The idea for our pharmacy began out of a desire to try and replicate the pharmacy of yesteryear. Raise your hand if you have a memory of a small-town pharmacy where the people that worked there knew your name. Where your mama let you get a bottle of Coke if you could go 5 minutes without hitting your sister. Where you knew that you weren’t just another customer, you were part of a family.
That’s the vision we had for Saver Express. We believe that big is not necessarily better when it come to which pharmacy you use. At our pharmacy, you’ll never get lost in the bustle or constant turnover that plagues some of the big-box chain stores. We desire to get to know you on a personal level, and to play a vital role in your health and well-being. Our pharmacist and staff are patients too, so we know the value of friendly, efficient service.
And if the nostalgia and friendly environment aren’t enough to convince you, swing by and enjoy a milkshake, root beer float, or an ice cream cone made with Blue Bell ice cream. Or how about a Shirley Temple or Cherry Phosphate from our soda fountain?
If you are tired of trying to deal with the chain pharmacies, or if you just like the idea of slowing things down a bit….then we might just be the pharmacy for you. Pay us a visit, sit at the bar for a spell, and soon you’ll see that this is not your typical pharmacy….but maybe it should be.
We get a lot of questions about who we are and what we do. So let’s hit the high points:
What is an independent pharmacy?
For IRS purposes, an independent pharmacy means our owners are Madison County locals. We aren’t a franchise, and we don’t answer to a corporate office.
For you, Saver Express being an independent pharmacy means we are friends and neighbors who care about your family wellness. We promote community wellness because we share the same community–your health is our health.
Why does it matter what pharmacy I use?
At Saver Express, we want to get to know your family and your needs. Sally needs her inhaler before the soccer game? You got it. Mama June needs her medications packaged so she’s not calling you every hour asking which pill to take? We got that, too. You might not want personal care–no hard feelings! But if you are tired of being another number at a chain pharmacy, we got your meds right here.
I get my prescriptions at [big chain pharmacy] because it’s convenient, and if you think I’m dragging my kids on another errand you have lost your ever-loving mind, so how does this help me at all?
We get it–we have kids, too, and ours are probably crankier than yours. That’s why we’re not only the coolest pharmacy, but the most convenient. Don’t believe us? Check out all our services here.
But aren’t independent pharmacies, like, a LOT more expensive?
Nope, that’s not how it works. Your insurance copay is the same at Saver Express as it is at [big chain pharmacy]. We all accept the same amount of cash money, so it just depends on where you want to spend it. (Us. Give it to us.)
So y’all accept my insurance?
What is a “compounding pharmacy”?
We provide non-sterile compounding for our patients–think hormones and dermatological medicines. Legally, we can only compound medication that is not commercially available. Sterile compounds are ones you inject with a needle. We don’t do those, because ouch.
So just compounding, no retail drugs.
Nope, we do it all. Everything from maintenance drugs to your cold medication to OTCs. Go big or go home, you know?
OK, calm down. You convinced me–y’all are the coolest. How Do I Transfer My Meds To saver Pharmacy Express?
We’re glad you agree! Short answer: just call us and we’ll get your info. For more information on that process, click here.
