July has been a very humbling month here at Island Drug, and we have our loyal customers to thank exclusively.
This month we were honored with 2 Best of Whidbey awards again at the annual banquet: Best Pharmacy AND Best Gift Store!
Then we were also presented with the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce July 2012 Business of the Month. Please click here to read the article.
Earlier this month our company was recognized in the top 16 pharmacies nationally by Cardinal Health for our Newsletter and Podcast program which we use to connect with our customers.
Here is a little about the program from its press release:
"At its annual Retail Business Conference (RBC) for independent pharmacies, Cardinal Health this week introduced Independent Pharmacy Best Practices 2012, Ideas as Original As You Are, a special publication that showcases 16 unique programs, implemented by independent pharmacists from across the United States, that improve patient care and drive business results.
Cardinal Health provides pharmaceutical distribution and a vast array of business support services to nearly 7,000 independent pharmacies from across the United States. The company invited its independent pharmacy sales force to nominate successful best practices from their customers. Retail pharmacy experts from Cardinal Health then selected 16 stories to be highlighted in the inaugural issue of Independent Pharmacy Best Practices; and invited members of its National Retail Advisory Board, which is comprised of leading independent pharmacists from across the country, to select three finalists."
This is our page from the publication that was distributed with an article:

Again, we are humbled by these recognitions and thank our customers for so loyally supporting your local pharmacy. It is that support which truly motivates our staff to work hard every day.
