy bar or over-priced cosmetics will need to stop in? Gas stations being open is a necessity, but a local drug store without a pharmacy open is not necessary.

This Tattler once worked for a local drug store and I feel bad for those select employees who have to work that day, keeping them away from their families for such a low wage. Keep in mind the management who made this decision will most-likely not be working this Christmas.

Is this Tattler crazy?

Working to keep you posted...

Walgreen's has a long history of being hostile to their employees' faith, it's one of the reason I avoid shopping there.

The only way to make them stop their practices is to make sure you don't go there for any reason that day, encourage others to do the same and make it more costly to staff the store than to keep it closed.
