The new Hy-Vee supermarket in Plattsmouth makes it debut at 6 a.m. Tuesday. But one section of the store opened today for business -- the store’s pharmacy.
Hy-Vee purchased Ruffner Pharmacy, formerly located at 506 Chicago Ave. in Plattsmouth, from owner Troy Ruffner.
All of Ruffner’s prescriptions have been transferred to the new Hy-Vee pharmacy, which is located inside the new 24-hour Hy-Vee located at 16418 Westside Drive.
"All the employees were retained and Troy Ruffner was also retained," store manager Mike Basch said. "Mr. Ruffner is the manager of the pharmacy department."
The pharmacy’s phone number remains the same 402-296-6900; pharmacy hours are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Ruffner also owned a pharmacy in Glenwood, Iowa, which Hy-Vee also purchased.
