Hy-Vee Acquires Weber & Judd Pharmacies in Minnesota

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (Feb. 25, 2019) — Hy-Vee, Inc. announces today that it has acquired the business of all Weber & Judd pharmacies in Minnesota. Weber & Judd has served the Rochester, Minnesota, area since 1862.

“Weber & Judd has been an exemplary provider of pharmacy care for more than 150 years. Combining Weber & Judd with our Hy-Vee Pharmacy family is a perfect match because we both pride ourselves on providing an excellent experience to our customers,” said Randy Edeker, Hy-Vee’s chairman of the board, CEO and president. “We are grateful for the opportunity to continue to provide this same personalized care for the Weber & Judd family of patients and communities.”

Patient files will automatically transfer to Hy-Vee, and the pharmacies will be named Hy-Vee HealthMarket Rx locations. The Weber & Judd pharmacy inside the Hy-Vee Barlow Plaza location will be rebranded as a Hy-Vee pharmacy, and patient files will remain at this location.

In addition to traditional pharmacy services, Hy-Vee HealthMarket Rx locations feature text message notifications, free prescription delivery, automated refill ordering, immunization services, free blood pressure checks, private medication consultations and a registered dietitian available for nutritional consultations. Generic prescriptions are available for as low as $4 for a 30-day supply or $10 for a 90-day supply. 

Hy-Vee pharmacies are also integrated into the free Hy-Vee mobile app for both iOS and Android devices for easy prescription management. 

Weber & Judd pharmacy patients will receive a letter from their new Hy-Vee pharmacy with additional details. We anticipate Weber & Judd employees will continue working at their respective locations as Hy-Vee employees.

The dates when each Weber & Judd location will reopen as a Hy-Vee HealthMarket Rx location, or prescriptions will transfer, are listed below.
