Back to School and Campus

For those students heading off to Campus this fall we have put together a handy list of items that they may want to take with them. These are items that everyone takes for granted that you usually have in the medicine cabinet at home, but they won't be there when you go off to college. It is best to plan ahead before you need these items. Send your student prepared! 

Make sure they have:  Anti-diarrheal tabs, antacids, hydrocortisone cream, antibiotic ointment, pain relievers, thermometer, reusable hot/cold pack, band aids, cold/allergy medicines, immune boosters such as Emergen-C or Airborne, cough drops, tweezer, nail clipper, complete first aid kit, toothbrush, toothpaste, vitamins, lip balm, kleenex, condoms. 

Other items we carry:  fans, alarm clocks, Nebo flashlights, sewing kits, lint rollers, command hooks, bag/chip clips, can openers, food storage containers, dish soap/ sponges, and Febreze. Don't forget the hand sanitizer, Kleenex, and Lysol wipes to prevent the spread of germs while thinking ahead to your first-line flu protection in the next few months. 
Delivery changes

Since Lunds and Byerlys closed their pharmacies in the middle of July, we have had a great influx of new customers to Center Drug. This has added a lot of customers to our Delivery routes, so we ask that you please help us consolidate deliveries by planning ahead. The following tips will help us and our delivery drivers:

* Try to plan ahead and order once a week if you can. If you are ordering one refill, check your other prescription bottles and if something else is running low, order it also. If we can't fill everything, we will send a note along with your delivery letting you know when the other pills will be filled and delivered.  

* Please order in advance as we are trying to do all deliveries next day. So for example, if you order on Monday, you will receive your order on Tuesday, etc. We are trying to consolidate most deliveries to Monday through Friday, and save the weekend deliveries for just emergencies. (We only have one driver on Saturday & Sunday to do residential and facility deliveries, and that route can get pretty bogged down).  

* If you request a delivery, please plan on being home to receive the order. Due to the high volume of deliveries, we cannot always make it back to your home in the same day to attempt delivery again. If you are not home, the driver will leave a post-it on your door asking you to call back to the store and schedule your delivery for when you will be home.  

* If you are on the Hopkins & Minnetonka delivery routes, there are usually 2 delivery runs per day. First run is 1:30 to 4pm, and the second is 4:30 to 7:30pm. If you won't be home all day, please ask for either the first or second delivery run that will fit into your schedule when you call in your order.  

* If you are going to be out running errands, please just stop by the pharmacy and pick up your prescription if you can.  

* As always, we understand that illnesses and accidents happen. We will always try to deliver antibiotics and pain medications the same day whenever possible.
The Dog Days of Summer Clearance

The pet supplements, pill pockets and Minties dog treats that we were carrying did not go over very well, so this month we are clearancing out those items to make room for new merchandise.
Dollar Merchandise

This month all items in the Dollar Section are going to be increased to $1.25. 

The manufacturers of these items have been steadily increasing the cost of these items this year and it is no longer feasible to sell them for $1.00. 

This will be the case for all items in the dollar section and the coloring books.
