Johnston’s Pharmacy in Lanesboro – caring for all the community

Johnston’s Pharmacy has recently announced a new, exciting partnership with All Care Pharmacy. This partnership has seen the Lanesboro store being completely transformed into a bright and easily accessible premises for the entire community.

  Owned by local man, Gareth Johnston, Johnston’s Pharmacies have gone from strength to strength. Gareth was quick to highlight the support of the local community that has been instrumental in the growth of the business. Johnston’s Lanesboro branch is the flagship store and since it opened in 2007, it has been a vital fixture in the community.

  Gareth said: “We opened our doors in Lanesboro in 2007 and the community have been extremely supportive. We aim to provide the best possible service to the entire community and we will look to continue that service into the future.”

  Gareth has since opened two more pharmacies in Ballygar and Longford town and but says that it all began Lanesboro. “It all began here after I finished my studies in Sligo, Liverpool and London and I’m delighted we’re able to offer the various services within one building. We have it all under one roof!”

  With clear labeling on shelves and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, Johnston’s All Care Pharmacy continues to serve the community of Lanesboro and surrounding areas.

  Supervising Pharmacist, Amy Oates, says that the Johnston’s team aims to provide the community with the best possible care. “We provide food allergy testing and blister packs as well as blood pressure tests and the usual services a community pharmacy provides.”

  Amy said convenience and service is key to the business. “We are part of the Medical Centre here so we are next door to Dr. Ali and the Speech and Language Centre. There’s also a physiotherapist available by appointment and Keri’s Beauty Room is upstairs so it really is one-stop shop and convenient for the local community.”

  Johnston’s All Care staff includes technicians Trish and Fiona, Alan and Jonathan at front of shop, trainee pharmacist Rizwan and Frances in HR. Each member plays a vital role in this thriving community business. Amy said: “Fiona, for example, looks to provide great deals on diet products, vitamins and health and lifestyle products.”

  Along with over the counter services the pharmacy stocks a wide range of perfumes, after-shaves and a wide range of beauty products. With Dr. Ali close by as well as Keri’s beauty and the Speech and Language Centre, which is run by Gareth’s wife Anne Marie, this truly is a one-stop shop for all your health and beauty needs in Lanesboro.
