Walmart Pharmacy Hours: When to Get Prescriptions at Every Location

Walmart Pharmacy hours aren’t the same as the actual Walmart superstore it’s found in. Stores usually lift the shutters at 6 AM, but prescriptions aren’t typically available until 8 AM or 9 AM, depending on the location. Pharmacists head home for the day before the shutters come back down at 11 PM too. There are also different hours for Saturday and Sunday as well. Here’s how a look at the normal Walmart Pharmacy hours and how to find them for any Walmart Pharmacy nationwide.

The easiest way to see the Walmart Pharmacy hours at your nearest store is to head over to the Walmart Store Finder. You can then choose your nearest (or preferred) location, and find the exact operating hours for the Walmart Pharmacy. To find this information, click on ‘More’ next to the ‘Services at This Store’, then choose Pharmacy from the next screen. You’ll then be shown the hours for Monday though Friday, and Saturday and Sunday, and contact information for the department.

Alternatively, you can call the store and ask the advisor what time the Walmart Pharmacy closes. They’ll be able to provide you with the most accurate information, and to let you know about any delays. You can also request to be to be patched through to the Pharmacy to ask about a specific prescription, like whether it has been prepared and is ready for collection, or what time to come to collect it if it isn’t ready yet, so you don’t have to wait around while it’s dispensed.

Is Walmart Pharmacy Open on Sunday?

Walmart Pharmacy is open on Sunday. Hours are a little different to Monday to Friday and on Saturday, though: Walmart Pharmacy opens at 10 AM and closes at 6 PM at all locations on a Sunday. It’s typically for only one pharmacist to be on duty on a Sunday, so you may find that the Walmart Pharmacy closes from lunch from 1:30 PM to 2:00 PM, so we recommend avoiding this window altogether unless you’re planning on spending some time in the superstore. 

What Time Does Walmart Pharmacy Close for Lunch?

Walmart Pharmacy closes for lunch from 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM if there’s only one pharmacist on duty. This isn’t advertised anywhere, and the stores themselves can’t always tell you if you reach out in advance, so it’s best to just avoid this time slot altogether.
