CVS Pharmacy, Inc.,
a subsidiary of CVS
Health Corporation, and
Schnucks
announced
Tuesday they have entered into a definitive
agreement for CVS
Pharmacy to acquire
Schnuck Markets Inc.’s
retail and specialty
pharmacy businesses.
Through this agreement, CVS Pharmacy
and its subsidiaries will
acquire and operate 99
of the grocer’s pharmacies and will brand them
as CVS Pharmacy.
Additionally,
CVS
Pharmacy and its subsidiaries will acquire the
prescription files from
11 Schnucks pharmacies and transfer them
to nearby CVS Pharmacy locations.
“We have great admiration for Schnucks
and believe CVS Pharmacy can bring additional clinical services
to its customers,” said
Jon Roberts, executive
vice president and chief
operating officer, CVS
Health.
“One of CVS Health’s
strategic
imperatives
is to be local,” Roberts said. “By opening
CVS Pharmacy locations within Schnucks
stores, we’re increasing
access to high-quality
care and meeting customers where they are.
Schnucks is a best-inclass grocer and we’re
honored to partner with
them to bring our bestin-class pharmacy capabilities to their customers.”
In 2014, CVS Pharmacy became the first
and only major retail
pharmacy to remove tobacco from its shelves.
Schnucks stores became

tobacco free as of Jan. 1,
2020.
Schnucks’
decision
to exit tobacco further
aligns the company with
CVS Health.
“As Schnucks continues to expand our emphasis on health and
wellness, this collaboration with CVS is an opportunity for us to align
with a company that has
a similar focus,” said
Todd Schnuck, chairman and chief executive
officer of Schnucks.
“This partnership allows us to continue to
provide quality pharmacy services to our
customers in a manner they’ve come to expect, while supporting
our mission to nourish
people’s lives,” Schnuck
said. “It also provides
our pharmacy teammates an opportunity
to further their careers
with a premier retail
pharmacy chain.”
To provide continuity for Schnucks pharmacy customers, CVS
Pharmacy will post all
pharmacist and pharmacy technician positions, and will interview
all Schnucks employees
who apply.
In-store
changes
will be rolled out over
a period of several
months after the completion of the transaction as CVS Pharmacy and Schnucks
work to ensure the
smoothest
possible
transition
for
all
pharmacy patients.
Schnucks Specialty
pharmacy patients will
benefit from CVS Specialty’s expertise in providing ongoing disease
education,
counseling
and benefits verification,

as well as coordination
of care with multiple
health care providers,
comprehensive patient
education and adherence management.
Following
completion of the transaction,
all Schnucks pharmacy
customers will have access to CVS Pharmacy’s
leading pharmacy care
programs, features of
which include:
Opportunities for patients to manage their
health with more ease
and efficiency and gain
access to programs that
help them start and stay
on their prescriptions
while reducing overall
health care costs. With
the CVS Pharmacy app,
patients can be notified
when prescriptions are
ready for pickup and order refills digitally.
Simplification
of
medication
management for patients with
multiple prescriptions,
through the utilization
of the CVS Pharmacy
ScriptPath Prescription
Schedule, a tool that
provides a complete picture of the patient’s current CVS Pharmacy prescription information all
in one place, including
the name of each medication, when to take it,
and how much medication to take in each dose.
The transaction is expected to be completed
by end of the second
quarter and is subject to
customary closing conditions.
In 2015, CVS Health
Corporation bought Target’s 1,672 pharmacies
and clinic businesses
for about $1.9 billion
and operates them as a
store-within-a-store format.

For the last seven years
she has worked under
Jim Feighery.
Career
Unnerstall said she
focused her career on
helping people with insurance, rather than
just selling.
“What I have done
has been very rewarding,” she said. “Life and
health insurance have
been the biggest things
I have sold, and to sell
someone a life insurance
policy and be able to tell
their family they are
taken care after their
death is a good feeling.”
Feighery said he’s
grateful to have been
able to work with Unnerstall.
“For someone to do
her job for so long is just
a blessing,” Feighery
said. “This job is not for

To Reopen

Joan Unnerstall will
retire March 27 from
State Farm in Washington, after 47 years of
service.
Unnerstall has dedicated her professional
career to helping others
and ensuring they have
the resources they need
in a moment of crisis.
Unnerstall said she
always wanted to be a
secretary, so after graduating from St. Francis
Borgia Regional High
School in 1972, she attended East Central
College for one year and
received her secretarial
certificate.
“After I got my certificate, the college had job
placement. State Farm
had an opening and it
sounded
interesting,”
she said. “Little did I
know I would still be
here 47 years later.”
She started working
for the company in May
of 1973, when it was
owned by Bob and Vern
Tobben. During her first
few years there, she attended night school and
earned an associate degree from ECC and obtained an insurance license for home and auto.
When the Tobbens retired 23 years later she
continued to work for
State Farm under the
new insurance agent,
Matt Tobben. Unner-
