CLEVELAND Giant Eagle Wednesday afternoon announced that effective Nov. 8, the company will expand its popular $4 generic prescription medication program to include a total of more than 400 generic drugs.
“The expansion of Giant Eagle’s program to include 400 drugs for $4 is the largest of its kind by a major retailer,” stated Randy Heiser, vice president of pharmacy. “The generic medications included here are popular drugs that will help our customers, particularly senior citizens and those with families, live a healthy lifestyle,” he said. “The program’s expansion, coupled with a major price reduction on hundreds of drug store items in our health and beauty care aisles, ensures that we continue to deliver the best overall value to our customers.”
In comparison, Wal-Mart’s $4 generic drug program covers approximately 360 generic medicines.
The company originally launched its $4 drug program in late 2006 with more than 300 drugs included.
