Juan Ortiz
CEO - Navarro Discount Pharmacy - Medley

Juan Ortiz
"Very optimistic, let me tell you, very optimistic. We will be adding to employee headcount. We're focused here entirely in south Florida. We're expecting a 1% to 2% growth on a same-store basis. We're also adding new stores. Right now I've got 30. I'll have open or have in progress three to five new stores in fiscal 2013 . The good thing about our business is we supply a lot of people's day-to-day needs. We are a value destination. We've got about 1,300 employees currently. We'll add another 50 employees per new store."
