“It’s just one of the things that the government is trying to do,” Mr Gindins told 7.30.
“They’re trying to put pressure on the community to do something about this.”
Mr Gendins said he has already had a few customers cancel their business with the pharmacy because of the Abbott government’s Medicare reforms.

He’s not concerned about the price hike and says the pharmacy is fully equipped.

Mr Gill says he wants his customers to be able to buy their drugs at Sam’s store without paying more.
“That’s a business decision for us,” he told 7
