Want a prescription? Pay more at the local pharmacy or go to Wal-Mart where you could get it cheaper. Tough shit for the local pharmacy.
This is more of the global market coming back to roost at home.
I admit though I shop at Walmart alot. Mostly because there isn't much to any option in town. I use the local pharmacy and try to use the only local grocery store in town but it gets harder when items are $2-3 cheaper at Walmart.
