Newly expanded store features wide product range

A doubling of the floor space in McGuinness Pharmacy in Roscommon as part of a recent refurbishment of the premises has allowed the store to carry an expanded range in terms of perfumes, a digital photo counter, jewellery, health point, men’s skincare ranges and an extensive babycare range. One new range which is set to prove particularly popular with local customers is the Christian Dior counter. McGuinness now stocks the full Christian Dior range, as well as the full La Roche Posay range and Dolce and Gabbana perfumes. The expanded premises also gives the opportunity to display a full range of perfumes. New lighting in the store and a well-designed floorspace gives the new premises a bright, airy feeling, with lots of space to browse through the various ranges.  A new digital photo counter is a central part of the new store. There are three screens and three computers available at all times, so this is a particularly busy part of the business. Old family photos can be scanned and re-worked to ensure that your ancestors are looking their best. Alternatively, you can ensure that your old photos are never lost by getting them put on CD, which means that they can be shared with others through email. If you’re wondering about the best way to display your photos, there a full range of digital photo frames, with prices starting at €99. McGuinness Pharmacy also has an extensive range of photo frames and albums. A wide range of digital cameras is also available at McGuinness. Help and advice is always available from Mary Lane, who looks after the photography section in the store. With over 30 years experience, she has a wealth of knowledge and can ensure that you get the most out of your treasured family photographs.
