    What are the "slow days" in retail pharmacies?

    Are weekends the "slow days"? I heard Mondays and Fridays are the busiest days for retail pharmacies (Walgreens and CVS), but is that accurate? I would prefer to work on slower days, but it really doesn't matter because I'm sure every day is busy.
