    The link between ESRX dispute and Boots purchase

    How can one person use so many words to say NOTHING?

    "Lets flip that switch for 502, and the costs that it undergoes.
    1) shipping,
    2) raw materials
    3) labor
    4) packaging
    a small sample of costs but you see Huge discounts from the Manufacturers for this generic."

    WTF are you talking about????

    The topic was "that each country Language is imprinted on the products being purchased, so distribution for the Manufacturer yields no savings there!!!"

    What does THAT have to do with "raw materials"?

    How the hell does flicking a switch affect "shipping"?

    How many millions of dollars worth of "labor" does it cost to flick a switch?


    Weren't these products going to be packaged anyway? WTH difference does the changing the language on the package make?

    "And the storage cost for that increase buy from limiting suppliers,"

    Huh? What does "increase buy from limiting suppliers" mean. Could you PLEASE stop throwing random words together and try to make just a little sense?

    " I hope they get the Export/Import and storage analysis correct"

    Do you? Really? I think that's nice.

    Especially since WAG has been importing merchandise from overseas for longer than you've been alive.

    "As for the Boots Cosmetic industry's No7, CVS drug stores marketing failed with a like type clientèle, Target does carry this product, but hardly the same Customer."

    <<<<Alliance Boots has a presence in more than 25*** countries and employs over 116,000*** people. Alliance Boots has pharmacy-led health and beauty retail businesses in 11*** countries and operates more than 3,330*** health and beauty retail stores, of which just over 3,200*** have a pharmacy. In addition, Alliance Boots has around 625*** optical practices, of which around 185*** operate on a franchise basis. Its pharmaceutical wholesale businesses supply medicines, other healthcare products and related services to more than 170,000*** pharmacies, doctors, health centers and hospitals from over 370*** distribution centers in 21*** countries.>>>>

    Yeah, you're right. I doubt that a company of that size would have anything that would sell in the United States. What was I thinking?

    "I see your planning on Walgreens becoming the Cosmetic industries leading retail channel overnight, Right!!"

    Maybe not overnight.

    But, YES!

    "That 100 years of experience did not
    stop WMT, CVS, ESRX, from taking Rx customers did it, or Market share."

    1.You are not going to believe how much WAG will hurt CVS in the coming months.

    2.Walmart never releases their pharmacy numbers so we'll never know about them.

    3. The renewed contract will benefit both ESRX and WAG.

    100 years of experience got WAG the ESRX contract it wanted. This was a milestone in the history of the US Drug Industry. The long term benefits far outweigh the temporary loss in what would have been unprofitable sales.

    "As for the United States market, sorry to tell you is not owned by any retailer."

    That's the cherry on the cake for one of the most senseless posts ever.
