ABOUT HANCOCK'S PHARMACY

Hancock’s is a full service pharmacy and surgical supply center. Located at 840 East Main Street in Meriden, Connecticut, the facility has been serving the area since 1959. Over the years, the pharmacy has gone through several expansions and renovations, but one thing has never changed: Customer service is a priority at Hancock’s.

The 25,000 square-foot building allows the firm to provide a wide variety of products and services to the public. Hancock’s offers much more than customary pharmaceutical services. We have expanded our home care department to include durable medical equipment, ostomy, diabetic specialties, and statewide delivery with our own radio-dispatched fleet of cars and vans. Delivery service through a fleet of 24 company-owned vehicles runs from 7 AM to 1 AM for customer convenience. Additionally, a second offsite location allows for continued service in the event of an emergency. Employing over 100 people, Hancock’s has a state-of-the-art pharmacy department serving both retail and long-term care facilities throughout Connecticut.

An informational leaflet regarding your medication is provided with every prescription dispensed. In addition, Hancock’s offers Pharmacy and Drug Awareness programs for the community and med certification classes, which are offered at the facility at no extra charge under the current standards.

Hancock’s believes in patronizing area businesses, so all of the store’s renovations and expansions, including the recent expansion involving the rear property, were completed by local contractors.

Hancock’s has served the community well since Stanley Hancock opened the store and continues today. Customer satisfaction is key at Hancock’s.
