Free antibiotic program well-received at Stater Bros. stores, company says

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. A retailer based in Southern California said its offering of free 14-day supplies of selected antibiotics, including refills, was well received by its customers.

In September 2009, all 28 Stater Bros. Super Rx Pharmacies throughout Southern California began offering the program to anyone with or without health insurance coverage who presented a prescription. Since the program's inception thousands of prescriptions have been filled. As a result of its success, this program remains in place to further provide customers with accessibility to crucial medications during these challenging economic times.

The free antibiotic program offers eight different classes of antibiotics. Stater Bros. also offers a $4 generic prescription program. Over 300 commonly prescribed medications are $4 for a 30-day supply.

"Stater Bros. realizes that many of our customers are experiencing some level of hardship," stated Jack Brown, Stater Bros. chairman and CEO. "Stater Bros. will remain committed to this program to ensure the health and well-being of our valued customers."
