The Mansfield / Huntington Chamber of Commerce held their regular monthly meeting last Thursday at the Mansfield City Hall. The focus was not only about the agenda, but the Pharmacies that have announced opening within the city limits.
Both Cornerstone, and Health-Wise representatives were on hand to discuss, and to state their individual plans. Both businesses are still in the planning stages, with lots to do in order to open both locations.
Cornerstone Pharmacy will offer an app that will be useful for prescriptions, awareness, and general communication, a convenient drive-thru window, a “match or beat pricing” guarantee, a wide selection of gifts, Dippin’ Dots ice cream, state of the art software that will highly benefit their patients, after hours on-call pharmacists to assist with patient needs, medicinal compounding, and plan to be highly involved in the community and its organizations.
They’re adding 20 extra parking spots to their store front for ease, and safety, and will offer promotions through their Facebook page. Hours of operation will be Mon – Fri, 8:30am – 6:30pm, and Saturday 9:00am – 2:00pm
Cornerstone will employ (2) pharmacists, (2) pharmacy techs, (2) clerks, and a summer delivery driver.
Richard Parks, from Health-Wise pharmacy, discussed some of the issues of opening in Mansfield, citing the “red tape” issues to opening not only any business, but a pharmacy. Regardless of location.
With a humble attitude, he spoke of how he is excited about opening as soon as possible, and truly hope we can be beneficial to the area residents, and community.
Planned hours are not set in stone yet, but hope to be Mon – Sat, 8:00 am – 7:00pm, with Sunday being “on call.” Health-Wise will employ (1) pharmacist, and (2) pharmacy techs.
When asked about the potential of bringing back the soda fountain that once adorned Don’s Drug, Parks stated, “we’re looking into it, and hope to have a solution soon.”
