Businesses use creative measures to serve customers yet be safe

Area businesses deemed essential are coping with the coronavirus health crisis. Two local pharmacies are coping with coronavirus while still serving their customers.
Brumfield Drugs, has closed the store’s lobby to customers as a precaution against spreading the disease. However, the store is open daily for business taking prescriptions and refills electronically and by telephone.
Medical providers are faxing or emailing new prescriptions to Brumfield’s from their offices. After customers have completed their doctor’s appointment, they’ll need to telephone the drug store at 876-3665 to see if they’ve communicated with the doctor’s office and to check on the time the prescription or refills will be available for pickup.
Customers will need to arrive at the store at the time of anticipated pickup and call Brumfield’s at 876-3665 to let them know you have arrived and are parked either out front near the main entrance, or in back of the store close to the rear entrance. A Brumfield’s staffer will meet you at your car with your medications.
“By using this method of pickup and delivery we are able to provide the needed medications to our customers and offer them a measure of protection against the coronavirus,” said owners Thad and Jennifer Thomas.
Tylertown Pharmacy is also taking precautions for customer safety while still offering services.
Owner Leland Sumrall says customers can call in refills and any over the counter medications needed to 601-222-1700 and use their convenient drive-thru for pickup. Same holds true for prescriptions. Have them faxed, emailed or phoned in and they’ll be brought to the drive-up when you arrive at the pharmacy, right across from the hospital at 201 Hospital Drive.
