Drug Store News realized a long time ago that the retail pharmacy business is a whole lot bigger than just the pure-play drug channel. It’s food, drug, mass and independents, public companies and private companies alike. It’s anywhere in America there is a pharmacy counter operating in a retail environment. That is the way that DSN defines retail pharmacy in 2010. In the pages that follow, DSN’s editors profile the Top 50 pharmacy retailers in America, measuring all of these very different companies by the one metric that matters — pharmacy sales — and the relative commitment of senior management to pharmacy, health and wellness. DSN is the only publication that measures the industry this way.
