Schnucks Washington Pharmacy Customers Can Receive FREE Prescription Delivery While Store Is Temporarily Closed


            WASHINGTON, Mo. – While the Schnucks Washington Pharmacy is temporarily closed, customers can count on the Schnucks Pharmacy at Eureka Point to fill their needs.  Customers can call the phone number on their prescription bottle for the Schnucks Pharmacy in Washington (636-239-4120) and that number automatically will be rerouted to the Eureka pharmacy.

            In order to minimize any inconvenience to Washington Pharmacy customers, Schnucks Vice President of Pharmacy Mike Juergensmeyer says Schnucks is offering free home pharmacy delivery from the Eureka pharmacy to customers in the Washington area.  “Our customers’ health and wellness are top priority, and we are working to ensure they will be able to continue to count on Schnucks for their medications even while the store is temporarily closed,” Juergensmeyer said.

            Although the fire damage was contained, due to the intense smoke and soot, all product must now be removed, the store cleaned and inspected and then restocked with new product.  At this time, there is no estimate as to when the store will be open for business.   However, new updates are planned for later in the week.
