MP Guy Lauzon helps proprietor cut ribbon on ‘Pharmasave’ number two

LONG SAULT — This community celebrated the opening of a new pharmacy June 10.

It’s the second  ‘Pharmasave’ outlet for proprietor Bryan Haley, who has operated a pharmacy in neighbouring Ingleside since 2010.

Located in a renovated storefront at the Long Sault Plaza (43 Long Sault Drive), the new pharmacy is a full 1,000 square feet larger than its South Stormont forerunner.

Haley explained it was the presence of two retirement homes in Long Sault that helped drive the decision to expand into Long Sault. The enterprise also offers a free delivery service in South Stormont for a growing senior clientele. “We will also deliver outside South Stormont on a case-by-case basis,” he adds.

MP Guy Lauzon  took part in the official opening, presenting a federal scroll to mark the occasion.

The new Long Sault Pharmasave occupies all 4,000 square feet of what was the Stokefire gift shop. Operations began with a “soft opening” last month.

Haley’s first pharmacy, in Ingleside, also underwent a fairly recent renovation involving a move into that community’s former doctors’ office building in late 2014.
