Amazon Is Buying PillPack Online Pharmacy
Along with all the information Amazon shared on Thursday, they let the public know that they have also agreed to buy the online drugstore PillPack.
According to CNET, the company, which was a startup in 2013, ships medications to people in the pre-sorted packages for those who take multiple prescriptions every day.
The deal clearances Amazon to have pharmaceutical licenses, and they can ship to every state except Hawaii.
The Wall Street Journal shared that the deal was roughly slated to be over a billion dollars, and says that overnight, it became the biggest threat to more than $400 billion in the pharmacy business.
The other contender who lost out on the bid to buy the company? Walmart.
I guess Amazon really is taking over the world, huh?
