I really don’t care what happens anymore. I just want all of this to end. Is there any way we can find out when will this situation be over realistically?

It will be over on your last day. Retail pharmacy is almost dead. Make plans for alternate employment.
Yeah, that and find some way to cover the $1 billion they've lost buying c-ap companies like Jet.com to try to keep up with Amazon. Don't expect the Walnuts to have to "save money live better". That's on the backs of the people who worked so hard to make this company successful for so many years.
The retail pharmacy business is experiencing little growth. The script count is declining because of script abandonment on higher cost d--gs, the decline in o---id prescribing, and the increase in 90 days scripts. In our store, if the 90 days scripts would have been 3 30 days scripts, the script count would have been flat.
With the over supply of pharmacists, expect the higher paid pharmacists to be laid off and replaced with lower paid new hires. Off site processing and automated filling will also reduce the need for pharmacist hours.
The situation above will continue as the home office tries to find ways to lower payroll. After all, they have to pay for a new $5 billion corporate campus.
