Fruth Pharmacy, FoodFair ink partnership
POINT PLEASANT, W. Va. — Fruth Pharmacy is setting up shop inside two FoodFair locations this summer, providing customers with a convenient way to pick up prescriptions while they shop.
In mid-June, Fruth Pharmacy will take over the existing pharmacy located inside Powell's Food Fair in Pomeroy, Ohio. Later in mid-July, Fruth will open a new pharmacy in the Grayson, Ky., FoodFair. Opening the location in Grayson will expand the Fruth Pharmacy chain into a new state.
Although, the Fruth locations in FoodFair will be reduced in size, customers will still get to experience Fruth Pharmacy’s full service pharmacy. Fruth Pharmacy offers prescription counseling, prescription savings card, prescription rewards club, immunizations, medication flavorings for children and more. Customers will also be able to take advantage of the Fruth mobile app.
The app can be downloaded from the Apple, Android, or Windows app stores for free. Once the app is installed and the customer has registered, prescription ordering is easy. Customers can request refills, keep track of medications, and receive text alerts when medications are ready for pick-up. The app also has a built-in feature to help keep track of family members’ medications, in the event a customer is a caregiver.
The FoodFair locations will increase the Fruth Pharmacy chain to 28 stores in Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky.
