WITH a fo­cus on pro­vid­ing af­ford­able prices in con­ve­nient lo­ca­tions, the group of lo­cally owned and op­er­ated Alive Phar­macy stores is un­der­go­ing an ex­cit­ing evo­lu­tion.

Grow­ing from hum­ble be­gin­nings to now en­com­pass 10 stores, the com­bined his­tory of the lo­cal own­ers of Alive stretches back for decades in Far North Queens­land.

This month, the lo­cal own­ers are ex­cited to launch a bold new brand to re­flect the evo­lu­tion to Alive Phar­macy Ware­house — a lo­cally-owned group of phar­ma­cies with great prices, con­ve­nient lo­ca­tions and a fo­cus on giv­ing back to our com­mu­nity.

You will see the new Alive branded stores at Mt Sheri­dan Plaza, Ed­mon­ton, Mul­grave Rd (next to Spot­light) and In­n­is­fail, with more to fol­low over com­ing months.

To cel­e­brate the launch of the new brand’s cat­a­logue on Tues­day, July 31, the first 200 cus­tomers to visit one of the newly branded stores will re­ceive a free cal­ico shop­ping bag — a great gift with the plas­tic bag ban now in place.

The new brand­ing re­flects the vi­brancy and re­li­a­bil­ity of the Alive Phar­macy Ware­house com­mit­ment to healthy lifestyles, trusted ad­vice and wide prod­uct of­fer­ing, all de­liv­ered with a car­ing cus­tomer ser­vice ap­proach in mind.

To com­ple­ment its pre­scrip­tion ser­vice, the Alive Phar­macy Ware­house net­work is now also home to its very own phar­macy that spe­cialises in com­pound­ing, lo­cated at the Mul­grave Rd store.

This means Alive phar­ma­cists trained and qual­i­fied in com­pound­ing can pro­vide a wide range of spe­cial­ist medicine tai­lored to suit your spe­cific needs.

To fur­ther boost the new Alive Phar­macy Ware­house brand, prod­uct ranges and ad­di­tional ser­vices have been in­creased across the en­tire net­work of 10 phar­ma­cies un­der its ban­ner.

Mean­while, greater buy­ing power means bet­ter prices for Alive cus­tomers.

The en­tire Alive team prides it­self on de­liv­er­ing a strong fo­cus on pre­ven­ta­tive health and pro­mot­ing healthy lifestyles.

As one of the Alive Phar­macy Ware­house own­ers says: “We get to know our cus­tomers’ health re­quire­ments re­ally well and all stores pro­vide med­i­ca­tion clin­ics, a fo­cus on vi­ta­min sup­ple­ments that sup­port di­etary in­take while also stock­ing an in­creas­ing range of sports nutri­tion items.”

Of course, the new look Alive Phar­macy Ware­house stores also fea­ture an ex­cel­lent se­lec­tion of health and beauty prod­ucts, from fra­grances to cos­met­ics.

You’ll find all the big brands such as L’Oreal, May­belline, Cov­er­girl, Rim­mel, Max Fac­tor, Na­tio, and other de­signer brands in­clud­ing Napoleon Perdis are still avail­able at the Smith­field Shop­ping Cen­tre phar­macy as an ex­clu­sive to the group.

Dur­ing Au­gust, the Alive Phar­macy Group was pleased to sup­port the Cairns Com­mu­nity Am­bas­sador for YWAM Med­i­cal Ships. The com­mu­nity cam­paign col­lects un­wanted glasses to be dis­trib­uted to pa­tients in ru­ral and re­mote ar­eas of Pa­pua New Guinea. This will make a sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence in pro­tect­ing eye­sight and re­duc­ing the risk of ptery­giums (growth on the eye) in those com­mu­ni­ties.

Lo­cals are en­cour­aged to drop their un­wanted pairs of glasses into Alive Phar­macy Ware­house stores, so they can be handed over to the MV YWAM PNG med­i­cal and train­ing ship when it docks in Cairns on its way to Pa­pua New Guinea.

Make sure you visit the re­freshed Alive Phar­macy Ware­house stores for the con­ve­nience of sev­eral new lo­ca­tions and very com­pet­i­tive prices, where the fo­cus is al­ways on help­ing cus­tomers be “healthy, happy, alive”.
