Amazon has announced today that they are ending their arrangement with online discount shopping portal Drugstore.com to provide health, beauty, and pharmacy products to Amazon customers.

Said Doug Herrington, Amazon’s vice president for consumables, “We’ve now built direct relationships with most major brands, including Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Unilever, Bayer, Glaxo and dozens of others. Going direct allows us to source more products at better prices, enabling us to deliver more value to customers.”


Amazon.com launched its Health & Personal Care store in December 2003, and currently offers more than 400,000 unique items that are fulfilled by Amazon.com and over 1,000 HPC merchant partners. Drugstore.com accounted for less than 1% of Amazon’s HPC selection.

According to the announcement by Amazon, Drugstore.com and Amazon reached a mutual agreement regarding the split, which will take effect on November 9th.

So, folks, if you have an affinity for Drugstore.com, you’ll need to go directly to the Drugstore.com site from now on, rather than going through Amazon.

  1. Be careful if you wish all of mega giant Amazon’s competition out of business, especially when it is now owned by the folks that own Walgreens. It has changed in the past couple of years since it was bought by Walgreens. It now has two-day free shipping. I am shopping there and happy. I did not like their old formula but I will happily shop at an Amazon competitor.

  2. Frankly, I don’t know why drugstore.com exists.. They always seem to be out of stuff.

  3. I say “Good Riddance” to drugstore.com. Any online company that tries to charge a customer $4.50 as a “one-time fee” for a particular item that’s out-of-stock, is a scam.
