Meijer pharmacies marked a major milestone this month when one of the retailer’s pharmacists dispensed the 20 millionth free customer prescription through its free prescription program. The program – a first of its kind when launched in October 2006 – has since saved Meijer customers more than $284 million, said Nat Love, vice president of Drug Store for the Grand Rapids, Mich.-based retailer.
“Meijer is a family-owned company committed to meeting the needs of other families. We do this by providing positive solutions to everyday problems, which can include access to necessary medications,” Love said. “We began our free prescription program with that in mind, and are pleased that so many families across the Midwest have found it valuable.”
