Pharmacy Drive thru closed
Permalink   


How many Kroger stores have Pharmacy drive thru closed? Sign said closed due to staffing. How can they get away with this? Maybe some front end cashiers could help out and just run a register? Maybe a chance to climb the latter?

First off......I would believe most drive thur RX's are low activity (at least the ones in my area are). 2nd.......If the FE is also having staffing issues, why would they pull someone from the FE to start working back there? Pharmacy/Healthcare is hiring like crazy because of COVID and RX's taking the leading role in COVID Vac's.

I'm guessing staffing will be an issue everywhere for a good while. Yes, businesses can pay more, but then with the higher prices, they will have less business. People don't understand they cant have "low" prices, and a high level of service.

 Cause they dont pay enough. Pharm tech and cashier are two different things. Imagine some one is isnt trained or cant read get the wrong prescriptio.

 Every time I go when the Window was open there would be a very long line. I know 30 or more cars in the line and one time I seen it backed up all the way to the receiving dock. I even have pictures. I am not sure if this will post or not it is huge.

WOW....the RX windows around me are never that busy. In reality, the window should just be for picking up something once you receive notification of it being ready/filled.

It's not feasible to work and that's why no one wants to work...let alone at Kroger:

 They should be one window for drop off and one for pickup. People seem to sit and wait for prescription to be filled. And Pharmacy will send a text notifying you when ready.

I'm not surprised. It's not that difficult to come inside. If you're not able bodied or high risk you can send an errand boy. I get a lot of this through the mail. It's just easier. Covid may have changed the way we operate as a society for probably 50 years if not more. When society gets shut down for 1.5 years you're going to feel the effects for 5-10 years easily.

 Well when I passed by today there was a truck sitting at the Pharmacy Window. So I assume they have reopened it or it closes at a certain time.
