Why are Drugstores Everywhere?

Ever wonder like me why there is a new Walgreens, CVS, Rite-Aid, or whatever drugstore going up on every corner?

Well the above graphic shows exactly why.  You and I are making over 50% of our purchases in every area of life on-line except Drugs & Health Aids.

In fact, less than 10% of Drugs & Health Aids are purchased on-line!

So why is this?

  • Because these items are needed more quickly than others?
  • Because you don’t trust your prescription to a website?
  • Because there are so many stores so close, why buy on-line?

I am not sure which. Maybe it is a combo of them all. But it looks like it will be the last giant to fall.

Wondering what stores are going to close around you soon. You can also learn that from the above graphic as well.

Thanks for sharing Herman.
