Domain Name Information
Every website uses a domain name which has associated records that anyone can search through. Looking at the records for this website domain we can see that it has been registered since 2009. This is quite a long time for a pharmacy to have been in business and this indicates to us that they are more likely to be a legit business than an unreliable rip off the store.
There are some details about the business which registered the site also found in the records. It tells us that the website address is registered to a company called “New Tech Computer Systems” who are based in Louisiana, USA.
This isn’t the name of the business we were expecting so we check further. We find that “New Tech Computer Systems” is a software business which publishes pharmacy software. They provide services to pharmacies to help them streamline their business and remove hassles of running an online pharmacy site.
Business Contact Details
They provide two addresses for their business on the site. Checking these we can see that they are legit business locations.
The Picayune Drug Company has been in business since 1903 and is still based at the same location in the town. The site provides more information about the business, telling us that the current owner purchased the company in 1997 after working there for 10 years. This all indicates that they are more likely to be a safe pharmacy to put your trust in.
This pharmacy is located in Mississippi and therefore they should be registered with the board of pharmacy for that state. A check with the Mississippi Board of Pharmacy shows that they are registered as they should be.
Their registration dates back to 1998 and they don’t have any disciplinary sanctions on their file. This shows them to likely be a safe place to purchase medication.
You can order refills on the store. You are going to need a valid prescription in order to get a refill on the site. This is as it should be for this pharmacy to be legally approved by the board of pharmacy.
The owners of the pharmacy business also own “Failla’s Vital Care” which is a complementary business to the drugstore. It provides home infusion services, which include compounding intravenous medications and providing nursing assistance to help patients.
Payment and Shipping
The main part of the pharmacy site isn’t secure but when you go to the refill section there is security. This means your information can’t be intercepted when you fill out their forms. They don’t accept payment on the site and you will need to pay either over the phone to the pharmacist or in person when you collect the drugs.
Same day delivery is available if you order before noon. This is only for people living in the local area, within the city limits of Picayune. They don’t provide information about how much they charge for this delivery service if they do in fact charge. If you are local to the area they do offer a drive-thru service to pick up your pills without getting out of your car if that is easier.
PicayuneDrug.com reviews are difficult to find for this store. There is one testimonial on the Facebook page for the store, there is rather a major problem with this feedback, however.
If the name of the customer sounds familiar, you wouldn’t be mistaken. We mentioned that this pharmacy was related to a business called “Failla’s Vital Care” and the surname of the poster is Failla. This isn’t a coincidence, it is the owner of the pharmacy reviewing his own business. This is clearly a fake testimonial and doesn’t provide any insight into how well the business operates.
This seems to be a business with a long and successful history behind it. They have the correct regulation for them to be legal for where they operate and it is a business which has been operating in the local area for a very long time.
There are some minor downsides with this pharmacy, however. They don’t have any genuine feedback that we could find and their service is only available if you are in the local area. We award 4 stars to this Mississippi pharmacy.
