Ohio’s Discount Drug Mart partners with Nexxus

DANVERS, Massachusetts (July 11, 2013) — Discount Drug Mart, Inc. of Ohio is the latest company to partner with The Nexxus Group, an industry-leading provider of Scan Based Trading solutions. The Nexxus Group will employ its proprietary Scan Based Trading solution at 72 Discount Drug Mart locations throughout Ohio. The program takes effect Monday, October 7.

Parviz Boodjeh founded Discount Drug Mart in 1969 in Elyria, OH with a single store and a one-stop shopping concept that remains today. Mr. Boodjeh remains involved in day-to-day operations 44 years later, serving as Chairman and CEO. The company opened its newest store in Brunswick Hills, OH in early May and has annual revenue of $550 million.

Discount Drug Mart, Inc. prides itself on being a good community partner and is involved in many charitable initiatives across the state. Its stores are open 365 days a year, including half-days on Christmas and Thanksgiving.

“We are very excited about the efficiencies that our program will bring to Discount Drug Mart,” says Mark Landgren, CEO of Nexxus Group. “We look forward to working with such a growth-minded company with such a long and storied history and commitment to the community.”
