FLORENCE, S.C. — The Piggly Wiggly Pharmacy celebrated its one-year anniversary with a grand-reopening and a ribbon cutting Friday afternoon.
The Piggly Wiggly Pharmacy, located at 1945 W. Palmetto St. inside the Piggly Wiggly grocery store, accepts all insurance plans and is an independently owned local pharmacy.
Brian Long, pharmacist in charger, said the pharmacy was formerly Sup-RX, but rebranded and reopened with the new name under new leadership last year.
“We’re just celebrating the fact that we’ve been open for a year and we really want to become more involved in the community and help people out as much as possible,” Long said.
As part of that desire to be in the community, Long said, the pharmacy has supported a YMCA soccer team, provided many more immunizations over the last year and looked for opportunities to communicate with people and offer the lowest prices possible.
He said joining the chamber was the next step in the pharmacy’s growth in community outreach.
“Being involved in the community is important for us,” Long said. “We’re excited to be here and really want to be able to help out people and other businesses, as well.”
Attendees were able to stop by the pharmacy and enter to win a touchscreen Chromebook, a fire pit or a television, as well as enjoy free food and other giveaways.
“Our No. 1 advantage is our staff,” Long said. “We’ve got the friendliest staff and people really enjoy that. They’re all very knowledgeable and that’s certainly our biggest asset. It’s a family environment and our customers are on a first-name basis.”
Piggly Wiggly Pharmacy is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.
