Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Mass Merchandiser Pharmacies, 3 Years in a Row

BENTONVILLE, Ark., Oct. 10, 2018 – For the third year in a row Sam’s Club ranked highest in Customer Satisfaction with Mass Merchandiser Pharmacies according to the J.D. Power 2018 U.S. Pharmacy Study. The study is based on responses from 10,749 pharmacy customers who filled a prescription during the three months prior to the survey period of May-July 2018. Among the different pharmacy segments, Supermarkets have the highest levels of overall satisfaction averaging a score of 863, while Sam’s Club ranks highest overall among Mass Merchandiser pharmacies, with a score of 892.

The study found that among Mass Merchandiser pharmacies, the key driver of overall customer satisfaction is the availability of health and wellness services. In addition to its robust Free/$4/$10 program where Sam’s Club Plus members receive discounted prescriptions, Sam’s Club also has Optical Centers and Hearing Aid centers in the majority of its nearly 600 locations.

“We were honored to receive this award again this year and believe it is reflective of our incredible pharmacists and pharmacy teams taking great care of our patients,” said Lori Flees, senior vice president, Health and Wellness. “We know our patients want access to high-quality and affordable health care services, and we are thrilled they responded to this survey in such a positive, powerful way.”

Sam’s Club thanks its patients for its business and welcomes new patients to come meet their local pharmacists and learn how Sam’s Club can be the right place for their health and wellness needs.
