Walgreens works directly with medical care providers and third-party distributors with over 13,000 stores across the globe!

Target - $105 Billion
Target is a retail clothing and appliance store that has been around since the 60s with over 400,000 employees under its wing. They offer a wide range of products at over 2,000 locations in the United States alone. They also have a wider catalog offered to online customers and work with a large handful of reputable name brands.
The majority of these companies are major retailers that offer more than just one product or product type. This allows them to incentivize consumers to spend their earnings here, where they can get all they could ever need in one location.
Moreover, all of these companies have or have begun to establish a strong online presence to keep up with the consumer demand. At the revenue they are pulling too, they own their own distribution centers and warehouses because they can afford it.
Fees that come from storing your products especially if they require special care (like refrigeration) can be a pretty costly penny. The best course of action would be to go through a 3PL provider until you can provide a profitable income to own your own warehouse space.
