Two Pharmacy by Reid Kimmett, Operations Manager
In 1989 my Mom & Dad took a chance. After moving their young family to the town of Cochrane, they purchased Cochrane Drugs. That decision has shaped every day of mine, and my siblings; Taylor and Lindsay’s, life since. We grew up in, and around, “the store”. No hockey road trip or family vacation was ever complete until we stopped at “the store” on the way home for my Dad to make sure things were in order. Evenings often saw the home phone ring with someone in need of help after hours, so Dad would head down to the pharmacy. Christmas Eve dinners were known to start a little late, as Dad would work so that his staff would be able to be home with their families. This is really what the name change from Grand Avenue Pharmacy to Two Pharmacy is about. All of these lessons at “the store” from our parents and their amazing staff. How to care. How to work hard. How to be there for a person in need. How to listen to and connect with someone. How to support the community that supports you.
The concept of Two Pharmacy is simple – Two people’s health will benefit from every transaction; yours, and through our charitable partners the health of a child in need locally or internationally. Our Grand Rebranding Celebration and sale is this Saturday, January 14 at 11 am – see you at “THE STORE!”
