Since the 1950’s, Holmes Pharmacy has opened its doors to meet the medical needs of LaGrange’s residents. Though its original location on Main Street in historic downtown LaGrange may be a distant memory, the spirit and service of Holmes Pharmacy lives on in its current locations and in the hearts of the people who work and shop there.
The people of LaGrange always band together to support local businesses, which was made evident at the Chamber ribbon cutting held for Holmes Pharmacy’s grand opening for its third location. After seven years of hard work and hoping, Holmes Pharmacy owner Perry P. Prather was finally able to secure the spot as Piggly Wiggly’s in-store pharmacy. Located at 1861 Roanoke Road inside Piggly Wiggly, this convenient location is sure to please residents of Roanoke, West Point, and LaGrange alike.
Chamber members, city councilmen, and LaGrange residents all came out in support of the Grand Opening. Chamber President Page Estes congratulated Holmes Pharmacy on their growth, thanked them for their long-time service to the community, and wished them the best in their new location. Perry P. Prather, pharmacy owner, thanked attendees for their continued support and introduced the staff that would be working at the Piggly Wiggly location. Co-owner of several Piggly Wiggly locations including the one on Roanoke Road, Keith Milligan and his son Drew Milligan were also in attendance. “We’re excited to have [Holmes Pharmacy] in the store,” said Keith.
The ceremonial Chamber ribbon was brought out in its bright green and gold. Green, of course, representing the hopeful profits of the new locations, and gold representing the golden relationships between the Chamber and its members, and its members with one another. The ribbon was cut, and Holmes Pharmacy stepped into their new future, with perhaps their most convenient location yet.
