business news in context, analysis with attitude

Florida’s WFTV-TV News reports that five Publix Super Market store managers have been accused by authorities there of stealing and selling drugs from one or more of the chain’s pharmacies.

The station reports that “Seminole County deputies say managers were stealing massive amounts of the highly addictive painkillers hydrocodone and oxycodone, with plans of selling them for their own profits.” The authorities reportedly have served four warrants and seized five vehicles in the case.

The drug thefts reportedly were part of a much larger drug ring, with investigators having worked on the case for more than four months.

Publix has only confirmed that one of its store managers, Thomas Grzeszczak, had been arrested. It would not say whether he or the other implicated managers remain employed by the company.

This probably isn’t what Publix had in mind when it crafted the slogan, “It’s our pleasure.”

Though maybe “it’s your pleasure” would have been more appropriate.
