New Giant Pharmacy Program Offers Relief for Your Family and Your Wallet
Date:6/24/2008

LANDOVER, Md., June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Americans are experiencing rising prices on many essentials, including the medications they need. In fact, prescription drugs represent one of the fastest-growing medical expenses. From 1990 to 2005, spending on prescription drugs increased from $40.3 billion to $200.7 billion, according to a recent report published by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

To help, Giant is introducing a new way for families, seniors and others to save on prescription medications. Giant Pharmacy's new generic drug program enables consumers to purchase 350 of the most commonly prescribed generic medications for just $9.99 for up to a 90-day supply.

"By taking advantage of our new generic drug program, families can save more money on the medications they need," said Andrea Astrachan, Consumer Advisor for Giant Food. "They can also conveniently have prescriptions filled while they do their grocery shopping, saving time and money."

Giant Pharmacy's new generic drug program is effective beginning June 6, 2008. For more information, including a list of generic medications included in this new program, visit http://www.giantfood.com/locator/?linkid=105.

Giant customers also can save more on non-prescription medications with new lower prices everyday on health and beauty care non-prescription items at Giant. Last month Giant announced that it had lowered prices on more than 5,000 health and beauty care items customers use every day. Astrachan further commented, "We've listened to our customers, we know these are products they use every day, and we've lowered our prices on these items so they won't have to go elsewhere to get a great deal."
