CHETCO PHARMACY AND GIFTS WINS AWARD

Chetco Pharmacy, a member of Health Mart, the nation's fastest-growing independent pharmacy franchise, has been selected as a regional winner of McKesson's 2008 Pharmacy of the Year award.

McKesson's annual awards program recognizes leading independent pharmacies for the exceptional healthcare contributions they have made to their communities over the past 12 months.

McKesson selected the regional award winners based on performance against several key criteria, including: customer educational programs, use of technology to increase efficiencies and ensure accuracy, product selection, in-store programs and design, local marketing and advertisement and community involvement.

"Our regional pharmacy of the year award winners consistently provide patients with excellent customer service. Through hard work and dedication to their customers, award winners exemplify why Health Mart was recently ranked No. 1 in customer satisfaction nationwide," said Tim Canning, president, Health Mart. "It's an honor to congratulate all of our regional award winners for their commitment to delivering the highest level of pharmaceutical care."

"At Chetco Pharmacy, our number one priority is to always exceed the expectations of our customers," said Tim Yantis, RPh and owner of Chetco Pharmacy. "As an independent pharmacy, we're faced with an increasingly competitive marketplace, but one that is also ripe with great opportunity for growth. McKesson and Health Mart have partnered with us every step of the way, providing us with the resources to create a best-in-class pharmacy that our customers can count on for the highest level of personal attention. We're thrilled to be named a Pharmacy of the Year."

Yantis, a native Oregonian, has served as the full-time pharmacist for Chetco Pharmacy for the last 11 years and has worked at the pharmacy for the last 28 years. Chetco Pharmacy is a second-time recipient of the Pharmacy of the Year award having also won in 2005.

  • Asia up on Wall St. rally and China hopes, euro sags on Greece
    Asian stocks rose across the board on Tuesday after a rally on Wall Street and steps by China to shore up its economy boosted risk appetite, while Greek debt worries again haunted the sagging euro. Spreadbetters expected European shares to pull back slightly after Monday's rise, calling for Britain's FTSE (.FTSE), Germany's DAX (.GDAXI) and France's CAC (.FCHI) to open a touch lower. Tracking overnight gains in U.S. stocks, MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up 0.5 percent. Japan's Nikkei (.N225) bucked the trend and lost 0.2 percent.
  • Oil extends losses as deadline for Iran nuclear deal looms
    Oil futures extended losses on Tuesday, as Iran and six world powers ramped up the pace of negotiations to reach a preliminary deal that could ease sanctions and allow more Iranian crude onto world markets. With a deadline less than 24 hours away, United States, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China were trying to break an impasse in negotiations aimed at stopping Iran from having the capacity to develop a nuclear bomb, in exchange for an easing of international sanctions. "Iran has built up significant oil inventories and could immediately increase exports if sanctions are lifted," analysts at ANZ said in a note. Shipping sources say Iran is storing at least 30 million barrels of oil on its fleet of supertankers, as Western sanctions keep a lid on sales.
  • Exclusive: Cablevision to make $1 offer for New York Daily News
    The offer would come one month after New York media and real estate magnate Mortimer Zuckerman said he was considering selling the newspaper and had hired Lazard Ltd to assist with the process. Cablevision's $1 bid takes into account the New York Daily News' reported $30 million annual loss and $150 million investment in a printing press, and declining circulation that relies heavily on newsstand sales rather than on subscriptions, the source said. Cablevision declined to comment while a representative for the New York Daily News could not immediately be reached for a comment. Cable distributors such as Cablevision and its larger rivals have also been under pressure to stop consumers from dumping their cable subscriptions, or "cutting the cord", as subscribers shift to internet services such as Netflix and Hulu.
