PERMANENTLY CLOSED AFTER 90 YEARS IN BUSINESS

Despite our dedicated employees, attention to patient care, and growth in sales, the battles we faced as an independent pharmacy were not enough to keep our doors open. All patient files were officially transferred to Rite Aid at 375 Philadelphia Street, Indiana, PA June 30, 2020.

 

We thank our community from the bottom of our hearts for your support over the years. It has been a pleasure to be "The Know You By Name Pharmacy" all of these years.  

Our closing had nothing to do with COVID-19 but rather the challenges that we, and other community pharmacies, face due to the practices of pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) who act as middlemen between pharmacies and insurance companies, causing reimbursement fees to be low and fees they charge to be high. 

While there is sadly no hope for us, there is still something you can do to save your local pharmacy. 

 

HELP SAVE

INDEPENDENT PHARMACIES

Despite fighting and advocating for change to the payment model, our pharmacy and other community pharmacies like us have been forced to close recently.

 

This is an ongoing worsening issue that, if not resolved, will result in many more closures of independent pharmacies.

WHAT WE DID

We were proud to be independent because it meant we were able to accomplish just as much, if not more, than what corporate pharmacies do without sacrificing the customer service. Our patients could always count on us to provide them with the attention they needed to make their healthcare more accessible. From calling patient doctors, helping people save money on much needed medications, managing and organizing medications, and so much more, we found real solutions to patient problems. 

 

PRESCRIPTIONS

Patients could easily request a refill, opt for special packaging, arrange automatic refills & more.

 

VACCINES

 

 

We administered vaccines for the flu, traveling, & more. Travel vaccine consultations were also available.

SPECIAL PACKAGING

 

We organized medications for patients by day & time into  one simple packet, thus making it easier to know what to take & when.

 

AUTOSYNC RX

 

 

Prescriptions were set up for once monthly pick-up or delivery for free to all patients.

 

FREE DELIVERY

 

We offered free delivery long before Amazon. We also had a convenient drive-thru window.

MEDICATION SAVINGS

Our VIP membership program allowed patients to save money & get more from us. 

 

GATTI CARES

 

 

Through Gatti Cares, we partnered with local healthcare providers & caretakers to help them with patients.

DME

 

 

Our certified fitter helped patients with a variety of DME products, from Dr. Comfort shoes to canes & stockings.

STUDENT SERVICES

IUP students could use their student discounts, receive the travel vaccines they needed, & more.

 

MATERNITY CARE

 

We carried a variety of maternity care items including breast pumps, nursing bras, & cloth diapers.

OUR MANTRA

We still believe the best care is local, and we believe in being accessible to patients. Just like you, we are mothers, fathers, daughters, brothers, sisters, grandmothers, friends...and we always wanted to treat our patients as we would have wanted our own families to be treated. ​
