From the Palm Beach (FL) Post:
Demand for pharmacists skyrockets
It seems as if there's a new pharmacy on every corner. But is there a pharmacist there, too?

Not always. Drugstore chains, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and discount retailers are clamoring for pharmacists. Baby Boomers are aging, they're moving to South Florida, and they're taking more medicines. So Walgreens and Eckerd drugstores are expanding. Discounters Wal-Mart and Target are adding pharmacies. And new players in the market, such as CVS, recently began opening stores in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast.
