When it comes to choosing a pharmacy, you can never be too careful in deciding which one you’d like to rely on to provide you with your medical prescriptions. Many people choose big name pharmacies like Walmart because of the sheer size of the company, but in most cases, local pharmacies can provide better service at better prices.

While stores like Walmart do provide an ‘all-in-one’ type of experience, they are often overcrowded, unkempt, and lack a certain level of proficiency. At a local pharmacy, you can get better service — the pharmacists will get to know you and care about your needs. You won’t just be another nameless face the pharmacists will forget as soon as you walk out the door. You can count on local pharmacies to stay in touch and keep you updated with their latest procedures and changes to the facility.

Have you ever gone to a big name pharmacy just to find out that your prescription isn’t ready, or even worse, hasn’t even been received? Issues that stem from lack of communication happen at big name pharmacies constantly. The smaller size of a local pharmacy doesn’t have as many customers, so your presence will not soon be forgotten. Local pharmacies provide exemplary customer service and continue to prioritize the overall customer experience.

If you’ve ever gone to a big name pharmacy and expected them to have your prescription ready, you know how frustrating it can be when they run out of the medicine you need. They may be able to give you a few small doses to last a couple days, but then you’ll have to go through the process all over again just to get the rest of your prescription you expected to be ready the first time. Not only are big name pharmacies careless, but they run out of medicines more often than local pharmacies due to their high amount of customers.

If you’re wondering whether to sign on with another big name pharmacy or give a local pharmacy your business, locally owned pharmacies will provide better service the vast majority of the time. Your health is important, and it should never be compromised by careless actions of big name pharmacists. Support your health and your local economy by choosing a local pharmacy.
