i understand they are already delivering hospital type equipment. a person getting discharged may need several physical requirements, hospital bed, various supplies, in addition to prescriptions. perhaps a wheel chair, or a chair for the shower.. one stop shopping is what he is after and delivery the same day. why do you think the large drug stores are looking at getting rid of the dry supplies they now carry and expanding the floor into more health services? cvs is looking over their shoulder all the time.

i get all my prescriptions from mail order. maybe once a year for some reason i need a new prescription filled immediately. Otherwise i advise my doctor to forward the prescription to my mail order supplier. i can always wait a few days for the new item.

i can amazon having your medications home the say day you are discharged.

i assume you do not buy from amazon. your stores are not price competitive. they are not competitive for delivery. i just ordered a book last sunday at 4pm and it was delivered at 8am the following morning. why in the world would i go to a book store to get it and perhaps pay more. i know of people who work out of their house and have all the supplier delivered by amazon. yes, they have price shopped and cannot get the level of service and price from local warehouse stores.

last year i was going to home depot to get bags of fertilizer. then i stopped and thought why do i need to go down there and lift those bags around when amazon will drop them off at my garage. the price was a few dollars less at amazon and today delivery.

i get all my vitamins from amazon, as well as electric shaving cleaning fluids. it goes on and on. plus prime tv.

it just makes my life less complicated.
