I recently returned Giant Eagle Pharmacy. A terrible mistake. On Dec 03 2022, my physician called in a prescription for a quality of 60 pills and in tablet form. I was originally told that they didn’t have in stock. Then they stated they had 29 tablets. If I took those I would forfeit the remaining 31, I asked why, they stated Ohio Law. I reached out to Board of Pharmacy to ask if true. The investigator assigned to this stated if a pharmacy can only fill a partial even if it is classified as a level 2, as long as pharmacy got the remaining within 30 days of prescription being written they were allowed to fill. The investigator also stated Giant Eagle on Groveport have been made aware.
When I called back I spoke to manager Amy, she told me I can place calls to Ohio State Board of Pharmacy and Attorney General offices if I wish, and I would need to find a pharmacy that can better suit my needs. However she did state the medication was on long term back order. I have called other Giant Eagle pharmacies that have the tablets however Giant Eagle is refusing to transfer per their policy. I called this am to see if they had my medication in stock. The technician confirmed the Medication was there. I told him I needed remainder. He got the pharmacist and then I was told they didn’t have it, even though my cousin literally was sitting in drive through picking up their same medication. They are deceitful and condescending.
When I asked about what they charged my insurance Amy the pharmacy manager said, "Your state insurance? We billed for 29 they gave me." When I asked where does the remainder 31 go she said it’s absorbed. I have never been through so much issues. So instead of seeing my Dr. once this month I have to go back in a few days all because they are difficult because I followed up with AG and OSBP. I have been discriminated against because I followed up with how the law is written. I have to take my medicine daily and been trying to stretch to make last but it’s not working as it should. Shame on Giant Eagle in Groveport for putting an senior citizen through this.
Worst pharmacy ever. They’re always messing up my prescriptions and they do not care if that gets me sick or not. Their Pharmacist Eli will hang up on you after telling you that it isn’t their problem.

I have used many different pharmacies over the last few decades. My fave of last 10 years has been Giant Eagle. Always answer phone. Always get rx correct and friendly clerks. Prices are reasonable too.
The pharmacist does extra work to get the "authorized generic" for me, and G.E always gives me a discount on this expensive prescription.
I went to pick up a script at Giant Eagle Pharmacy in West Mifflin pa. On mountain view Dr. The cost was going to be $87.00 and the same script the month before was $27.00. I ask why so much and they said it's their cost. I refused the script and did some research and found GoodRx coupon online. I returned and used goodrx and they dropped the price to $37.00. I accepted that but found that the Giant Eagle two miles away charge $27.00 for the same script with the goodrx coupon. That is a $60.00 difference from the original price and I pay $1850.00 for my insurance every month and that includes prescription coverage. All I can say is GoodRX works and don't trust your pharmacy.
Giant Eagle supermarket is a clean store with varied selections. Their pharmacy is rarely out of medicines unlike some other chain stores. They are fully stocked for sales. Often Kroger's store is out of items shown in circular.
My Giant pharmacy located in Reston Virginia lost a script that my home health aide handed them. If that wasn't bad enough they fill two of my scripts that they have not had in their possession for over six months. Each were filled for 90 days which really screws up my pill pack and I did not know my latest pill pack boxes did not have my medications. I got severe chest pains and others really bad symptoms because I have a bad heart and high blood pressure because they did this and I was not aware of it. Because I am mobility-impaired and I rely upon others for assistance. Run do not walk away from this Pharmacy and any Giant Supermarket pharmacies. Be careful. Know what you have, know what has been filled and if somebody else does it for you recheck it at least once a week - signed... Not dead yet... but heart is in agony.
I use Giant Eagle Pharmacy to fill my prescription based on Insurance requirements. I was advised via the automated system that my prescription was ready. Due to the location I am not able to easily get there. I received another call on a Thursday and went to get the prescription on Tuesday to find out there is no prescription there for me and they cannot locate. It may have been put back on the shelf I was told as they hold them for only 12 days. I have not problem with this practice except for the fact that this information was never disclosed to me as the Customer. The automated system should indicate that there is a prescription and advise of an expiration date.
I spent over 1/2 hour at the drive through attempting to get my prescription filled. The employees were nice and my complaint is not against them, it is against the practices of Giant Eagle. Any company should be fair to their customers and treat them as such. Advising me that there is a prescription for me to only find out that there was not is deceitful. This practice needs re-examined. It is extremely difficult to file a complaint with Giant Eagle as well. The number on the prescription bag asks you to fill out a survey- I don't want to fill out a survey, I want to file a complaint. The message on the number tells you to contact them on www.gianteagle.com/contactus, which gives you the same number or allows you to view your account or fill out a survey.
Nowhere does it state where you can file a complaint. Feedback from consumers is very important and there should be an easier way to provide this. I finally spoke with a woman and aired my concern on the practice of not disclosing Giant Eagle's procedures/practices to their consumers and advising them incorrectly via a phone message. We shall see if anything comes of it. Also, I am unable to use mail prescriptions due to dosage changes for medical reasons. Hopefully they will disclosure properly to consumers in the future.
I have used Giant Eagle most of my life because that is who my parents used. They have been fine until recently. I currently go to the Giant Eagle Pharmacy on Cochran/Greentree road in Pittsburgh. First issue I have had lately is they don’t have the medication I need and they have to order it. Which isn’t totally annoying because I know not to show up at the pharmacy. But lately after l show up to pick up my medication there is a reason why I can’t receive it or that I will have to wait longer. Not billing my insurance right so then they have to recount everything (their protocol); they didn’t order enough which means I can only receive a 5 day supply and come back another day when they get more of the medicine; or they have filled it but have not looked at my account to see whatever questions they may have for my dr. As you all know doctors can’t just be reached immediately so that means I go home and wait for them to get their affairs in order again.
Meanwhile during this whole process the head pharmacist is very rude and sends some intern to deliver any bad news so they don’t have to deal with it. For anyone who relies on their medication (such as a diabetic) to the point of hospitalization if you don’t receive it; I would not recommend this pharmacy. I will definitely be switching my pharmacy ASAP.
My doctor suggested this company to save money. Well, it may be cheaper than local pharmacy costs, but the hassle and frustration is not worth it. It took forever for them to get straight that I wanted autoship, despite my signing up online for that and calling them to do so more than once, so I had to pay for higher shipping to get my medication in time. Second nightmare - the medication began to get lost in the mail, showing up weeks later. Thirdly, since I was on autoship (FINALLY), they contacted my doctor and got an out of date prescription and kept filling it with the out of date Rx after he changed it - and after the expiration date should have come and gone. So now, I have two prescriptions I cannot use and I'm out money since they don't take anything unopened back. Calling to try to block them from charging my card yet again. Horrible experience. Buyer beware!! The money saved is certainly NOT worth the hassle, frustration and expense.
