Well Future Pharmacy Featured in Chicago Tribune Article about Independent Pharmacies

Well Future Pharmacy (1442 S. Michigan) got some nice press in a recent Chicago Tribune about independent pharmacies.  The piece talks about some of the differences between independents and large national chains (CVS, Walgreens, etc).

One of our favorite things about independents is their personal care:

When Angie Gleghorn's daughter's eye became infected, she took her to a local walk-in clinic's nurse, who prescribed emergency eye drops. Even though it was after-hours and Gleghorn wasn't a customer, Well Future agreed to stay open longer to fill the prescription, Gleghorn said. " 
Almost 30 minutes after they were supposed to close, they stayed open just to fill the prescription for us," said Gleghorn, 34. "The pharmacist also tried to explain that putting eye drops in your eyes was fun and helpful. It was nice that he took the time to explain things to us."

Nice work Well Future and glad to have you in the Sloop!
