Shelburne Town Pharmacy’s grand opening a huge success

September 25, 2013   ·   0 Comments

Shelburne Town Pharmacy celebrated its official Grand Opening on Saturday, September 21 and in what Shelburne residents are coming to realize, pharmacy owner Sanjay Lekhi is a pharmacist in a league of his own.

A newly recognized Chamber of Commerce Member, Lekhi is not new to Shelburne having worked in No Frills Pharmacy from 2004–2008 where he gratefully won the Pharmacist of the Year Award.

Humble, caring and well loved by his friends and co-workers, Lekhi greeted all who attended the grand opening in his usual sincere manner. Genuine in his intention to serve his community, Lehki offered a free barbeque, discount prices, and a $5 Giant Tiger Gift Card with every purchase $25.00 or more. In addition  Lekhi will be offering his waiting room to fellow businesses in the future for free to further improve the quality of life for the residents of Shelburne and encouraging other business to thrive. During the grand opening many businesses set up tables for free in the waiting room showcasing what their businesses have to offer.

On hand during the event was Zumba Instructor, Rena Rodrigues, Mary Styles, MC, CCC, Counsellor in Mental Health, Debra Jones, Reiki Master, Debra Jones, Mary Kay Sales Director, Michelle O’Driscoll, her Assistant, Danielle Jenkins and Hair Dresser, Judy Stevens.

Each one of these businesses cater to the positive aspect and perspective in a person’s life and that is exactly where Lekhi is in a league of his own presenting uncharted territory in retail philosophy. The very idea that one business can benefit another is not a new concept, but the idea that several businesses working together can build a better community through positive impact and giving back to their community is new.

An example of this kind of generosity which Lekhi feels is a natural course to take is the Customer Appreciation Barbecue which is scheduled for October 10th, and of course all are welcome and all is free.

“To say thank you to all my customers and to invite Shelburne residents to a free barbecue is the least I can do. It’s very important to me to recognise my customers and let them know they are not just customers, and it’s a better way to get to know people, be a part of the community,” said Lekhi.  Reciprocally, Shelburne residents get to know Lekhi and the more you know, the more you come to realize, there is a new “friend” in town, one you can rely on, and one who actually cares.

Customer, George Hunt attended the opening and had this to say, “Sanjay is a great guy. The more we talked, the more I found out we had a lot in common. He’s my friend.” Hunt mirrored the general sentiment from all those who attended the Shelburne Town Pharmacy Grand Opening making the event a huge success.
