New life path
So, some of you know about our good news. Derick and I purchased a pharmacy! We are now the proud owners of J.E. Pierce Apothecary in Brookline, MA. It unfortunately happened quickly, and under less-than-ideal situations. But as they say, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Pierce is where Derick and I met 10 years ago, so it feels like just another chapter in our life.
Derick has put so much work into the store, just in the last month. During the transition, we had to close the store, and as a result most of the scripts were transferred out of the pharmacy. Luckily, we have wonderful independent pharmacy friends who were willing to serve our patients with the intent of transferring them back to us. We are very thankful for these friends and colleagues.
We are also fortunate to have the two full-time pharmacists stay on with us. They are both so so great. They really bring a great personality to the store and the patients love them. Although our favorite pharmacist, Steve, may be in retirement for now, our goal is to keep his spirit, and mission to serve patients alive in the store.
So if you are ever on Beacon St in Brookline, MA, please stop by and say hi.
