Shopwise rolls out in-store pharmacies

A US concept that is only being replicated in the country now, in-store pharmacies makes shopping a whole new experience.

Ask anyone what Shopwise is and the most common answers you will get will include words like “grocery,” “department store,” “sale items,” and “bulk,” which pretty well, stands for what the store really is.

Not contented in giving its consumers quality service, Shopwise recently introduced a new feature that will give a complete shopping experience: an in-store pharmacy.

“The concept is inspired by what most stores have in the US and it is something that has not been replicated in the country until now,” Sebastiona Baquiran, senior vice president of Unilab, said during the launch at Shopwide Alabang.

The concept is pretty simple – a pharmacy located inside Shopwise, which will allow the consumer to have his prescriptions refilled while the consumer does the grocery or shopping for clothes. The medicines can then be paid together with all other purchases at the check out counter in one go.

“Now, consumers can go to the supermarket even for their health and wellness needs. If you really think about it, health and wellness starts at the grocery as it is where the food and nourishment for the body is bought,” Baquiran said.

The pharmacy will soon be made available in all Shopwise stores throughout Metro Manila.
