How many years has Ehrhardt Pharmacy been in business?
Erhhardt Pharmacy began business in November 2013.
What has been the most significant change within your pharmacy over the past 5 years?
Our pharmacy has been able to put clinical services into practice. We became certified to teach diabetic education and diabetes prevention classes. We participate in hypertension counseling, healthy eating programs and promoting wellness programs.
What are your favorite ways to get involved with your community?
Our children in the community are of importance to us. During June and July, we host a summer reading program where a local teacher does a reading and have crafts and interactive fun games for children. There is also a lunch followed by ice cream. During Christmas, we host Cookies with Santa, where Santa is on-site and there are homemade cookies and hot chocolate, the book the “Night Before Christmas” is read and customers can make a tree ornament and write a Christmas card to our military troops.
How do your patients and community shape your offerings? What keeps your patients coming back?
Our patients like being able to talk to a person when they call, being called and alerted to problems with their prescriptions and not waiting in long lines. They enjoy not having to drive 12 to 30 miles to pick up prescriptions or get them filled. People come back because they are part of our family. Our community is a family. And those who can’t purchase their prescriptions in our pharmacy still stop by for other things.
What do you think your patients love most about your pharmacy?
Our patients often comment that it is nice to visit a store where people want to see you, talk with you and provide help. We are a family-like community.
What does Locally Loved mean to you?
Locally Loved is seeing your patients and community members return for a visit time after time. It is a pleasure to own a local independent pharmacy in a town full of wonderful, caring people. They make us feel loved.
