GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – As part of its continued efforts to ensure the well-being and safety of its family of associates, customers and communities during the coronavirus pandemic, SpartanNash today announced it will offer free, same-day prescription delivery at its 88 company-owned pharmacies in seven states.
Free, same-day prescription delivery services will begin Wednesday, April 1 at most locations. Participating pharmacies are located in Family Fare, D&W Fresh Market, VG’s Grocery, Family Fresh Market, Forest Hills Foods and Econofoods stores in Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
The three Martin’s Super Markets in Michigan will also offer free, same-day prescription delivery starting April 1.
“We are waiving any and all delivery fees on prescriptions as a way to help our store guests comply with the shelter in place orders in effect across the country, especially those with higher-risk conditions,” said Lori Raya, SpartanNash EVP and Chief Merchandising and Marketing Officer. “As health care providers, we want the best outcome for our patients. This change helps us ensure that store guests of all ages have every option available to them – at no extra charge – when it comes to filling their prescriptions during these uncertain times.”
In keeping with social distancing guidelines, all deliveries will be touchless; the prescription will be placed on the porch, and the delivery driver will step back and call the store guest to let them know it is ready for them to pick up. Once the driver has visual confirmation the prescription has been picked up, they will continue their delivery route. Free, same-day prescription delivery will be available for store guests within a 10-mile radius of their local SpartanNash-owned store, with delivery times varying by location.
For questions and to sign up for this free service, store guests should contact their local SpartanNash-owned pharmacy. Pharmacists can also assist with transferring prescriptions from other pharmacies, if needed.
SpartanNash pharmacies will continue to remain open normal business hours, with many also offering drive-thru prescription pickup.
