at The new Web site was designed specifically

for independent Valu-Rite pharmacies.

24 hours a day, as well as gain access to information about different

medications. The site also provides information about store hours, payment

methods and other pharmacy services. It incorporates a pharmacy locator,

information about member pharmacies and links to national

health-related organizations.

"Our patients and customers have told us that they appreciate the

convenience of ordering prescription refills and purchasing

[over-the-counter] products over the Internet,"

tell us how much they appreciate having a real pharmacist that knows them,

is available to answer questions and provide valuable information.

Now, through our Internet site, we can do both."

Center Pharmacy, the ability to design, build and maintain Web sites.
