Baker's Pharmacy joins Health Mart franchise

Local independent pharmacies hold a special place in the heart of their customers. They take care of customers when they are ill and play a vital role in maintaining their health. To help the pharmacies stay financially healthy, they have banded together with Health Mart in a network of independent pharmacies.

Twelve independent Rhode Island pharmacies, including Baker's Pharmacy in Jamestown, have partnered with the Health Mart franchise because of their strong commitment to customer service and local ownership. The ownership and location of the pharmacies will not change.

Joining Health Mart will give the pharmacies a national presence, aid in contracts with health insurance companies and help them offer more competitive pricing.

While they will be able to offer all the benefits of the large chain pharmacies, the Health Mart pharmacies will retain the small store mindset.

Health Mart offers all the goods and services that customers expect and is redefining the current concept of the pharmacy to meet the needs of the future. Unlike chain operations, local pharmacies are as much a wellness center as they are a retail store.

Health Mart pharmacies carry name brand over-the-counter products, as well as the Sunmark brand of most products, from antacids to vitamins.

The only changes customers will notice are new décor and signs.
