Carlisle, Pennsylvania-based Giant Food Stores has launched the Giant Pharmacy App, which enables customers to request refills, transfer prescriptions and view prescriptions. A pharmacy app for Giant’s Martin’s Food Markets brand is also now available.
“We understand the changing needs of our customers to shop for their groceries whenever and however they want; it’s the same when it comes to managing their prescriptions,” says Leigh Shirley, director of pharmacy operations, Giant Food Stores. “Our new pharmacy app builds on our digital offerings and is a natural extension to help our busy customers request refills, transfer prescriptions and more with just a few simple clicks.”
Both apps can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. Customers will need to create a unique account ID and password to sign into the app, as well as provide a recent prescription number and the Giant or Martin’s pharmacy location it was filled when creating their account. To ensure patient security, the customer will be contacted upon completion of registration at the phone number in their pharmacy profile to authenticate the account. In addition, the new pharmacy app features a comprehensive health library, giving customers access to medical resources and information.
Giant and Martin’s pharmacists are available seven days a week to fill prescriptions and offer expert advice. Additionally, pharmacists offer adult immunization reviews and administer adult vaccinations, subject to state regulations, including those for influenza, pneumonia and shingles.
“As partners in good health, our pharmacists are a trusted health and wellness resource for our customers, from helping to manage prescriptions to assisting with the right over-the-counter medications to conducting free screenings,” says Shirley.
