Jessamine County native and business owner Dr. John McDaniel announced he and his partner pharmacist, Fei Xiong, have opened Med-Save Pharmacy Nicholasville, an independent pharmacy which strives to provide the highest level of personalized pharmaceutical care and service.
The pharmacy is located at 1025 N. Main St., near Tractor Supply.
McDaniel is known to many in the Jessamine County community as the owner of Med-Save Wilmore, formerly Sims Drug & Gifts, and son of former Jessamine County Clerk Eva McDaniel.
“Nicholasville, Wilmore, and Jessamine County in general are really important to me,” McDaniel said. “This is my hometown, and I couldn’t be more excited to open another independent pharmacy here. Our pharmacy is literally a tradition here in Wilmore. Many of our customers have been coming to us for generations, because they know we truly care about their health and well-being. We’re excited to extend that tradition to the Nicholasville community.”
Like the Wilmore pharmacy, Med-Save Pharmacy Nicholasville will be part of a “family” of Med-Save pharmacies scattered throughout Kentucky which offer patients the same streamlined service as any big box pharmacy, but with personalized care.
“No matter where they are, our Med-Save pharmacies are connected, so a patient who lives in one county but works in another can stop by and pick up their prescription during their lunch hour, if they’d like,” McDaniel said.
“We’re making it even more beneficial for patients to use an independent pharmacy, and we aren’t losing any of the qualities that make independents so special.”
McDaniel said Pharmacist Fei Xiong is an excellent example of the “family” aspect of all Med-Save pharmacies, McDaniel said.
In addition to the Med-Save Pharmacy Nicholasville, McDaniel and his Med-Save Pharmacy partners have plans to open a Med-Save Pharmacy Lexington in early 2020.
“Visit a Med-Save pharmacy and you’ll see why we’re known as pharmacies ‘where everybody counts,’” McDaniel said. “We get to know our customers, and we truly care about their well-being. “
A grand opening celebration appreciation will be held on Friday, Nov.15 and Saturday, Nov. 16 from noon to 3 p.m. The event will offer an old-fashioned hot dog cart and free refreshments, a bouncy house for the kids, a drawing for a flat screen television, and other giveaways.
“It will be a fun and free activity for families. We hope lots of people will come to celebrate with us and join the Med-Save family.” McDaniel said.
