Spartanburg, SC -- October 9, 2004 -- QS/1 announces a business development relationship with eVitamins to create a new revenue opportunity for CornerDrugstore customers by offering eCommerce shopping. As a result of this new relationship, CornerDrugstore will roll out its online shopping solution, eSupplements, later this year. This will provide an opportunity for CornerDrugstore pharmacies to generate a new revenue stream and increase traffic to their pharmacy`s web site without being required to make any additional expenditures.
Via this relationship, CornerDrugstore web sites will offer their customers a large selection of over 300 different brands of vitamins, supplements and herbal products without adding any additional inventory or shelf space to the pharmacy.
By offering this broad range of nutritional supplements on the CornerDrugstore web sites, pharmacy patients can save time searching for nutritional products and eliminate multiple transactions associated with ordering from various web sites.
"This relationship will offer the CornerDrugstore customers a one-stop solution for ordering prescription refills and nutritional supplements," said Randy Burnett, QS/1`s network services coordinator.

"eVitamins is excited to have the opportunity to team with QS/1 in offering this innovative service on CornerDrugstore.com, benefitting pharmacies and their customers alike, and enabling consumers to regain control of their health," said Thomas Wick, managing director, eVitamins.
