    This is positive! It was positive that ESRX/MHS deal may crater, and give WAG an "in", bringing ESRX back to the table! THEN it was positive that ESRX/MHS would close, because WAG has a deal with MHS! Now RX's are off 11.4%, this is wonderful because WAG customers are healthier, and will live longer, and buy more over their lifetime. This is great news! Positive! Way to go WAG!

    A few more positives : Park anywhere in the lot - no other cars around, no more waiting in checkout lines, they have a pretty decent Photo center and a GREAT candy counter, although somewhat stale, VERY inexpensive! WAG rocks!!
