Rochford's Pharmacy named Clare's Retailer of the year
as featured in the Clare People Newspaper
What better place to find out whats happening in retail than at the store which recently won the “FBD Clare Retailer of the Year” Award. With branches on Parnell St and Westgate Business Park in Ennis and others in Corofin and Galway City, Rochford’s are best known for medicines. Whether filling Prescriptions or advising on cures for coughs and colds, you will find husband and wife pharmacists Brendan Rochford and Audrey Kinahan in-store helping deliver a great service with their team of expert staff.
The store is bright and spacious with a modern feel. An advice room is available to provide privacy for consultations with the Pharmacist and most spectacular is the robotic system that dispenses your prescription. Unlike the traditional chemist shop the pharmacist is not hidden away in a back room. Instead the pharmacist is centre stage on the shop floor and you get the opportunity to discuss your medicines face to face with the pharmacist while the medicines robot prepares your prescription. Then as if by magic your medicines appear - sliding down one of 3 spiral slides that dominate one side of the pharmacy.
But there's much more than medicines at Rochford’s Pharmacy, with beauty treats galore for gift hunting shoppers. “Customers still want their favourite brands but are looking for more value” says Audrey Kinahan of Rochford’s Pharmacy. “Those extra free items make all the difference. For example people love to get their present in official Chanel or Estée Lauder wrapping and gift bags”.
The Parnell Street store has won acclaim for the range of services and brands on offer. With qualified make up artists on hand to offer advice on such brands as Estee Lauder or Clinique and fragrance experts on hand at the Chanel counter theres no shortage of expertise to assist shoppers in looking good.
Staff are approachable and friendly making shoppers feel instantly at ease. Upstairs cocooned away from the hustle and bustle of the store is an oasis of calm - The in-store Clarins Beauty Spa which offers an array of Beauty Treatments.
Other special in-store services include a prosthesis fitting service for women who have undergone Breast Removal Surgery, a Tens machine rental service for expectant mothers and the hire of Hospital Grade Breast Pumps for nursing mums.
But all in all its the very welcoming staff that make your visit to the store a memorable one.
