Kwik Shop considers adding pharmacies

kwikWICHITA — Kwik Shop, the convenience store chain owned by Kroger, is contemplating adding pharmacies to its stores.

“I think that sounds interesting,” says president Jeff Parker.

That doesn’t mean, though, that it’s going to happen.

“We have looked at a lot of things like that,” Parker says.

He’s also checked into a Kroger convenience store chain in Florida that has one location with a pharmacy.

But at this point, he’s still in the consideration stage. Parker doesn’t have a timetable that he wants to make a decision by.

“We don’t have any kind of definitive schedule or anything like that.”
