When the pharmacy gets “dressed up”

When the pharmacy gets “dressed up”

Ι am in the center of Athens. I am urgently seeking painkillers for my headache. In my multi-compartment bag, t he item is over and I start the pharmacy safari.

Fortunately in the background, a pharmacy cross indicates to me the spot. Ι go inside and what do I see? The picture is heartbreaking.I feel like a runner in the “Spartathlon” who wants to swallow the mile running to the exit. Old and outworn pharmacy furniture, bench full of stacked things, open boxes of various kinds on the floor, shelves with boxes of drugs struggling to stand in place and threatening to overwhelm the owner.

What if the pharmacist is sweet and welcoming? The miserable environment is like it is sending me a secret exit message. I quickly say what I want, with the wallet already in my hand so as not to postpone. But come on, the pharmacist is delaying her attempt to retrieve the box, without precipitating the rest!Her employee tries to serve another client, but in the midst of this chaos she looks as if she is hunting for the lost treasure.My painkiller is coming. I grab it immediately and leave with relief. I’ve already went out to the streets when I remember that I wanted something more.Fat chance that she had it, I think with disdain and scoot off … And that’s what the majority of customers think of in a pharmacy like that.

The pharmacy after renovation “I think modern pharmacies have more products and place them so beautifully that you see them and you want to get one, you want to get another and you can’t get enough. They’re really tired of you, while in the old pharmacies there was no such thing, “claims one customer of a shrewd pharmacy who left his former pharmacist a client in the cold, because his pharmacy” was stuck in its aesthetics and logic of the 1970s”.

And there may have been some kinds of things that exist in modern pharmacies now, but you can’t see them. You had to ask the pharmacist to tell you. Fortunately in the new pharmacies they are located in such places that you can see, curate and choose them, ”says another customer. “When I walk into a refurbished and modern pharmacy I feel really good. I’m in not in a hurry to leave. It’s a matter of psychology. Of course my pocket sighs! “Moving from the pharmacy of the past to the modern-day pharmacy of today is just one decision away. Some think it belongs to the bold ones, under such adverse economic conditions. In practice it belongs to the prudent, who want to cut the thread in the sales race. “I did a radical pharmacy renovation because it was old when I took it. The first few months of this have been satisfactory. Customers are positive about the change and sales are showing an increase.

Unfortunately I can’t speak in percentages.I didn’t choose the company for the renovation by financial criteria, but because it seemed credible to me, ”says Anastasis Kontogiorgos, who keeps a pharmacy in Kolonaki. “Innovo constructions did not fail my expectations!”
