Last week, I mentioned my frustration with my local CVS. Yesterday, I had to get a new prescription filled (for a sinus infection that will not die), and when the nurse asked me where I wanted the prescription sent, I found myself pulling out the phone number for CVS again.
Wait, no! That pharmacy is terrible!
Instead, I went online and pulled up the phone number for the pharmacy at the grocery store right next door to my CVS. Equally as convenient, and I figured I would give them a shot. When I went to pick up the prescription, I was pleasantly surprised. They were incredibly polite and much better about privacy issues (at CVS, everyone can hear what you’re picking up). The prescription wasn’t ready when I showed up, but they gave me a number and told me I could wait or I could shop and they would call me when they were done. I chose to wait, and it wasn’t even ten minutes.
I got my prescription, paid my miniscule co-pay, and was on my way. The best part? Because I was a new customer to the pharmacy, they gave me a coupon for a free rotisserie chicken and bagged salad, good until the end of the month. And as a gal trying to save money, I love me some free food!
I will definitely be going back to this pharmacy. I was reluctant because I just wasn’t sure about a pharmacy in a grocery store, but they are staffed just as professionally as any other pharmacy, and even more professionally than the CVS next door. So sometimes, trying new things is worth the risk.
