Shopko launches pharmacy smartphone app

App includes prescription refills, pharmacy locator

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Mass merchandise chain Shopko has launched a new mobile application for pharmacy customers, the chain said Tuesday.

Fresh off the heals of its merger with Pamida, Shopko announced the launch of an app for Blackberry, Android and iPhone users that will allow customers to refill and manage their pharmacy prescriptions.

Customers using the app can request refills, review active prescription details — including expiration dates, refills remaining and overdue refills — set up dosage reminders and receive email and text notifications when a refill is ready. It also includes a pharmacy locator that allows customers to locate and get driving directions to a pharmacy while checking hours of operation.

"We are always exploring new ways to improve customer service and make our pharmacy services more convenient, and this app makes finding our stores and filling prescriptions on their mobile devices quick and easy for our customers," Shopko president, chairman and CEO Paul Jones said. "This app is in direct response to consumer demand, and we've worked hard to develop the features most important to our customers. This will be a convenient and simple new way to access our award-winning pharmacy services."
