THIS IS AN EDIT: A BIG thank you to Mike at the 76th and Good Hope store, for rectifying a problem that I encountered at the pharmacy with a meter. Mike called, and was very apologetic with my situation. He was also nice when I met him at the store the next day. I still think the pharmacist needs a 101 class in etiquette. I picked up three prescriptions, one being a narcotics, and he never asked if I had any questions. His assistant brought the medication to the counter. Thanks again Mike, I give you FIVE stars!! I recently visited the pharmacy on 76th and Good Hope to pick up a diabetic meter. The pharmacist gave me a meter that had expired over four (4) years ago. I noticed that the rebate card expired in 2012, but I simple tossed it in the garbage. When I tried to test with my meter, it did not work. I called, and the manager was on duty that day. I told her that a male pharmacist was working that day, and gave me the meter. He was not professional at all. I called him after I returned home and stated it was the same out-of-date meter that I was trying to update. He simply replied that it was the meter the Dr. prescribed. It was a free meter, so I guess he did not care. When I spoke to the manager, she told me to bring the meter in, and she discovered that it was expired. There was one more meter on the shelf and it was due to expire in January 2016, which would have only given me nine months. She said she would order me a new meter, and she did. I now have an up-to-date meter. The other pharmacist, did not check the expiration date, and apparently did not care, since it was free. I had to make three trips back and forth because of his carelessness. SHAME ON HIM!!!!
I understand that we need more bilingual speaking workers nowadays but when you can't speak English in an English speaking country how in the world can you get a job??? But I can't get one if I can't speak Spanish?? Everything is backwards now! Maybe 10 of the employees in this establishment speak English most don't understand what I'm saying, it's ridiculous!!! I will no longer shop here it's one thing to give someone a job but if you can't even understand the language in the country you are working in then you should be learning the language at least or don't work
I was up from Chicago area and my daughter ran out of milk and we went to Groppi's. I was instantly charmed and transported back to my early years in Battle Creek, Michigan where I use to go to our corner grocery. If you enjoy childhood memories of "penny candy", kind chatty shop keepers, hardwood floors, cleanliness and "old world charm", then take a moment to visit this grocery. Thank you John and Anne Nehring for keeping this neighborhood treasure open!
