Domain Name Information
The domain name has been registered since 2007 and that is a pretty long time when it comes to online pharmacies. This shows that they are far more likely to be a safe drugstore with a successful record of helping patients.
We are also able to see that this domain is registered to someone in Tennessee, US. Some less than reputable online pharmacies use domain privacy to hide their contact information, so this is good to find that the owner of this drugstore isn’t doing that.
Business Contact Details
The pharmacy locations are based around the Knoxville area of Tennessee, USA. They operate four retail stores and they provide contact information clearly on the site.
Checking on these we can see that they are genuine retail premises for the pharmacy at the addresses provided.
They tell us on the site that they are a family run business that has been around for a long time. The about page lets us know that the business was started over 50 years ago.
This business is based in the state of Tennessee and therefore should be registered with the Board of Pharmacy for Tennessee. When we go to the site and run a search we find that all of their stores are correctly registered.
Their first store, located on North Broadway has been registered since 1965 but has had one disciplinary action against them. This was to do with not providing a pharmacist consultation and this happened in 2016. They don’t have any current disciplinary actions against their businesses. This regulatory approval does confirm their claim of having been in business since 1965 which is a good sign that this is a legit drugstore.
Along with the normal services you would expect from a pharmacy, they have some others that you may have heard of. This includes a compounding service to make pills more effective for individuals’ needs, automatic refills and dosage packaging so you don’t mix up your pills. Other slightly out of the ordinary services include:
- Free vitamins
- Pet compounding
As well as the compounding medication service, they offer the normal prescription drugs that you would expect. They particularly promote CBD oils and men’s health drugs on the site. They sell brand name meds, but also offer generic alternatives which are cheaper for the patient.
They do need you to have a valid prescription in order to get the drugs you want from the pharmacy. They require that the original copy of the prescription is handed to them when you go to collect your medication.
Payment and Shipping
Payment can be made through most major insurance plans as well as credit cards. While you can request prescriptions through the site they will take payment when you collect the drugs.
Free shipping is offered in the local area from their Broadway location. If you are outside of a 3-mile radius you will be out of luck for free delivery. All of this means that this pharmacy is only really going to be an option for people living in or near the Knoxville area of Tennessee.
BelewDrugs.com reviews can be found on the company’s Facebook page and customers seem to be mostly happy with the service they are provided. They have an overall rating of 4.4 out of 5 from 30 customer reviews.
In particular, people appear to be very happy with the staff and customer service they receive from their pharmacists. Typical of their customer feedback is this comment.
This pharmacy has quite a lot to offer its customers with a wide range of services to better help people and cater to individual needs. They are correctly regulated and have been operating as a family business since the mid-1960s.
However, there are a couple of small problems which mean we don’t give them full marks. They are not able to process orders completely online and the pharmacy is only really going to be useful if you are local to them. We give them 4 stars out of 5.
