Post Pharmacy Troubles...

Don't know how it is in the rest of the country, but we have a major issue with local chain pharmacies in our area of New York. It appears that staffing has become a serious problem...the local CVS and Walgreens have really been impacted.

This sign is from a CVS store...of course the employee who wrote this needs some help with grammar and spelling.

Hope other folks are doing better than we are...

My daughter is a pharmacist and the pharmacy manager at Walgreens and she has been working 14 hour shifts because there isn't enough help. She can't keep enough techs working to keep up with that part of it either.

Default RX Issues...

Our CVS pharmacy stopped taking phone calls, closed the drive-thru and the backlog is a nightmare. The Walgreens across the street was closed for 4 days because they had no pharmacist.

Back to CVS...the oldest one in town is a pig pen...the shelves and floors look like one of the 'garage finds' you guys love so much. OK for old cars, but not for a pharmacy dispensing medicine and health products.

It is a real problem...at least in our neck of the woods.

Default Not as bad

I stopped in my Kroger pharmacy yesterday after work to pick up a prescription. The lady that waited on me looked very tired. My area doesn’t sound like you guys but the lines are longer than in the past.

CVS is not in the best of financial health. They will be closing 900 stores over the next 3 years:
