Navarro Discount Pharmacy, the largest Hispanic-owned pharmacy chain in the U.S. and an MBF Healthcare portfolio company, has opened its 32nd store at 14055 SW 88 St. in West Kendall.
“The new store in West Kendall is well positioned in the Kendale Lakes Plaza among other discount brand retailers,” said Juan Ortiz, president/CEO, Navarro Discount Pharmacy. “We are also pleased to return to the Kendall area and meet the demands of the community looking for Navarro’s everyday low pricing and unique assortment.”
The first 100 customers on opening day received a free Navarro reusable bag filled with product and there was free product sampling throughout the day. Free blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol and weight screenings were held on opening day concluding with a mini wine festival.
“The Kendall store has several new departments including a garden center, staffed opy center and a cafeteria,” said Guillermo Mestre, store manager. The 23,500-square- foot store layout features new colors and enhanced signage in English and Spanish, wider aisles, a fragrance section with added light boxes and more products in the refrigerated food and dairy section.
Navarro’s unique services for customers include a pediatric window for busy parents, compounding pharmacy services, a free Diabetes Club for adults and children with diabetes, a Mommy and Me Club and free prescription delivery for all customers.
