A new pharmacy in Weidman recently opened to serve area residents in a unique way.
Wrigley Pharmacy opened May 8th at the R & R Family Store. It's Wrigley Pharmacy's second location, the first being in Wellston, MI.
Manager Tisha Peterson said Wrigley's is unique because of bill that passed in Michigan back in 2020, that allowed tele-pharmacies in the state.
A tele-pharmacy is staffed by trained, certified, and licensed pharmacy technicians, with the pharmacist verifying all prescriptions and offering PT consultation via an audio/video link with the pharmacy.
Peterson said they are very excited to offer its pharmacy services to residents in Weidman. Adding the response from the community has been great since being open.
Wrigley's is planning a big grand opening event on Friday, June 16th from 2pm-7pm.
Both State Senator Roger Hauck and State House Representative Jerry Neyer will be in attendance during festivities.
The free community event will be offering hot dogs, beans & chips, bounce houses, kids games, pop corn, and sno-cones. They'll also be doing a 50/50 raffle with the proceeds being donated to the Weidman food pantry and a matching donation from Wrigley's. The pharmacy will also be collecting non-perishable's for the food pantry as well.
