Who We AreSankofa Pharmacy is a family-owned and operated pharmacy which seeks to cater to the needs of the people of Five Points and surrounding Areas.
ConvenienceWe are conveniently located right across from the post office and steps away from Citizen's Bank and a couple of other businesses. If you are unable to drop off your prescription in person, we will pick it up for you, fill it and return it to your doorstep.
Your doctor may also either call in your prescription or send us a fax. And if you would like to transfer your prescriptions from another pharmacy, please just let us know. Call us and we will take care of it for you. We are accessible by SEPTA bus routes 70 and 18.
We are a one-stop pharmacy for confvenience shopping on the 7200 block of Rising Sun, so stop in if you happen to be in the neighborhood. We will be more than happy to get to know you and show you around the pharmacy.
Affordable PrescriptionsAt Sankofa Pharmacy we understand that times are tough. That is why we try to keep our overhead costs low and to maintain prices that are affordable to our customers. We are a small pharmacy so we can afford to do that. We accept all major insurance plans, Medicare, as well as all Medicaid plans (Keystone, Mercy, Health Partners and Americhoice). We also accept PACE for seniors. We have initiated a $5 copay program for a select list of generics. Call us at 215-268-3426 for more information on how to get enrolled in that program and start saving on your prescriptions today.
RespectWe value you as a customer and treat you with the utmost respect. Unlike most big retail pharmacies where you are treated more like a number as opposed to an individual, here at Sankofa Pharmacy, we strive to develop a personal ongoing relationship with you the customer. We will make it a point to get to know you as a friend. We respect your privacy and we will not bother you with unnecessary phone calls during the weekends or force prescriptions on you. You will only get a friendly reminder call whenever your prescription is ready. Our goal here at Sankofa is to practice pharmacy the way it was meant to be practiced, like the mom and pop stores back in the day.
