Pharmacies are the most common place you shop in the US, accounting for nearly half of all retail sales.
That’s according to a study from pharmacy research company IMS Health, which found that the pharmacy industry is one of the most cost-effective ways to reduce the amount of healthcare needed.
Pharmacy care is often viewed as a luxury service, and with prices on the rise, it’s becoming more difficult for many people to find quality healthcare.
To keep costs down, some pharmacies are turning to a new strategy.
The New York Times reports that a new pharmacy, called “Aquarium,” is launching in the city of Boston.
The company is aiming to be the first in the country to open a pharmacy in a major American city.
As the Times explains, Aquarium is targeting the “dying market” where there is no immediate need for medication.
It will offer an array of pharmaceuticals, including “drugs that have been on the market for a long time and are available to everyone,” such as “dietary supplements,” and “foods and vitamins that are not commonly available.”
It will also sell prescription drugs for people with chronic illnesses, such as asthma, chronic pain, cancer and multiple sclerosis.
The site also promises to “deliver an array and variety of specialty medications that are needed in the most acute circumstances.”
According to the Times, the company’s goal is to provide an “accommodation for patients who need to avoid unnecessary medications or medicines that are no longer needed.”
