Implications: This is just my opinion, but I see this move as Walgreen’s decision to not let Express Scripts define the business they are in… and take control over that decision for themselves.
What business are you in? Is the answer to that question decided by a landlord, vendor or supplier? Or is it defined by you and your customers?
