“Justin Golds helped to guide us through the decision to sell that business. It was nice to have somebody looking at it from not a sentimental point of view. We ended up selling that Pharmacy, and we haven’t looked back since.”
The decision to sell the Centrepoint Pharmacy allowed Karyn and Dominic to focus on growing the Eaton Community Pharmacy.
“BHR have helped guide me through where money is being spent, and the financial viability of the business,” Karyn said. “Since freeing up the financial burden of the other business, we’ve been able to expand into different directions here at Eaton Community Pharmacy. On top of traditional Pharmaceutical goods and services, we’ve been able to branch out into mobility, aged care and NDIS services.
“We’re not a big store, but we’re certainly unique in our offering to the public.”
Eaton Community Pharmacy’s new services include everything from aids to daily living to mobility scooters.
“Both Dom and I now work in the business,” Karyn said. “There’s always one of us doing school hours. He’s quite sought after now for sales and service of mobility equipment.
“For a small business, the cost of some of the mobility equipment is quite high, and we need to have it available and on display. I’ve found that the programs we use through BHR such as Xero make it much easier to keep track of those expenses.
“At our previous accounting service, everything was reactive. We would reach the end of a quarter and wait for a report and try to make changes – whereas Xero gives me here and now access to all of the information I need. Communicating with BHR is easy – I often speak with our Bookkeeper Lara Procter, and all my questions are answered promptly. She’s a superstar.”
So after ten years, Eaton Community Pharmacy is going from strength to strength.
“It feels like a country pharmacy. We like to get to know people, and share their highs and lows,” Karyn said.
