A Message From Alex December 2023

Since early November, my kids have had ear infections, RSV, the flu, and upper respiratory tract infections (the image for this blog is them Christmas tree shopping with me… while they are both sick!). Days or weeks later, I’d have it, extended family would have it, and the cycle would repeat! I’ve made many calls to Melissa and Mary this past month at the pharmacy asking what the kids should take, what I should take, and how long this will last!!! I’m grateful all of our staff and customers have that same opportunity too. Our pharmacists are always happy to help your family stay healthy, and answer any questions as necessary! Now, let’s talk about some less serious topics.

Oswald’s Pharmacy Christmas Sales 2023

This December we’re excited to share our annual customer appreciation day with you all! It will be held on Saturday, December 2nd. We’ve got a scavenger hunt, gift baskets to raffle off (including an iPad and AirPods—but more importantly, Oswald’s swag!), 20% off jigsaw puzzles, 50% off boxed holiday cards and so much more!

    Whether you’re stopping by on the 2nd, or anytime this month, enjoy the wonderful goods our team has been purchasing throughout the year! While we have some ‘global’ brands you’ll see at other gift stores, you’ll also find plenty of unique lines that are sure to bring a smile to a member of any generation of your family!

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday this December. My family and the Oswald’s staff are so grateful for your continued support. Travel safe, stay healthy, and we look forward to seeing you in 2024!
