I have a personal interest in the industry, and I have been buying my food from various independent pharmacies for quite sometime. I am a bit of an advocate for the “independent pharmacy” model, but I do not believe that the majority of food and drug stores are independent. In fact, most major chains and supermarket chains have their own food and drug stores.
In the past I believe that the big food and drug companies have been successful at forcing their stores to have these smaller stores and independent stores. As a result, I have been able to buy my drugs from independent pharmacies, but I am not sure that I feel that these independent pharmacies are the best option.
Well I think that the major drug companies will use this to try to make it more difficult for you to do all of your own purchases, and the drug companies will probably try to force you to buy their products online instead. So that will make it easier to do your own purchases. That could be great for you, but I think that it will make it far more difficult to get quality medical supplies.
I didn’t write that down for you.
I’m sure that there are people that will love franks specialty pharmacy and will shop there themselves, but the fact of the matter is that most of these pharmacies are not doing a very good job on security, so I think that any consumer that shops here really needs to get the heck out of there. I’m not saying they’re not good in all aspects, but they need to be a lot better.
If you have access to a hospital, a pharmacy, or a doctor, you probably know what I mean. If you don’t, then you should really check on that.
The fact is that the majority of retail pharmacies that I have found operate at a loss. I have no idea why they do this, but I know that they can, because as long as your on a budget, you can shop anywhere.
I mean, if a pharmacy is offering a great deal, like a new drug that cost 1/10th the price that you would normally pay for, you dont have to shop in that pharmacy, do you? The same goes with grocery stores. If they have a great deal, you shop somewhere else.
This is why I think the majority of retail pharmacies are horrible. They really need to rethink their business model because the average retail pharmacy makes more profit than a chain drug store. This is the same reason why I think they will eventually lose their own specialty stores because of the high percentage of profit margin that comes from the drug store business. When you are talking about a loss of 70% in profits, you are talking about losing a ton of money.
The other reason that I think this is wrong is because it is so easy for drug stores to buy “brands” that aren’t real. I’m sure a drug store is gonna buy a drug from a generic company, but they are probably going to buy a generic drug somewhere else because it’s cheaper and just as effective. This is why I think that generic drugs are actually more effective than brand-name drugs when you compare them side by side.
