Peterson Thrifty White Drug & Gifts is a family owned business that offers a broad range of products and services. The staff prides itself on excellent customer service and the longtime community support the store provides.
Peterson Drug's pharmacy department was recently recognized for filling its one millionth new prescription and chosen as the best place in Mt. Lake to install a drop box for any unwanted or out-of-date medications.
A newer service offered by the pharmacy lets customers place a prescription order using their smart phone. Besides filling prescriptions, the pharmacists administer flu, pneumonia, shingles, whooping cough and tetanus immunizations.
The store has home medical equipment available for purchase or rental which can be billed to insurance and Medicare. Diabetic shoes are measured and fit to the customer. It also provides UPS drop-off service and a Kodak digital Picture Maker kiosk that makes reprints from photos, CDs or memory cards.
A spin rack offers a variety of gift cards, including in-store and national gift cards. In its diversified line of products, Peterson Drug offers a selection of jewelry, women's clothing and purses, Wolverine and Pow Wow attire, perfumes and cologne.
It sells makeup, skin care, hair care and dental care products as well as an assortment of vitamin and mineral supplements. Helium balloons and other party products are available for special occasions.
There is an extensive gift section and a large selection of Hallmark greeting cards. Couples can sign up for the wedding registry service which is advertised locally.
An assortment of batteries for watches, flashlights, electronically powered devices and household products are in stock. There are many other products available, such as home decor, toys and games, holiday decorations, seasonal items and a tasty assortment of candy, including Russell Stover.
"We pride ourselves on the dedicated service we provide for the community and we have always made every effort to deliver good service in all areas," Vern Peterson said. "That means making ourselves accessible to the community at all hours."
