OSPA wants to help our members with all pharmacy related topics. This includes assisting independent pharmacy owners when they decide to sell their business.
I am Joe Ervin, a pharmacist and owner along with my wife LeAnne of Brownsville Pharmacy & Gifts. We are at retirement age and are looking for someone or a pharmacy group that would like to carry on the operation of our independent pharmacy in Brownsville.
Brownsville Pharmacy is well established and has been in operation since 1981. We are located in the historic downtown section of Brownsville Oregon. We occupy approximately 2800 sq/ft of well-maintained, fresh retail space. The business is housed in a remodeled and well-maintained building owned by LeAnne and myself. In addition to traditional pharmacy services, we offer a thriving vaccination business, medication synchronization, and multi-med compliance packaging. Areas of growth might include addition of pet medications, MTM services, smoking cessation and related services. We utilize Liberty Software for our pharmacy system and point-of-sale system. Additionally, the pharmacy offers a nice card and gift area.
Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 9am to 6pm and Saturdays 9am to 3pm. The pharmacies’ average week-day prescription count is approximately 145. Mondays are usually 175 to 200+ prescriptions. Samaritan Health offers a full-time clinic in Brownsville along with a walk-in clinic most days. Most of our clients receive their medical services from Brownsville, Albany, Lebanon, Corvallis, Sweet Home and Eugene. I am attaching some photos of our operation to this email.
The city of Brownsville is a thriving (historic) town in central Linn County adding 80+ new fully occupied homes in the last two years. Our town is rural yet close to I-5 and within 20 to 30 minutes of Albany, Corvallis, Lebanon, Sweet Home and Eugene. We serve a trade area of approximately 3500 to 4000 people including Shedd, Halsey, and Crawfordsville. Brownsville, with addition of the new homes, has a population of approximately 2100.
We would like to pass the pharmacy off to the next generation of pharmacist who interested in continuing a professionally rewarding, rural pharmacy practice. Closing the store and moving the files out of town would leave yet another “pharmacy desert” in Oregon. This is not the exit strategy we had planned for ourselves or Brownsville.
Thank you in advance to your kind consideration. I am best reached by my cell at 541 914 0081 or E-Mail: email@example.com . We greatly appreciate discretion in contacting us. We are in a small town. Word gets out so easily.
Joe and LeAnne Ervin
