Do you need a new Pharmacy?

As you may have already heard many large chain pharmacies will be dropping Express Scripts after January 1st, 2012.  In the Pittsburgh area this will affect UPMC health plan members and all other Express Scripts Members.  Spartan Pharmacy is not one of those pharmacies.

During this transition we want to make things as easy as possible for you to get your prescriptions transferred and filled.  You don’t need the hassle of long wait times or long lines in the grocery store pharmacies.  Give us a call at any of our locations and let us know that you would like to transfer your prescriptions to us.  We will call the pharmacy, transfer your medications and get you on your way.  We realize that you have better things to do with your time than spending it waiting in line.

If you are an existing customer or a new customer, thank you.  As an added incentive we would like to offer anyone who refers a new patient to us a $10 referral bonus which can be applied to your next purchase in the store.  Just have the person who you referred let us know that you recommended Spartan Pharmacy to them.

This is a big change for many people, the shock of having to pack up your prescriptions and move somewhere else is a daunting task.  You are comfortable with the staff and the pharmacists from your previous location and we can understand and sympathize with you.  Rest assured that our pharmacists and staff will take excellent care of you and your families.  Since we are a small local company your money will also stay in the local communities.  We are also equipped to handle compounded medications, if you are interested please inquire at any of our stores.

You can go to our website to get addresses, locations, and phone numbers.  You can also follow us on facebook and twitter (@spartanpharmacy).   From the website you can also fill out a webform that will help us transfer your medications as well.

We hope that you all have a safe, happy, and healthy New Year.  Looking forward to meeting and seeing all of you in the New Year!
