Scott Reef learned early on how to treat customers. While working at a local pharmacy at 17-years-old, he found the path to success was learning about your customers. That way, he could make suitable recommendations for their health.
“Not only is it good for business, it’s the right thing to do,” he stated.
Reef continues that philosophy at Reef Family Pharmacy, which he and wife Amy opened in 2009.
"I really enjoy the interaction with the patients and trying to help them feel better. It’s what I find rewarding about this business.”
After earning a Bachelor of Science at Temple University, Reef worked for Rite Aid and CVS. In 2002, he opened a franchise of the Medicap Pharmacy in Cape May Court House.
When the Medicine Shoppe acquired the franchise, Scott canceled his franchise agreement.
“We had gone from a small family-owned franchise, where everyone knew your name, to a corporation,” stated Reef. “It changed the whole culture. I wanted to bring back that personal touch to my patients.”
The couple opened Reef Family Pharmacy at the same location in Cape May Court House. He manages the medical portion of the business, while Amy manages the books and merchandising.
Reef Family Pharmacy carries a full range of over-the-counter medications, as well as personal grooming and healthcare supplies.
While working with prescriptions, Reef takes his time with each patient. Consultations are free, with no appointment needed. There is also free prescription delivery throughout Cape May County. You can also re-order prescriptions from their website.
