    I know Walgreens/CVS located on the strip have alcohol but never noticed if they carry top shelf brands like Hennessy, Grey Goose, Patron, etc. It seemed it was bottom to mid shelf flavored vodka's and things like that when I glanced. Anyone ever bought higher end brands there?

    If you can make it to a Lee's you would be better off. Prices on strip even at CVS and Walgreen are higher.

    I have never noticed if they have high end liquors but the Walgreens by PH has a large walk in cooler for beer and mixed drinks and they have quite a bit of shelf space for liquor. That store seems to have a bigger selection of alcohol than some of the others I have been in.

    If you are down that way the ABC Liquor store inside Miracle Mile might be worth checking out. I can't comment on the prices. I am an impulse shopper at best.

    if they have them, they would be behind the counter. I think they may have some if the ones you are looking for but not all varieties.

    the CVS in front ballys has premium brands at prices just a few dollars over normal cost and its on the shelf not behind the counter. they have room temp and in the back they have hard liquor in coolers. I was laughing at their product placement as they placed coke by the whiskey and on the other end of the isle they had cups and pedialyte....this was just a small section

    Someone was definitely paying attention in class when they were teaching about up selling.
