A Note from Friday Harbor Drug
Friends and neighbors, the hours here at the pharmacy will be changing effective Wednesday, April 8th. The pharmacy hours will be:
- Monday – 9:00am to 5:00pm
- Tuesday- 9:00am to 5:00pm
- Wednesday – 9:00am to 5:00pm
- Thursday – 9:00am to 5:00pm
- Friday – 9:00am to 5:00pm
- Saturday – 10:00am to 5:00pm
- Sunday- CLOSED
This is in order to keep a more staggered staffing schedule to hopefully ensure that if one of the staff becomes ill we can still operate. I know that this will be an inconvenience to some but our goal is to remain operational throughout this and we can’t guarantee that without reducing hours.
At this point we are moving towards full curbside pickup for everyone, including everyday items. If you only need over the counter items, please utilize option 4 on the automated phone system. We ask that you place your order at least 1 hour prior to pickup. This helps keep the spaces open for those that need them. The idea is to make the pharmacy entirely closed-door and curbside pickup by the end of the week. Many people are still entering the store to do non-essential things and that puts everyone at risk, including our staff.
You may be asking:
- “What if I don’t have a vehicle?”
We will gladly run the prescription or everyday order out to you. We ask that you wait in front of the store.
- “I don’t have a cell phone. How do I tell you I’m here?
We will hopefully be utilizing an intercom system that allows us to communicate with people that walk up. This is still in the works but moving quickly. I will update when I know for sure.
- “I have a hardcopy prescription to hand in to the pharmacy. What do I do?”
Give us a call when you are here and we will come out to take it from you. We ask that you either wait in your car in a non-curbside pickup spot or that you run an errand and wait until the medication is done.
- “I don’t have a credit card or a checkbook. How can I pay?”
We are strongly encouraging credit card transactions. We know that not everyone has that ability. When placing an order, notify the person you are talking with that cash or check is your only option. If paying by check, we will call to confirm the total with you so that you can write the check for the exact amount. We will collect that when we hand off the order. If paying with cash, we will call to confirm the total and the exact amount you will be paying with. Example: Total is $19.26, you will pay with two $10 bills. We will then place the exact change in with your order and collect the intended amount prior to handing over the order.
Please share this information with as many people as possible. Please let your neighbors and friends know.
