(Yonkers, NY) The store you choose to pick up your prescription drugs from could impact your wallet.

A survey by Consumer Reports finds some pharmacies charge more than others for generic prescriptions.

The shoppers found they could pay as much as $749 more for a generic over a year at the highest-priced pharmacy, compared with the lowest.

The priciest places were CVS, Target and Rite Aid.

The least expensive were Costco and Sam’s Club.
