Business is growing in Barriere, especially over at the IDA Pharmacy. Store manager Shelly DeFelice says the store is currently in the process of getting plans finalized for a number of renovations that will start in early summer.
Limited mobility customers will appreciate that renovations will include enlarging the aisles throughout the store to make them easier to negotiate and more wheelchair friendly. Renos also include the addition of a flower shop, complimenting the already large stock of gift ware available to their clientele.
“We’ll be expanding the store outwards towards AG Foods,” said DeFelice. “This will temporarily interfere with some of the parking spaces between the two stores, but this will be rectified as soon as the renovations are completed. We will remain open throughout the construction period and will still maintain our high level of customer service with extra staff on duty to minimize the impact of the renovations. We ask customers to please be patient with us during the construction period.”
She noted that local contractor, Armco Contracting, has been hired for the main part of the renovations.
