Independent Pharmacy Rated Highest in J. D. Power’s Annual Survey.

IMG_0297 (1)

Each year, J. D. Power rates pharmacies and the profession of pharmacy. In the 2017 ranking, which was just released in September, J. D. Power found that Good Neighbor Pharmacy (of which we are a part as an independent retail drugstore) “ranks highest overall among brick-and-mortar chain drug stores.”

What does that ranking mean? It means that independent pharmacies, under the umbrella of the Good Neighbor Pharmacy label, are the most loved and highest rated among all pharmacies.

Good Neighbor Pharmacy features the slogan we love and that you see broadcast on our windows: “Locally Owned. Locally Loved.” We think that slogan sums up the J. D. Power rating.

To read the J. D. Power survey, go HERE.

Additionally, each year, Gallup takes a look at the honest and ethical standards among various professional fields. In healthcare, pharmacists and nurses typically rank number one and number two with having very high standards. Not surprisingly, Congress ranks at the very bottom of the ratings with 59% of respondents saying their honesty and ethics were very low.

At the end of 2016, pharmacists came in second place after nurses in the annual Gallop poll. The polling showed that 67% of those who were surveyed thought pharmacists were very honest and ethical. Nurses, by the way, were rated very honest and ethical by 84% of respondents.

To see the Gallup listing, please go HERE.

The National Community Pharmacists Association’s (NCPA) CEO, B. Douglas Hoey, RPh, MBA, issued the following statement about the Gallup survey: “We commend community pharmacists across the country on their impressive showing in the latest Gallup survey of Americans’ views of honesty and ethical standards. People continue to hold pharmacists in very high regard. In this survey covering 22 professions, pharmacists are the second most trusted. 

“It is time for payers and policymakers to better utilize the accessibility, expertise and public trust in pharmacists. NCPA will carry that message into 2017 as health care reform efforts accelerate and the shift toward a value-based care system continues.”

National Prescription “Take-Back” Day is Saturday, October 28.


The National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day will take place on Saturday, October 28 from 10 am to 2 pm. During this yearly event, you can turn in old or no longer used medicines for proper disposal. We know that many of you may have medications that have expired or that you don’t take any more and this is a perfect way to make sure they are destroyed so that no one gets hurt.

Adopt-a-Bookshelf Fundraising Campaign for The Plain City Public Library.


The Plain City Public Library is growing and they plan to do it one bookshelf at a time.

This is such a neat idea (but we’d expect nothing less from the creative minds at the Library).

In December 2017, the library will begin a complete interior renovation. At that time, community members may adopt a shelf in the library for a one time $50 donation. On a secret location at the bottom of each adopted shelf, the donor can place a special message–perhaps a dedication to someone who has died, a message to a loved one, a signature, drawing, traced hands, or any number of other unique notes or images.

Before the shelves are placed in the renovated library space, images will be taken of each shelf and given to the donor. In 2018, all donors will get the chance to preview the library renovations and find their adopted shelf and message before the project opens to the public.

The renovation of the library will include new technology, as well as new multipurpose spaces and an updated, imaginative children’s reading area. The children’s reading area will include “hints of a tree canopy and soft clover underfoot”–a secret garden hidden inside the library. Oh, how awesome!

Joe and I will definitely be adopting a bookshelf or two!

If you would like to adopt a bookshelf, complete the online donor application HERE.

You can also print the adoption application by going HERE and submit it with your $50 donation to: The Plain City Public Library, 305 West Main Street, Plain City, OH 43064.

If you would like to drop off your application and dedication in person, please contact Chris Long at 614-873-4912, ext. 123 or email: clong@plaincitylib.org to allow the staff to know when you plan to stop by so they can have an adopted shelf ready for you.
