Wal-Mart says its program selling some generic drugs for four dollars a prescription is being offered in another 14 states, including North Carolina.
The announcement comes just two weeks after rolling out the
low-cost program, involving hundreds of medications, in Florida. The expansion, which includes Texas and New York, is coming more
quickly than the world's largest retailer said it intended, citing
strong demand from consumers.
Arkansas-based Wal-Mart says the expansion involves more than
12-hundred stores. Wal-Mart operates 128 Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores in North Carolina.
