Amazon opens online pharmacy

Now at insulin and inhalers.

The retail colos­sus opened an online phar­ma­cy Tues­day that allows cus­tomers to order med­ica­tion or pre­scrip­tion refills, and have them deliv­ered to their front door in a cou­ple of days.

The poten­tial impact of Amazon’s arrival in the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal space rip­pled through that sec­tor imme­di­ate­ly. The stocks of CVS Health Corp., Wal­greens and Rite Aid all tum­bled Tuesday.

The big chains rely on their phar­ma­cies for a steady flow of shop­pers who may also grab a snack or sham­poo or gro­ceries on the way out. All have upped online ser­vices and tout­ed their abil­i­ties to deliv­er pre­scrip­tions and oth­er goods as the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic has pushed more con­sumers to stay home. But has mas­tered these things, and its online store is infi­nite­ly larg­er, with mil­lions of loy­al shop­pers already buy­ing books, TVs and just about any­thing else.


Big Tech is at war with you! They don't want you to see the truth.
