Pharmacy & Apothecary
In an era of chain stores, when given a choice, consumers still prefer locally owned and independently operated pharmacies…and for good reasons. As recently as 2011, readers of Consumer Reports magazine gave independent community pharmacies their highest satisfaction rate (94%) regarding their experiences at a neighborhood independent pharmacy, based on pharmacists’ knowledge about drugs and other products, helpfulness and courtesy, speed, accuracy, and personal service (patients were twice as likely as at chain drugstores to encounter pharmacists who were easy to talk to and provided one-on-one consultations). In summarizing their findings, the Consumer Reports Senior Editor said, “We found that the independents made fewer errors, offered swifter service at the pharmacy counter, and were more likely to have medications ready for pick up when promised.”
