retail news in context, analysis with attitude

In Memphis, the Daily News reports that a battle seems to be brewing on the in-store health clinic front.

Kroger is opening “The Little Clinic” inside five of its stores there, and Walgreen already has eight “Take Care” clinics inside Memphis area stores.

In both cases, the clinics are operated by physician assistants and nurse practitioners, and offer basic health care services including vaccinations, treatment for common ailments and physical exams.
