Amazon.com Inc. and drugstore.com inc. are ending a partnership in which the online pharmacy fulfilled some orders for Amazon.com.
The partnership will end Nov. 9, although Amazon.com will maintain its approximately 14 percent investment in drugstore.com.
Seattle-based Amazon said it had by now forged relationships with most major pharmaceutical brands, allowing the online retailer to get more products directly at better prices.
Bellevue, Wash.-based drugstore.com said it made the decision to end the partnership because the deal only accounted for a small portion of its sales, at low margins.
