Cheaper Drugs at Wal-Mart
In response to an economy “in flux”and as a way to drive business to their stores, Wal-Mart is lowering prices on many of their pharmacy products. The giant retailer is now offering over 1,000 OTC medications for $4 or less and drastically reducing the cost of many prescription drugs. They are offering select drugs at $4 for a 30 day prescription and $10 for a 90 day supply. Target and Kmart offer similar programs, but U.S. supermarket chains Publix and Meijer are taking this idea to the next level by giving away generic antibiotics.
