Four in 10 Greek pharmacists poised to go out of business, poll suggests

Four in 10 pharmacies in Greece are on the verge of closing, according to a survey carried out on behalf of the Panhellenic Pharmacists’ Association (PFS).

Almost 96 percent of pharmacists said they had been affected by the economic crisis, while 38 percent said they might have to close down their stores, which translates into about 4,000 pharmacies.

The opinion poll was carried out by Marc on a sample of 502 pharmacists. Nine in 10 respondents said that the state has delayed paying them, while eight in 10 said they are owed money by customers.
