THE start of the new financial year today represented the 10th anniversary in business for New Norfolk pharmacist Bel Bird. In a video posted on Facebook earlier today, Ms Bird said it had been a fantastic 10 years and she looked forward to several more decades in business at New Norfolk.
She first worked in the New Norfolk Guardian Pharmacy when it was still in the small original High St premises being operated by Gil Thomas, about 13 years ago, and returned as a business partner in 2010. She has been the sole owner for the last five years, during which time a major expansion has been carried out and major awards have been won.
“The very first day I walked into that pharmacy I knew it was somewhere I wanted to spend a lot more time and the team just welcomed me with open arms and the customers made me feel so welcome as well,” Ms Bird said in her video.
The anniversary will be celebrated during the month ahead, with special promotions in store and some walks down memory lane on social media. Congratulations Bel.
