In response to the coronavirus pandemic, pharmacies inside Family Fare, D&W, and Forest Hills Foods Stores are making it easier to get prescriptions.

The grocery stores' parent company, SpartanNash, announced it will offer free, same-day prescription delivery at its 88 company-owned pharmacies in seven states.

Lori Raya, SpartanNash EVP and Chief Merchandising and Marketing Officer said in a statement,

“We are waiving any and all delivery fees on prescriptions as a way to help our store guests comply with the shelter in place orders in effect across the country, especially those with higher-risk conditions As health care providers, we want the best outcome for our patients. This change helps us ensure that store guests of all ages have every option available to them – at no extra charge – when it comes to filling their prescriptions during these uncertain times.”

Delivery service will start April 1st at most locations and will be available for store guests within a 10-mile radius of their local SpartanNash-owned store, with delivery times varying by location.

Participating pharmacies are located in Family Fare, D&W Fresh Market, VG’s Grocery, Family Fresh Market, Forest Hills Foods and Econofoods stores in Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The three Martin’s Super Markets in Michigan are also participating.

SpartanNash says all deliveries will follow social distancing guidelines: the prescription will be placed on the porch, and the delivery driver will step back and call the store guest to let them know it is ready for them to pick up. Once the driver witnesses the prescription being picked up, they will continue their delivery route.

Anyone with questions should call their local SpartanNash pharmacy.
