Kerr Drug offers free prescription delivery
September 28th, 2010
RALEIGH, N.C. – Kerr Drug has kicked off a free prescription delivery service that will bring medications to patients at their homes or workplaces.
The North Caroliina drug store chain said this week that the service is available from its 22 stores in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area. Customers simply call their prescription in to a Kerr Drug pharmacist to have the medication filled and then request that the prescription be delivered to their home or office.
Kerr Drug delivery staff call patients when they are en route to the home or workplace so that customers can be prepared. Patients must sign for the prescriptions upon delivery.
Other store items can be delivered with prescriptions as well. Kerr Drug added that its pharmacists also can assist those who want to transfer their prescriptions from another pharmacy to take advantage of the free delivery service.
"Kerr Drug is a pioneer in the concept of community pharmacy and ultimately that means in finding the best way to serve the people in your community," president and chief executive officer Anthony Civello said in a statement. "There are times and circumstances when customers can't get to the pharmacy, so this is a way to bring the pharmacy to them."
Overall, Kerr Drug has 90 drug stores throughout North Carolina.
