Pharmacy / Drugstore

The general term "drugstore" means in most cases also "pharmacy" because the big drugstore chains have a special section where "prescription drugs" are sold.

To name some of the nationwide drugstore chains: Walgreens, CVS/pharmacy, Eckered.

A drugstore sells things like hair care products, baby products, skin care products, sexual health products, cosmetics, Wellness products, allergy products, and so on.

OTC products A drugstore sells things like hair care products, baby products, skin care products, sexual health products, cosmetics, Wellness products, allergy products, and so on.
Additionally thet have special aisles for so-called OTC medicine. OTC stands for "over the counter" and means you don't need a prescription for what you find here. Many products here will be also "light-weight" versions of their "prescription relatives", so it's always a good idea to check first if you can find the needed medicine here because you don't need to see a doctor for the prescription. OTC products are mostly considered reasonable priced or even cheap compared to other countries.

Supermarket Chains
Probably all of the supermarket chains have a pharmacy and a drugstore department which means you can get your prescription drugs there as well. Or as explained the OTC products and personal care products. Examples for large supermarket chains are: WalMart, Publix, Safeway, Albertsons, Winn Dixie, KashnKarry, etc..
