February Message from Bill Anderson

We are now entering our 141st year of business here in Naperville. Oswald’s opened the year before Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone! Communication in this world has certainly changed over the years!

If you are reading this in it’s paper format you are in the minority of OzzieGram readers. For years, the original OzzieGram was distributed by mail to our charge account customers and handed out with prescriptions at the beginning of each month. Today, while we still distribute our newsletter as we have in the past, we also send it out to over 1000 email sub-scribers and put it up on our website.

If you haven’t signed up to receive our emails yet you can do so by visiting our website and clicking on “join our mailing list” or by just dropping your email address off at the pharmacy. In addition to sending out the e-version of the OzzieGram at the start of each month, we also send a couple of other emails a month highlighting new items,announcing sales and upcoming specials.

We are also very active on Facebook (OswaldsPharm), Twitter (OswaldsPharmacy) and we have a fun Pinterest page with all sorts of photos on it! Our new website is still being populated with new merchandise every week and is a great resource to see all that we have to offer. And don’t forget, you can request a prescription refill right from your computer, tablet or phone at www.OswaldsPharmacy.com!!


Happy soon-to-be Valentine’s Day!
