I wonder if these guys realize they are dispensing items for just 30c!!! After adding in the cost of the bottles or skillets they are effectively dispensing for nothing! No amount of increase in volume is going to make this viable. Few pharmacies in NZ  have the kind of retail business to accommodate this kind of crazy.
