Free Generic Antibiotics

Giant Grocery has decided to offer free 14-day supply of generic antibiotics to customers until the near the end of March.  Here is their brief statement of the program:

As part of our health and wellness initiative we're offering you and your family this special service.

Starting January 2, 2009, and continuing through March 21, 2009, our pharmacy is offering you up to a 14-day supply of the most commonly prescribed generic antibiotics for free. Simply bring in your valid prescription from your doctor.

Your good health is important to us. And with cold and flu season in full-swing, we want to do what we can to help keep you and your family feeling your best during the winter months.

At Giant, we're trying to make a difference every day... and we're just getting started!

National Public Radio's  "All Things Considered" provided a good overview of the program and why Giant feels the need to provide these freebies.  The Wall Street Journal's Health Blog has more information on other companies offering somewhat similar deals and the benefits the companies receive..
