Kavanagh’s Pharmacy in Enniscorthy Co Wexford is the latest pharmacy to the Haven Pharmacy Group
On the 22nd February 2019, Kavanagh’s Enniscorthy launched their newly branded pharmacy which offers a diverse product range, health services & screenings and promotions as well as outstanding customer service. “We’ve been operating in our local community for almost 30 years now but now as part of the wider Haven Pharmacy Group we can share knowledge, best practice, latest thinking and buying power. Pharmacy consumers expectations are far greater now” said pharmacist and owner Dermot Kavanagh “and we are happy that we will continue to meet, and even exceed, those expectations in Enniscorthy.”
Celebrations kicked off with South East FM Radio broadcasting live from the pharmacy, with DJ Tony Scott interviewing Dermot Kavanagh and staff members Louise O’Connor and Jayne Balfe. There was great banter among staff and customers as Tony also interviewed Frank O’Connor and Ivy Dillane – loyal customers of Kavanaghs Pharmacy since it first opened back in 1990.
Louise O’Connor spoke about how she has been working for Dermot & Mary Kavanagh since she was 17 and how they are the best to work for “they are so caring and compassionate in everything they do for their staff and customers. I recommend to anyone who has not been here before to pop in to us and become a friend” – customers become friends in Kavanaghs Enniscorthy and that doesn’t change now they have become part of the Haven Pharmacy group.
“The same great staff here will continue to work here serving the local customer they know best. Our name will continue to be a very relevant part of who we are and our role in the community. This is an important next step in how we evolve and develop with Haven Pharmacy, a name which is synonymous with expert, professional healthcare, delivered locally – always offering great value, a varied product range and exciting new services to local pharmacy customers all over Ireland” continued Dermot.
As customers passed through the doors, the staff of Kavanaghs knew the name of every customer and their children – who enjoyed face painting by Shine Bright Theatre and received party bags as the radio played their favourite requests. But it wasn’t just the children who were treated – everyone enjoyed an array of sweet & savoury treats catered by Kilcannons of Enniscorthy who also made the spectacular Haven celebration cake! There were goody bags for everyone as well as raffles for hampers with fantastic products from brands such as Neostrata and Uriage.
It was great to see the men from the local Enniscorthy Mens Shed also on the day who called in to wish Dermot and his team luck. Many neighbours called in too including neighbours Stitch Dat and Aideen Vonno Hair Design.
“Haven Pharmacy is already recognised within the industry as a leader in expert, healthcare advice, and the depth and scope of our knowledge is significant. I’m looking forward to being part of the Haven team” said Dermot. In a market of increased self-care and self-medication – the relationship between the consumer and the pharmacist is becoming even more important with the customer relying more on their pharmacist for the latest and most expert health care advice. Community pharmacists are regarded as the most accessible healthcare experts in primary care – this bodes well for Haven Pharmacy as trust, expert & professional care and personal service are at the core of what they do daily.
“This is a pharmacy brand for today’s pharmacy consumer, offering independent local communities the highest level of clinical excellence and expert advice from their own local pharmacist I am very excited about the opportunities ahead and the positive future as a member of Haven Pharmacy” commented Dermot.
