Hi Camila,

https://bizfluent.com/info-8246240-difference-between-pharmacy-drugstore.html

This page has a good explanation for it:

"In the United States, the words "pharmacy" and "drugstore" are used interchangeably, though the latter label often suggests a store that sells prescription medications and other products.

(...)

The term "pharmacy," when referring to a business, means a place where medications are dispensed and sold, or both. A drugstore, on the other hand, may be set up as a "convenience store," according to BBC America. Drugstores may sell cosmetics, toiletry items, first-aid supplies and patent medications, such as nonprescription cold medicines. Many drugstores sell greeting cards, gift cards and magazines. In addition, soft drinks, adult beverages, breakfast cereal and milk are common drugstore items."
