Rite Aid Patients Asked to Vote for Their Favorite Pharmacist

Published Online: Wednesday, October 5, 2011
In honor of American Pharmacists Month, Rite Aid is asking patients to vote for their favorite pharmacist by sharing stories of extraordinary service and telling what makes their pharmacist special. The program, now in its eighth year, honors Rite Aid pharmacists for their commitment to customer care and service.

From now through October 31, customers can vote for their favorite pharmacist online or via a mail-in nomination form available at any Rite Aid pharmacy. Votes can also be cast by “liking” Rite Aid’s Facebook page and visiting a special tab. Those who vote will be entered into a random drawing to win $2,500 in Rite Aid gift cards. A nominated pharmacist also will win $2,500 in Rite Aid gift cards through a random drawing. For complete details and official rules, go to any Rite Aid store or visit www.riteaid.com.

“There’s no better time than American Pharmacists Month to thank our pharmacists for the superior customer service they provide to Rite Aid patients throughout the year,” said Dan Miller, Rite Aid senior vice president of pharmacy, in a statement. “Whether they are counseling a customer on a new medication or helping a caregiver to understand and manage their loved one’s disease, our pharmacists play a critical role in the health and wellbeing of their customers and communities. This program lets our pharmacists know how proud we are of them and how thankful we and their customers are for all that they do.”

All “favorite” Rite Aid pharmacists will be notified by Rite Aid and receive a Favorite Pharmacist pin and a letter of commendation from Rite Aid’s President and CEO John Standley in honor of their superior customer service.
