The Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors honored Chancy Drugs as the Leading Business of the Week for November 18, 2019.
Chancy Drugs was established in 1966 by Hubert and Sue Chancy as a single location community pharmacy in their hometown, Hahira, Georgia. Now operating under the leadership of the Chancys' two sons, Hugh and Bert, Chancy Drugs remains a family-owned, locally operated, independent pharmacy business.
Hugh Chancy, in particular, is excited about the direction of the pharmacy.
"We take great pride in being an independent pharmacy. Over 50 years ago, our father founded this business on two principles," Chancy said.
"One, maintaining the highest integrity in every area of business and two, treating every patient like they are a member of our family, and we remain focused on maintaining those two standards today."
Chancy is always looking for new ways to make his customers' lives easier, so Chancy Drugs has recently developed a new program called "Chancy Drug ReadyMed".
"For patients living with complicated chronic conditions, it can be difficult to understand or remember medication instructions." Chancy said. “To help ensure every patient is properly taking the correct medication at the right time every day, Chancy Drugs offers medication synchronization and adherence packaging through the company's VIP program called Chancy Drugs ReadyMed."
Chancy Drugs ReadyMed uses a medication synchronization program designed to help patients save time and eliminate multiple trips to the pharmacy by having all prescriptions filled at the same time every month.
These innovations have led Chancy Drugs to receive numerous accolades, such as winning Best Pharmacy for five years in a row since 2015 at the Best of South Georgia Awards.
Pharmacist Beth Rountree, who works at the location in Hahira, has nothing but glowing reviews for the company.
"Being a member of the Chancy Drugs family for the past 23 years has been a true blessing. The company's core values--caring, committed, and community--embody every reason I wanted to become a pharmacist."
Chancy Drugs is a proud member of the Chamber giving them credit for their lasting success.
"Chancy Drugs has been a member of the Valdosta-Lowndes Chamber of Commerce for many years," said Chancy.
"The Chamber has been instrumental in helping locally owned businesses, like ours, to prosper. They offer many key networking opportunities and resources that promote small businesses in our community, and we are grateful for the support they provide."
