BENTONVILLE, Ark. -- Wal-Mart Stores here is making its move into 24-hour pharmacies.
The company launched the initiative in five stores last week, expanding pharmacy services to 24 hours in four Neighborhood Markets in Texas and Arkansas, and one Texas Supercenter.
While spokesman Gus Whitcomb said that Wal-Mart does not consider this a "test," it is in a developmental phase.
"We're going to concentrate on these five pharmacies and work to perfect our model," sai
