Drug Store Retailing - US - February 2016
"The drug store market has expanded well beyond traditional drug stores to include other channels such as mass merchandisers, supermarkets, and warehouse clubs as well as mail order options that also fulfil consumers’ drug store needs."
- Diana Smith, Senior Research Analyst - Retail & Apparel
This report looks at the following issues:
- Drug stores can expect continued moderate growth
- Drug stores in fierce competition with Walmart and "other" channels
- Lack of awareness about in-store retail health clinics
For the purposes of this report, Mintel has defined a drug store as a retail store where a primary component of the store is a pharmacy, selling prescription medicine and staffed with a pharmacist. Other categories commonly found at drug stores include over-the-counter medicine, beauty and personal care, household needs, and a limited selection of food. When referring to “drug stores,” this report considers those that are traditional drug stores, not including other retailers with pharmacies such as grocery stores, warehouse clubs, or mass merchandisers. These other retailers are also discussed in the report as locations consumers may shop for drug store needs, yet are not referred to as “drug stores.”
