What Time Does Walgreens Pharmacy Open and  Close?

In the United States, Walgreens Pharmacy opening and closing hours can be a little more varied than other pharmacies. Certain stores will open earlier than others, whilst some will be opened until a later time too, making it more of a task to find a precise time. Some stores even have 24 Hour Walgreens Pharmacies, which is rather unheard of but useful none the less. To find these Walgreens locations and any other stores, simply visit the Walgreens Store locator and search for stores that are 24 hours.

For these reasons, it can be a good idea to get your local Walgreens Pharmacy number to call and inquire about their specific hours of operation. These can be provided in your search results when using the store locator tool.


NOTE: Walgreens pharmacies typically have the same hours as the store, although they sometimes open one hour later and close one hour earlier. For example, if a Walgreens location opens at 8 a.m., the pharmacy might not open until 9 a.m. and it might close at 11 p.m. instead of 12 a.m. like the rest of the store.
