SHERMAN - When most people visit the grocery store they are worried about what they will have for dinner.

Sahir Sarvaiya was worried about how to lower the costs of prescriptions for people with no insurance.

Sarvaiya is the owner of Sherman Pharmacy, which is located at 105 W. Main St., Sherman. He has started a new monthly budgeted payment plan for customers who don't have medical insurance. Sarvaiya said if he gets enough people to be a part of the payment program, he will be able to ''slash'' the costs of the prescriptions even lower.
