Pharmacieplus du mandement was founded by Mrs Schwarz in 1951. She transformed the village drugstore (which extended along the rampe de Choully) into a pharmacy. Mr René Bollier purchased the business in 1973. According to legend, he was nicknamed "the sorcerer"; he was famous at the time for producing ointments and specialties that were highly appreciated by the villagers.
Customers found everything in this village pharmacy – potato seed, stationery, light bulbs and even fertiliser for "Madame's" vegetable garden.
Mr Bollier died young and bequeathed the establishment to his daughter, Anne-Marie Bollier, who took over the management of the pharmacy in 1977, who at that time had barely completed her studies. She played a key role until 2007, taking on numerous activities in the pharmaceutical workplace. Passionate about her profession, she would help it gain respectability.
She was always very mindful of the quality of advice and dispensing of medicines. Her professional excellence enabled pharmacieplus du mandement to gain a reputation for quality and able to meet every request concerning health care.
Nearing retirement, she set about searching for an independent female pharmacist to whom she could entrust the subsequent management of the pharmacy. She found her in the person of Sabina Francia, the current manager and owner.
Sabina Francia is surrounded by a stable team and in line with the tradition initiated by Anne-Marie Bollier, she focuses on quality in her work, listening to customers and searching for solutions.
Over the years, the pharmacy has been able to further increase the range of its in-house products. Indeed, a number of the preparations and remedies sold in the establishment are made in the laboratory.
The team is trained in natural remedies such as homeopathy and aromatherapy and addresses the needs and wishes of its customers.
