business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Arizona Daily Star reports that Bashas’ has concluded a long-term deal with MediMin Inc. that will result in medical clinics being installed in some of the retailer’s stores operated under the Bashas', Food City and Ike's Marketplace banners.

The story notes that “MediMin clinics are staffed with certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants with physician oversight.”

KC's View:
It may take a while, but the day could be coming when in-store medical clinics are as ubiquitous in food stores as pharmacies. And more so that video rental counters, which are well on their way to being obsolete even though a lot of retailers still have them.
