Why We Support Local Business.
We believe in contributing to our community's well-being. And you should too!
Locally owned organizations and businesses help to build and maintain strong, sustainable communities. But that's not the only reason why we choose to support local:
Keeping Decision Making Local
We are responsible for supporting the health and wellness of the community - and we take that very seriously. So, as local owners, we know that we can make important decisions relevant to the well-being of our community, with the feedback from the people in it.
Keeping Local Dollars in the Local Economy
Shop Local!! We are the only locally owned and locally operated pharmacy in Altona - this means that compared to other big chain pharmacies, local pharmacies redistribute a much larger portion of their revenue back into the local economy! This benefits the entire community by helping the economy grow.
Caring about Local Character
While we embrace the new, we still believe in the good old fashioned way - handshakes, real people answering the phone, and treating our customers as people and our neighbours. In a world where face to face interactions are becoming replaced by automated messages, and big chains often out run the little guys, we believe in preservation of small, local business, and the character they contribute to the community.
