Consumer Reports nails price gouging pharmacies.

I found this article comparing drugstores in the June issue of Consumer Reports (which hit news stands Monday night).

Some pretty interesting findings, including the tidbit about prices below:

“Our national study of prices for four common drugs found average total differences of as much as $340, or 26 percent, between the cheapest source, Costco Wholesale, and the priciest, Rite Aid. Even prices within a chain often differed: A Shopko in Omaha, Neb., charged $160 for alendronate (the generic version of Fosamax, for osteoporosis); a Shopko in Billings, Mont., charged $257. Prices also varied greatly from one independent pharmacy to another. Wal-Mart, Publix, and Costco were most likely to have consistent prices.”

Oh, a great blog. It is so interesting and rather informative. There is something I would like to say about consumer reports. Whoever started that is a genius. They do work. One thing when people claim to their relatives or friends and it is completely different when this or that problem is made public. There is this great site There you may find hundreds or maybe even thousands of consumer reports about almost every company.
