Business launches country town's fresh look

PROSTON'S business district will be getting a fresh look this year with many developments on the way.

Proston Health and Beauty will be the first for renovations in the country town.

The re-imagined and re-branded business 'Proston Health & Beauty Apothecary' will celebrate their grand opening on July 2, 2019.

Store manager Glenys Blanch said with ongoing developments in the Proston CBD, they decided to keep up with the changes.

"We felt it was important to keep with these changes, and as a result have chosen a name that we feel reflects our strong heritage, while also helping to conjure up thoughts of a similar purposed store from a simpler time," she said.

"In a world increasingly dominated by self service checkouts and warehouse styled shopping, we strive to offer a personalised shopping experience, matched with emergency home delivery and a wealth of pharmaceutical knowledge."

The chemist has a long standing and rich history in Proston with more than 40 years of continuous operation.

Ms Blanch said throughout this time, the store had operated in several locations in Proston's main street.

However, they have been in their current location for more than three decades.

"2019 is shaping up to be a big year for Proston, with ongoing developments in the main business precinct," she said.

Proston's Men's Shed is due to be built soon and a community group has been formed to assist with the overall revitalisation of the main street.

Proston Health & Beauty Apothecary is a branch of Wondai Pharmacy, and receives prescriptions every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

"In addition to our general healthcare products, visitors to our store will find an extensive range of giftwares, cosmetics, perfumes, vitamins and skincare products," Ms Blanch said.

The store will be closed from 1pm on Friday, June 28 for renovations.

The renovated store will reopen on Tuesday, July 2 at 9am with a new range of giftware, refreshed product lines and massive general specials.
