Walgreens Bought Brookshire Pharmacies: What You Need to Know

Walgreens pharmacy

If you use Brookshire Grocery Pharmacies to fill prescriptions, Walgreens’ recent purchase of the chain will affect you. The Brookshire pharmacies included in the buyout are Super 1 and Brookshire Fresh pharmacies in Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas. (Note: Brookshire Brothers pharmacies were not included in the sale.) 

While most impacted pharmacies are being converted to Walgreens, a few of the locations will close. The pharmacy likely has or soon will, contact you directly if you are currently getting medicines at a location that is closing. Prescriptions at closing pharmacies will be transferred to a nearby Walgreens retail pharmacy. 

Based on your previous Brookshire pharmacies medication fills, here are changes you may experience:

30-day FillsPrescription bottles

  • 30-day fills at a Brookshire pharmacy converting to Walgreens, continue to use Walgreens pharmacy
  • 30-day fills from a Brookshire pharmacy that is closing, prescriptions automatically transfer to a nearby Walgreens 

90-day Fills

  • If getting 90-day fills from a Brookshire pharmacy converting to Walgreens, you will not be able to receive a 90-day fill from the Walgreens pharmacy
  • You may choose to transfer to another network pharmacy for 90-day prescriptions or switch to mail order

NOTE:  The cost could change for 30 and 90-day medications. You may choose to transfer your prescriptions to a convenient FirstChoice network pharmacy which could be more cost-effective.

Southern Scripts (now Liviniti) can answer questions and help with this transition.
