It took a while, but both Trader Joe’s and Walgreen’s have followed the lead of most other major stores and will start to offer “senior hours” starting this week.

Trader Joe’s – NEW – Effective Monday March 23rd Trader Joe’s will implement senior hours every day between 9am and 10am (store hours will remain 9am to 7pm). Crew Members will maintain an additional line outside the front door for our senior customers. This will ensure that those customers in need will have an expedited entrance to the store.

What’s a “senior” according to Trader Joe’s? They’ve left this vague.

Walgreens – NEW – Starting Tuesday, March 24 and every Tuesday for the near future, Walgreens stores will open at 8 a.m., with the full hour from 8 a.m. until 9 a.m. dedicated to senior citizens. This hour is also available to their caregivers and immediate families may also visit the store during this time.

Additionally, we will offer our senior day discount all day on Tuesdays during this time. Customers age 55 and older will receive 30 percent off regularly priced Walgreens brands and 20 percent off regularly priced national brands.
