Question Walgreens

If you buy batteries, sunscreen, or any vacation like items at the Walgreens are they more expensive?

Might sound like a goofy question but in visiting some touristy areas we have noticed price increases on certain items. We are considering just doing "carry-on" on the cruise. The only reason that we would have to check luggage is due to liquid allowance.

Thanks in advance.

I've always found the Walgreens on Duval and the CVS on the corner of Duval and Front to be inexpensive for these types of things. Even for a 6-pack of beer if you need it. Don't forget your CVS card if you have one.

Excellent! Great tip on the beer and the CVS card. Thanks, Peter.

Great place to get a bottle of water too! All the stores on Duval charge $2 or $3 for a bottle. You can grab a cold bottle for less than $ at Walgreens or CVS.

The Walgreens on Duval always has a few 2-4-1 items displayed in the small window in front of the store. I've seen sunglasses, disposable cameras, whatever. Take a look before going in to see if it's your lucky day.
