MEET J EDMUNDS PHARMACY - OUR PARCELLY LOCATION OF THE MONTH!
Meet J Edmunds Pharmacy, the Dalston business that has been family-run for over 30 years. Open since the 1980s, this store has seen huge change over the years, but has always remained a staple in the local community.
Chosen for their amazing loyalty to Parcelly and for championing our new Key Exchange service, our first Location Spotlight is on Sajeel Shah, the store manager at J Edmunds Pharmacy. We had a great time visiting the store and finding out more about Sajeel, his memories in the store, and what it's like to be a Parcelly business partner.
What do you love most about running the business?
What I love most is giving advice to my customers and seeing that it has helped them. Sometimes people speak to me about their medical issues, and it's always great to see that my advice can make a difference to their health.
What's the best memory you have had working in the store?
It's not so much a memory. But seeing the transformation of the store since the 1980s has been really interesting. With demographic and customer preference changes, our products have become more organic and more varied as we need to compete with high-street pharmacies.
What do you enjoy doing with your time off?
I like relaxing and listening to good music, I also really enjoy eating out. With the neighbourhood changing there are now more organic and vegan restaurants opening in Dalston and I love trying these out!
If you were deserted on an island and could only take 3 items from the store, what would you choose?
The most expensive Tom Ford fragrance we have in store (it would keep away the mosquitos...right?), mirrored sunglasses so I can talk to my reflection when I get lonely, and sun protection factor 50.
Location: 47 Kingsland High St, Dalston, London E8 2JS
Open times: Monday-Saturday 09:00-18:00
'I find Parcelly a very easy service to use compared to others as it can all be done from my smartphone, rather than having to learn to use a new piece of equipment. The customer service team have also been really helpful, they let me know in advance when a customer was coming to the store without a Parcelly ID, and talked me through how to sort out the issue. People also don’t usually expect us to stock some of the more high-end products we have on offer, and the Parcelly service has been a great way to let people know that they can buy these great brands at our store.
- Sajeel Shah, Store Manager
