Giving Walgreens the boot. What’s your favorite pharmacy serving Milton MA?
In a recent (and popular!) post, a Milton Neighbor asked:
Members of the Milton Neighbors Facebook group responded with helpful recommendations.
“So, I’m giving Walgreens the boot and looking for a new pharmacy. We seem to be reduced to either Walgreens or CVS around here and I hate the CVS in East Milton Square. Haven’t tried the one on Hyde Park Ave? Costco doesn’t seem to take Harvard Pilgrim. Who uses the Wegmans pharmacy and what are your thoughts? And lastly, any other pharmacy recommendations in the area other than the 2 above? Thank You!”
Check out the responses from Milton Neighbors and let us know what you think!
“CVS on Gallivan Blvd”
“Oldens is Weymouth is a small pharmacy. If you don’t mind the ride they are totally worth it. They also deliver (although I’m not sure if they deliver to Milton). I use them for my elderly moms prescriptions. They deliver to her in Rockland. They are super nice & helpful.”
“Surprisingly ,the Osco pharmacy in Shaws ~ Hyde Park Ave. is really a great little pharmacy. Super nice people and I get all my Flue and Corvid shots there. The Shaws has done a new make over/ nicely done.”
“There is a pharmacy at Crown Colony owned by a Milton resident, maybe someone will know the name. I heard he also delivers to Milton on his way home!”
