BY Alaric DeArment

FRISCO, Texas Sales at Assured Pharmacy rose 1.4% in July over the month before, the specialty pharmacy said Thursday.

Assured, which focuses on chronic pain, said total sales on a same-store basis for the month were $1.42 million, compared with $1.4 million in June. The July figures mark a 20.8% increase over sales in July 2009.

“We are very pleased with our sales results in July, which marks our fifth consecutive month of revenue per business day growth,” Assured CEO Robert DelVecchio stated. “The results reflect continued progress in the implementation of our strategies, especially when taking into consideration that the summer months have been historically lower-revenue months due to seasonality.”

BY Allison Cerra

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. The sixth season of documentary-style comedy “The Office” now is available on Blu-ray and DVD.

As part of this groundbreaking set, the Blu-ray release of season six of “The Office” will allow fans to access content like never before via BD-Live. Through their Internet-connected Blu-ray player using BD-Live, purchasers now will have an opportunity to watch the latest five episodes from the seventh season after they air on their home televisions. Season seven episodes will be available in HD, pending individual Internet connection speeds.

This season of “The Office” focuses on the evolving lives of Dunder Mifflin’s hilariously irreverent employees, including Jim and Pam’s wedding and the birth of their daughter, Michael’s affair with a married woman and the acquisition of Dunder Mifflin by Sabre, a printer manufacturer.

The Blu-ray and DVD both are available on Sept. 7 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
