Como Pharmacy Recognized With Customer Commitment Award

como logoThe Minnesota Retailers Association is pleased to recognize Como Pharmacy with its Customer Commitment award as part of the 2021 Minnesota’s Retail Champions program.

“The team at Como Pharmacy has been doing everything they can this past year to make sure their customers have been served, despite so many challenges,” says Bruce Nustad, Minnesota Retailers Association president. “Their customers depend on them for quality-of-life and in many cases lifesaving medications, and Pao Kue and his very small team have bent over backwards to make sure everyone gets what they need. From curbside, to in-store, to free home delivery, Como Pharmacy has gone well beyond what most people would expect to see—that’s true customer commitment. It’s an honor to recognize the Como Pharmacy team for their outstanding commitment to customers.”

“Our customers, some of which are elderly or non-english speakers, have really needed us to be there for them,” says Pao Kue, pharmacist and owner of Como Pharmacy in St. Paul. “I am proud of the work of the team here and their commitment to making sure every customer gets their medications. Running a neighborhood pharmacy today is difficult, but we do it for our neighbors and our community. We know we are making a difference in so many lives”.  

Como Pharmacy is the sole recipient of the Minnesota’s Retail Champions Customer Commitment award. Eight other organizations will be recognized in other categories such as Retail Employee of the Year, Social Responsibility, Retail Innovation, Best Place to Work, Lifetime Achievement, Retail Community of the Year, Advocate of the Year, and Retailer of the Year.

Pao Kue will accept the award during the Retail Rally event on Tuesday, October 5, 2021, beginning at 2:00 p.m. in Golden Valley The event features six 20-minute practical, game-changing, cutting-edge retail innovations strategies and ideas.
