Domain Name Information
The domain name database shows us that this site address was registered back in 1999. Sites which are using older domains are more likely to be safe and reliable stores in our experience, so this is a good thing to find.
The registrant contact information gives the business name Vow Inc. from South Carolina, US. This business name also appears in the footer of the pharmacy and seems to be providing the web hosting for the drugstore.
This drugstore gives the copyright date as 2019, but the rest of the site seems to be from a different era. There is a blog within the site but this hasn’t received any updates since 2012. They link to a Facebook page, but this seems to have been long since closed down.
The design of the site is rather outdated too, not using more interactive and customer friendly designs which are found on most modern stores.
There is a form on the pharmacy site which can be used to update your patient information. You can add details such as allergies and health conditions. While this might appear to be a good thing and on the face of it, sure, but there is a significant issue with this form and others on the site. They are not using an SSL certificate to make sure your data is encrypted, this leaves the potential for you data to be copied by an unscrupulous third party when you submit the form.
When checking on the contact and about pages of the site we can see that they have been operating from three locations in Savannah, Georgia, US. They also say that they have been operating as a business for over 35 years.
However, while their site says they operate from three locations, our research shows otherwise. A check with Google Maps reveals that they are currently only operating one of these stores, with the other two seemingly having been closed down in the last few years.
Their Midtown location is still an active pharmacy store and this shows that their site requires more of an update than we first realized.
A check with the Georgia Board of Pharmacy shows that they have one current active license for the operation of their drugstore.
This is good to find and shows that they are a legit pharmacy which is operating following the rules for the state they are based.
You are able to order prescription refills from the site for collection from their Midtown store. However, since they still give you the option to collect from the stores which no longer exist and haven’t for several years, it is difficult to be sure if this form actually works.
They also talk of compounding services which can flavor your meds to suit your tastes. Though since the rest of the store hasn’t been updated when things within the business have changed, we can’t be sure if this is still a service which they offer.
Something they do offer on the site, which does work, is the ability to search for more information about medications. This sends you to another site which gives detailed information and videos about meds you would like to know more about.
Payment and Shipping
This store doesn’t allow you to make purchases directly online and doesn’t offer a delivery service. You can request refills but you will need to collect them and pay for them in their retail store.
There are some LoCostPharmacy.com reviews from customers on the Google business listing. These show that the pharmacy seems to be liked by most of its customers with an overall rating of 4.3 out of 5.
These testimonials seem to be from genuine customers and suggest that this is a safe pharmacy to use.
While the business behind this online pharmacy is legit, there are a number of problems with their website. They lack an SSL certificate which should be a basic requirement for an online store and the website hasn’t been kept up to date.
