You might have heard about the unsuccessful negotiations between Walgreens and Express Scripts. Those negotiations, had they succeeded, would have allowed Walgreens to continue as part of Express Scripts pharmacy provider network.
This, as Walgreens points out, is causing significant disruption to customers and bringing absolutely no benefit to them. They now have to change pharmacists and, more than likely, have to drive further to get there. Once there, they probably arrive at a pharmacy with less convenient hours, as Walgreens has more 24-hour and drive-thru pharmacies than anyone else in the United States.
