Reef Family Pharmacy will be moving to a new, larger location this summer, with twice as much parking and a pharmacy drive-through. The new location at 1037 Route 9, Cape May Court House, is just half a mile from their current address.
“It was clear at our current location that we could use more space,” said Scott Reef, owner and pharmacist. “We were maxed out in terms of the number of customers we could serve, and products we could carry. In addition, we were limited in parking. We had to make the choice whether we were content to stay at that volume, or if we wanted to grow. We are a community-driven business, and ultimately decided that we wanted to grow to be able to better serve our community.”
At 3,000 square feet, the new store will offer an additional 1,100 square feet, as well as double the parking at 16 versus the original eight spots. In addition, because of its corner location, the new site offers easy access and an improved traffic flow on and off of Route 9.
“Importantly, the new location will be the only pharmacy in Cape May Court House with a drive-through,” noted Scott. “Plus, the expanded space allows us to offer products and services that we simply can’t in our current location.”
The new store will feature a home healthcare section with wheelchairs, shower chairs, walkers and more. There will be a brand new counseling room where patients may consult with the pharmacists. The Reefs also will pay homage to local vendors with a “local flavor” section featuring such items as Cape May Sea Salt, Busy Bees Honey, homemade dog biscuits, soaps, candles, CBD oils and creams, and more.
“We are a community business, and this helps us celebrate other local businesses that are part of our community,” said Scott.
Always staying ahead of the curve, Reef Pharmacy continues to add the services that make it more convenient for customers. The business is launching a new state-of-the-art website featuring wellness “classes” via video on topics from smoking to diabetes and more. They also recently introduced a new, free Reef Family Pharmacy mobile app to refill prescriptions and access discounts.
“We live in a 24/7 society where online access is key,” said Scott. “We decided to harness that technology to make it even easier for our customers to refill their prescriptions, at any time, day or night. It’s just one more way that we can provide unparalleled service for our customers’ needs.”
While the new store will be bigger, customers can count on the same personal touch for which Reef Family Pharmacy is known. “That’s our hallmark,” Scott noted. “When you stop by the store, you’re part of the family. Our new location will allow us to bring more customers into our family, and we look forward to it.”
The move is scheduled to occur in late June or early July 2019, just months before the business’ tenth anniversary in October. There will be a Grand Opening scheduled this summer.
