Blooms The Chemist has celebrated the re-opening of its Umina, NSW store in June with a series of community events and a grand opening at its new location

Following a fire at the original store location in January, the pharmacy was closed until a new premises could be located and fitted out.

As part of the relaunch celebrations, store owner and pharmacist Markos Atalla and staff visited a number of local community groups throughout the week including the Ettalong and Umina Bowling Club, Everglades Country Club and Ettalong Diggers to provide free superfood smoothies and health checks.  

An in-store event last Saturday included a wide range of activities and giveaways, with the Star 104.5FM road star party team, live acoustic music, facepaintin and a special appearance from Batman and Wonder Woman.

Former NRL legend Adam McDougall was there to help celebrate.

    Congratulations. Unfortunately statistics show that very few businesses survive a catastrophic fire unless they are able to start up soon afterwards. They either never reopen or reopen but fail within a short period after. All businesses need to have a clear disaster recovery plan. I wrote a blog post on this some years ago. See link below
