Message from Ray’s General Store and Pharmacy Staff:
Orcas Island friends and community members, Ray’s Pharmacy RX department in Eastsound will be closed on Saturday starting this weekend, for the next two months or until we are able to hire a second Pharmacist. The non pharmacy part of the store will be open as usual.
Like so many other small businesses around the state, Ray’s General Store and Pharmacy in Eastsound is struggling to find professionals to work in the Pharmacy. Whether it is access to housing, ferry delays, or an unwillingness to commute, Ray’s is short staffed going into winter.
We have been working and looking for a second Pharmacist for the last eight months and will continue until the position is filled.
Our apologies for this inconvenience and we will do what we can to find the best Pharmacist for our community.
If anyone know a licensed pharmacist in the State of Washington, please let us know. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
