    CVS, Duane Reade, Rite Aid, Eckereds, Walgreens, etc all have their generic otc products such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, aspirin, etc. The question is where do they get it from? I know they dont manufacture it.

    They all have contracts with different generic mfg's. It's just like store brand mac & cheese versus Kraft Macaroni and Cheese
