Those of you that follow other WAG boards may
recognize these questions, so I apologize for the
repetition. I'm just trying to cover as many people as I
For WAG Pharms and other employees:
I'm curious to
hear more about your asessment of WAG management vis a
vis employees, and whether you think their cost
management could become a liability. I've noticed several
other R.Ph.'s complaining of long hours, etc. on other
boards. I also have a WAG near where I live that suffers
from horrible pharmacy service. The problem seems to
lie partly with the pharm in charge, but another
R.Ph. told me that they get really lousy techs because
they won't pay enough. I haven't noticed it as much at
other WAGs, but if these kinds of problems are
prevalent in other stores, I worry about how the company
will cope with numerous new stores and the need to
continue hiring staff. Also, an R.Ph. I know there said
they were having a lot of problems with the new pharm
systems. What's your asessment of that issue,
you think that could be a liability with a
significantly larger store base?
I have news for you. That store has only been
there for 2 or 3 years. That is how all the new Longs
are. They all look old. Very nice Rite Aid in Lake
Tahoe. Thats an hour from me. That store is strange
looking. I have never been there. We go to Rite Aid up
there. Big huge place and it sells everything. Sporting
Goods, Fabric, Plants, everything! All the stores @
Tahoe are old except for the Safeway in Roundhill (NV).
It was old but new store built replacing 40+ yr old
old dump. The Lucky there was remodeled, but so
crowded they just can't keep it up. And the 2 Raleys are
Longs stores look messy. I saw one in the Lake
Tahoe area (CA side), and my impression of it was old.
It wasn't remodled or anything, but for a fast
growing area like Lake Tahoe, it deserves a newer store.
Yeah the stores are not bad, just not modern and
have very high prices. Some Long's stores are better
than others. Some older ones are getting quite junkey.
As a whole they have pretty good stores, but not
enough priv. label items and high prices.
Speaking of Longs, how about a run down from
someone who knows something about the company, or has at
least shopped at them a lot. I'm curious. I was in one
in California that seemed pretty nice, but based on
"storewanderer's" comments, I'd like very much to hear more.
The run down motel on the site where the first
Reno WAG is going up is being knocked down! I can't
wait for WAG! I am sick of crummy drug stores like
Savon and Long's. Now WAG is coming. And hey so is Rite
Aid. YIPPEE!! Competition for the greety stores: Savon
All stock split news are this time at purely
speculative! I have checked with WAG and they have no comments
or release about WAG will have any stock split. This
will require a board approval.
It may prehaps
be suggested but nothing yet is considered
"Official". Hang in there!!
Why does people think that because I criticize
WAG that I'm short on WAG...You're new to this
board...all of you...
Go back DOG, more than the last
I'm long on WAG. One out of many
If you're talking about our shortstop, he's the most
By the way, no one in the bleachers
would yell WAG sucks. They chant the names of each
player in the first inning, starting from left field,
until the player acknowledges them...
no other ball park has that kind of fan loyalty. No
one here would know what the "bleachers"
To all you other guys, look up alias in the
dictionary...Maybe I should have picked another. But Mantle's the
best that ever walked the Earth...judging by number of
World Series Championships won and last person to get
the triple crown...
WAG should support the pharmacists, can the DM's
cause they don't do any work, come up with more
creative ideas than cost cutting.
point...whoever shorts this stock is an idiot.
I am a pharmacist, although not an expert on
pharmacies, but I do get to see the Dallas Cowboys practice
daily here in Wichita Falls, Tx. I also get to fill
their scripts but unfortunately they don't come to the
store to pick them up. We deliver and just let someone
in the dorm sign for them. Go Cowboys and Walgreens
