Town Hall is now preparing Welcome Kits for new families that are moving into our community.

Our Welcome Kits feature and direct these new families to a small number of local businesses for the goods, services & professionals that they need to find.

Since our Welcome Kits are exclusive, and we can only accommodate one local Pharmacy, I would ask you to kindly let me know if you are interested in being featured in our local Welcome Kits.

It is worthy to note that, according to Dr. Cathy Goodwin in her book “Making the Big Move”, 69% of new residents and families seek out a new Pharmacy within 6 months of their relocation. As such, nearly 7 out of 10 recipients of our Welcome Kits are actively seeking a new local Pharmacy.

I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail.

Thanks.

Welcome to 38th Street Pharmacy, located in Austin, Texas. We are an independently owned store with a small-town atmosphere and competitive prices.
