Consumers most frequently pick mass-merchandisers over other outlets when it comes to purchasing OTC drugs, according to a newly published study by global management consulting and market research firm Kline & Co. In a survey of nearly 1,000 consumers, Kline's study showed this trend across all categories and all types of OTCs.
