Glen's Markets Adds Discounted Generic Drug Program
Date:6/19/2009

Now 30-day prescriptions for $4 and 90-day prescriptions for $10

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- All Glen's Markets pharmacies serving communities throughout northern Michigan are pleased to now offer a generic drug program for 30 day prescriptions for $4 and 90 day prescriptions for only $10 -two new programs offering lower prices on over 300 generic drugs to meet the healthcare needs and healthcare budgets of our customers, especially important during this challenging economic times.

"Our expanded generic drug program is another example of the many ways we are making it easier for customers to stretch their food, healthcare, and household dollars," said Alan Hartline, Executive Vice President Merchandising. "Our customers can continue to rely on the expert health counsel and friendly service our team of professional pharmacists consistently offer," added Hartline.

This new program introduced in November 2008 to our Cheboygan Glen's Market's customers has proven both popular and successful with our customers. Prior to broadening the program throughout the 13 Glen's Markets pharmacies, the program was introduced in Gaylord in (March, 2009) and in Kalkaska (May, 2009) to coincide their the grand re-openings of these stores following their extensive remodels.

The generic drug program also complements several other programs Glen's Markets are offering customers to help them stretch their food, fuel, healthcare and household budgets.

Glen's Markets In-Store Pharmacy Program Specifics

The $4 and $10 generic drug program covers more than 300 drugs prescribed in 30-day supplies. A complete list of medications (by brand, condition, and generic name) is included with this press packet. Conditions include: allergies, anti-inflammatory, antibiotics, anticoagulants, antidepressants, antifungals, antihistamine, antipsychotics, antiviral, anxiety, asthma, cancer, cholesterol, cough/cold, dental health, diabetes, diuretic, ear analgesic, gastrointestinal, glaucoma, gout, heart, heart/blood pressure, hormone, muscle relaxant, nervous system, Parkinson's, skin treatments, supplements, thyroid, urinary analgesic, urinary tract, and vitamins.

Generic vs. Name Brand

Generic drugs are a less expensive alternative to name-brand drugs. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), requires that all drugs be safe and effective. Since generics use the same active ingredients and are shown to work the same way in the body, they have the same risks and benefits as their brand-name counterparts. After a company's exclusive right to market a medication expires, other companies are allowed to develop generic equivalents - usually at a much lower cost. Consumers interested in saving money on prescriptions should ask their doctor or pharmacist at their neighborhood Family Fare or D&W to determine if a generic drug is available for their prescription and if it is right for them. A list of the 19 Family Fare Pharmacies and 10 D&W Pharmacies in West Michigan is listed below.

Focus on Health and Wellness

This program complements other health and wellness programs Glen's Markets offer customers throughout the year to help stretch healthcare dollars, prevent illnesses and educate our customers on healthy lifestyles. Screening dates tend to match up with various events throughout the year, and may include:

  • February: Health Hearts/Valentines
  • May: Women's Health/Mother's Day - breast cancer, osteoporosis, bone density scans
  • June: Skin Cancer prevention and detection; men's health (prostate screenings)
  • September: Cholesterol Screenings
  • October: Flu Shots
  • November: Diabetes

The majority of the screenings are free or at a greatly reduced rate. No prescription is required and results are given to the patient, unless requested to be sent to a physician.
