The Little Pharmacy moved their business from Dexter Street to 36 E. Main St. recently and held a Red Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in their upscale new location.
City officials, members of the Milan Area Chamber of Commerce, friends and residents attended the ceremony along with a very special guest, Hanan Lababidi, owner Ziad Ghamraoul’s mother who attended from Kuwiat via Skype.
It was a festive event with refreshments that included French macaroons and Mini Italian desserts.  Enjoying the hospitality were Claudia Hale and Lori Blakeman, who said they like to support Milan businesses.  Blakeman laughingly said, “We’re Red Ribbon groupies.”
The pharmacy is full service and employee Amanda Rains said business was good and the facility strives to treat their customers like family.  She said, “We try to know all our customers and their first names offering personalized service.”
In the spirit of a hometown business, the pharmacy offers services to include, but not limited to: • Free home delivery • Free pharmacist consultations • Tips on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle • No waiting or long lines • Competitive drug pricing and lower cost options • Customized yet automated refills • Medication compounding for humans & animals • Medical Administration Records (MARs) • State of the art technology • Low-cost generics • Customized packaging • Medication Therapy Management (MTM) • Dedicated MTM pharmacist to support • Durable Medical Equipment (DME).
Mayor Dominic Hamden offered words of congratulations and welcomed the Little Pharmacy to Milan’s downtown.  He jokingly said recommending the pharmacy, “Ziad filled my blood pressure medicine.”
The store’s hours of operation are Mon. through Fri. from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m, Sat. from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and closed Sundays.  For information, call 439-3900.
