Local Business Leading by Example
Date: April 16, 2020
When leading by example, you are showing others what is possible. It may look different based on the service provided, but you are choosing to listen and rise to the challenge. The impacts felt in our community from COVID-19 are unique in their own way.
Island Pharmacy in Manteo is locally owned, and it’s one of what they call the Good Neighbor Pharmacies. Each store is unique to the community in which it serves and therefore understands its needs. A good neighbor is friendly, considerate, and while they may live close to you, they still respect your space and watch out for each other. Throughout these times of COVID-19, Island Pharmacy is just that, a good neighbor!
Island Pharmacy cares about its community and is respecting the guidelines set forth by local, state and federal entities to help its customers and neighbors stay safe. Only one person is allowed in Island Pharmacy at a time but perhaps look at it like a concierge service. They take care of each individual customer, wiping down the doors as they leave, and the credit card machine after each use
including that lovely little pen everyone loves to use! Signs are in place to help direct you so that they still can provide efficient and quality customer service. Even though you can’t shop down the aisles right now, the friendly staff are your very own personal shoppers ready to get whatever you need. Don’t worry, you can still have that one-on-one time with your pharmacist as they have a section with your very own chair set-up for you. One might have a lot of questions about these precautions but they in turn give us that personal service we all look for a lot of times!
Good neighbors respect community rules as they have their friends and family and their health and safety at the top of their mind. Island Pharmacy is truly a Good Neighbor Pharmacy in so many ways, and as such wants to help manage your care from head to toe. Leadership is not a title but an example, an action. Good neighbors are leaders who make a difference by showing others they care and is one of the most powerful ways to make a change!
