Walmart - Price Gouging In Pharmacy
Mini Ultra Thin II - Complaint
MT OLIVE, NORTH CAROLINA -- I had many new prescriptions to pick up at Walmart. I questioned the price of all of them, or so I thought. I made it clear that I did not have a lot of money to pay for these. I questioned a 40.00 charge for a new pen type medication. I said I needed it so I would pay once for it and get a discount card for the future. I saw a charge of 40.95, I thought that was the tax. NO it was the charge for NEEDLES!! I have been a diabetic for 20 years and have never paid more than 10.00 for a box of needles!! The pharmacists were trying to close for lunch, so I though I would resolve this after they came back from lunch. I was told "Yes" they had 9.00 needles and that yes I did question every price but they thought I wanted the most expensive product they carried because the Dr prescribed that one!
I was told I could not exchange it and that I had to keep it since it had left the pharmacy!!! I think that is BS another way to rip off people. I told them to never charge that product to me ever again!! I am still thinking about moving my stuff away from them for this. I don't need to work with a company that is willing to readily rip off people that are sick or dependence on medication to not be sick.
I think this is unethical and I think it needs to go viral about how badly this pharmacy - nationwide treats it customers. I have been reading other reviews also.
