Besides the selection at Duane Reade, one of the other things I like best is that so many of their locations are open 24 hours. I’m not a huge shopper, but I have to admit I like browsing aisles, seeing new products and finding out what cool new things are about. The best time to get this “time out” is either before the craziness of getting the kids up in the morning or after they go to bed in the evening. That’s where the genius of having a 24 hour Duane Reade comes in.
I’ve found that Duane Reade’s LOOK Boutiques have a huge selection and many of the season’s newest trends, so even if I’m not buying it is still fun to look.
Because it’s easy to build a shopping list online, I loaded up the Duane Reader on my laptop. It also helps jog my memory for some of the everyday items I may need to buy like tissue paper. I need lots of that at the moment as my allergies seem to be going into overdrive. It seems so cruel to be punished with allergies for enjoying the outdoors, but so it is. My allergies seem to be worst after a run. Must be all the pollen in Prospect Park. The special offer of 2 Boutique Boxes for $3 was right up my alley for cost as well as being a green product. Did you know the Facial Tissue is 75% Tree Free – made from readily renewable sugar cane by-products. Neat, eh?
