CAMP HILL, Pa. (Oct. 1, 2014) - To kick off American Pharmacists Month, Rite Aid is bringing back its nationwide Vote for Your Favorite Pharmacy Team Member Contest with a new video voting feature. Through the contest, Rite Aid customers have a chance to win $2,500 in Rite Aid gift cards by nominating a favorite member of their Rite Aid pharmacy team. The contest, now in its eleventh year, was designed to recognize Rite Aid pharmacy associates including pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, pharmacy cashiers and Wellness Ambassadors, for their commitment to providing excellent customer service.
"American Pharmacist Month is the perfect time to honor the Rite Aid pharmacy teams for their year-round commitment to providing excellent patient care," said Dan Miller, Rite Aid senior vice president of pharmacy operations. "Every day, they are making a difference in the lives of their customers and the communities we serve. This program is just one small way we can thank them for their hard work and dedication towards improving the health and wellbeing of our customers."
From now through Oct. 31, in addition to uploading a video nomination at www.riteaid.com/vote, customers can vote for their favorite pharmacy team member by completing a mail-in nomination form available at any Rite Aid pharmacy or online at www.riteaid.com/vote. Customers who vote will automatically be entered into a random drawing to win $2,500 in Rite Aid gift cards. One nominated pharmacy team member 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/vote.
All "favorite" Rite Aid pharmacy team members will be recognized by Rite Aid with a Favorite Pharmacy Team Member lapel pin and a letter of commendation from Rite Aid's Chairman and CEO John Standley.
