Ritzman Pharmacy opened their doors today for the first time in Buehler’s Fresh Food Markets. Ritzman Pharmacies, Inc. and Buehler Food Markets, Inc. announced today the completed transition of all Buehler’s in-store pharmacies to Ritzman Pharmacies. Ritzman will now own and operate all of Buehler’s eleven pharmacies.
Buehler’s has offered full service pharmacy services to their customers since 1979.
This collaboration of businesses will allow Buehler’s customers to continue to have access to valued pharmacy services while they shop. Also, each business will be able to focus on what they do best: Buehler’s- providing their customers with a superior supermarket and grocery shopping experience, Ritzman- providing excellent pharmacy services. Both Ritzman Pharmacies and Buehler Fresh Foods share a mutual commitment to exceeding customers' expectations, making this an excellent collaboration.
Former Buehler’s prescription customers will see no changes in how they get their prescriptions filled. Insurances accepted, co-pays, and cash payments will remain the same. Pharmacy hours will also remain the same. “The transition to Ritzman Pharmacy will, for the most part, be seaml
ess to our customers; they will see the same faces and receive the same outstanding service they have come to expect from our pharmacies,” stated Bob Buehler, Buehler's V.P. of Marketing. “This is an exciting time for Ritzman Pharmacies. We are looking forward to delivering service beyond the commonplace and exceeding customer’s expectations.” Jerry Ritzman, Ritzman V.P. of Pharmacy Practices.
