    • Good luck in playing that folly.

      What I have seen is mini-marts, with the pharmacy closer to the store's entrance, cleaver move... going after the the post war baby-boomers.
      If RAD's CEO, can get her understanding of the pharmacy/heathcare market together, they might pull out of the hole they put themself's in..
      But then again, MOST of the currect CEO's in this sector are avoiding the SG&A issues.

      Wal-mart/CVS/Walgreens.. might look at the patient files but never pay the price you are dreaming about IMHO, Unless the CEO is a putz.

      The "New" heathcare reform act will be a wake up call to these Board of Directors beauty sleep.
