Pharmabox Rolls Out Automated Drugstore, Filling Void In Underserved Communities

By | May 4, 2015

MIAMI — Pharmabox Inc. said it’s shipping the first of its first self-service kiosks that carry more than 140 items typically found in a local pharmacy. Pharmabox creator and company chief executive Alejandro Rodríguez Espinoza said he wanted to find a way to get name-brand products into communities that are underserved by brick and mortar stores. After two years of research and development, the Pharmabox was born.


Pharmabox reportedly offers well-known personal care products and over-the-counter medicines at the same or lower prices than those found at most stores. Featured brands include Tylenol, Vicks, Advil, Ben Gay, Pepto Bismol, Colgate, Gillette, Tampax and Band-Aid.
