Schnucks adds 300-plus generics to its discount list

ST. LOUIS Schnuck Markets last week added more than 300 commonly-prescribed generic drugs to its prescription savings program via several new offers including $4 generics for up to a 30-day supply, and $10 for a 90-day supply on medications to treat a variety of ailments including high blood pressure, arthritis, asthma, cholesterol, diabetes, and allergies, according to published reports.

“We have been strategizing for months on how we might offer savings significant enough to help offset rising costs and enhance the one-stop shopping experience for our customers,” said Schnucks vice president of pharmacy Michael Juergensmeyer. “Back in October, Schnucks became the first chain to offer customers a 21-day supply of any one of more than 50 generic oral antibiotics at no charge. We’ve been able to significantly strengthen the program by bringing many more medications in through our own distribution center. This has enabled us to cut supply chain costs and pass those savings on to our customers.”

If a customer’s insurance dictates a lower price than $4 for a 30-supply or $10 for a 90-day supply, the customer will receive the prescription at the lower price.

“We recognize that as a major pharmacy operation with multiple store locations, we are in a good position to make affordable medications more accessible to customers in all markets we serve,” Juergensmeyer said.”
