Who’s Afraid of … Shall We Say … Wal-Mart?

Wal-Mart’s entry into the prescription drug arena had pundits theorizing that once again they would drive out the competition and drugstores would not be able to survive in the wake of the retail mega-giant.  Well, apparently Walgreens never got the message because they continue to grow.  Having recently acquired the Duane Reade drugstores in the New York area, Walgreens is announcing the addition of yet another competitor – their acquisition of Drugstore.com . The acquisition will give Walgreens access to Drugstore. com’s 3 million customers along with its Beauty.com, SkinStore.com and VisionDirect.com operations. And Walgreens profits continue to grow!
