It takes a village – Holland’s Village Shires Pharmacy & Gift Shop provides exceptional customer care

by Maryanna S. Phinn

At a time when local pharmacies compete with impersonal mega-chain box stores, Amazon or mail order services, Holland’s Village Shires Pharmacy continues its long-standing 30-year tradition of providing highly personalized care and service to families, senior citizens and individuals in the community.

“What sets us apart is personal and customized service,” notes Bonnie Millman, Rph, the store’s lead pharmacist, owner and manager. “We don’t treat you as a number, like the big box chains. We are someone who knows you, understands your needs, helps to solve problems and respects your privacy.”

Village Shires Pharmacy, open 365 days per year, accepts all insurances, accommodates customers with no insurance and makes prescription transfers easy.

Prescription prices are highly competitive, offering the lowest price points to customers.

The pharmacy is fully-stocked with specialty medications, medical devices and health aides and over-the-counter drugs.

Compounding services are available.

In addition, Village Shires Pharmacy offers vaccinations or shots for shingles, flu and pneumonia.

“We deliver every day to our local customers, especially senior citizens,” Bonnie says.

The pharmacy offers special home delivery programs including a weekly “pill box” service that organizes, stores and delivers weekly prescription medicines.

In addition, the pharmacy delivers “Blister Packs” or multi-dose, sealed medication packs to nursing homes, assisted living or retirement communities.   

Another unique aspect to Village Shires Pharmacy is its huge selection of chocolates, assorted nuts and nostalgic candies, holiday gifts, photo frames, coffee and tea mugs, gift wrap, free gift wrapping, greeting cards and customized gift baskets.

The store carries an array of products from local favorite confectioner, Asher’s Chocolates of Souderton.

It has an extensive selection of handmade PAPYRUS holiday and special occasion greeting cards and seasonal items such as back-to-school and Halloween supplies.

There are gifts for babies, children and teens, stuffed animals and popular novelty items.

“In many ways, we are combination of an old fashioned mom and pop shop that offers all of the 21st century, high-tech conveniences people expect today such as online refills, a mobile app called ‘iRefill’ and a telephone system for convenient re-ordering,” says Bonnie.

Customers can also purchase holistic, natural products at Village Shires Pharmacy, including Healthy Path CBD, a 100% natural CBD hemp oil product for natural relief of chronic pain, stress, arthritis, insomnia and other routine health problems.

“Many of our staff have worked here for years and know our customers well which also gives our store a personal touch,” adds Bonnie. “We are a family and actively involved in our community. We support many school and non-profit events, especially those that benefit community health such as supporting Bucks County Medication Disposal drug drop-off community events.”
