Bundoran is looking forward to welcoming and celebrating yet another new arrival in the town next Saturday and one that will very much cater for the growing birth rate referred to by many as the “Recession Baby Boom”.

Bundoran is looking forward to welcoming and celebrating yet another new arrival in the town next Saturday and one that will very much cater for the growing birth rate referred to by many as the “Recession Baby Boom”.

Cara, the Donegal based pharmacy group, last week opened the doors quietly to their second floor at their flagship store in Bundoran.

Ramona Nicholas said, “This new department will actually double the retail space in the store from three thousand to six thousand square foot in total and encompasses a state of the art Photo and Baby Centre.

“Bundoran is now the largest of all our 12 stores within the group and offers a great selection of products to our valued customers.

“We are very excited about this new venture. It marks a new era for Cara. We have put considerable planning and thought into this area and we are really looking forward to welcoming our customers into it.”

Official opening

Cara will mark the occasion with an Official Opening next Saturday 14th April promising a fun-filled day for all the family.

Children can enjoy face painting, a candy station, story-telling, cupcake decorating and much, much more with several guest appearances that will be a real hit with the kiddies.

Customers will be able to enjoy wine and refreshments along with free health care checks in the new dedicated Healthcare Area which is located on the ground floor.

As a gesture of appreciation Cara will be offering a 20% discount off all stock on the existing ground floor and a huge range of unbelievable opening offers throughout the Photo and Baby centre.

Mamas and Papas

Having received numerous awards as voted for by baby magazines, industry leaders and mums and dads around the world, Mamas and Papas is a brand recognized for their commitment to design, innovation and safety, and to creating the very best products for modern parenting.

Ramona said, “We felt there was a need in the North West for a store providing for all the needs of a new baby but also very importantly, providing value for money for parents too which is so important in these times.

“We wanted a brand associated with excellent quality at the right price and we felt Mamas and Papas were without doubt the leaders in this area.”

“Senior Management from Mamas and Papas have spent a number of days in the store in the lead up to the opening and have commented that Cara Bundoran, will be named as one of their ‘Centre’s of Excellence’.”

Cara Photo Centre

For all the other treasured moments in life, Cara Pharmacy are helping capture them with their new state of the art photo centre.

The dedicated Photo Centre marks not only a new stepping stone for Cara, but also for photographic services in Ireland with a number of new photo and gift printing machines that are only available in Bundoran.

Group Manager Carole Murray said, “Our main aim is to provide an area where customers can come in and print their photos in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.

“All of our kiosks will be seated and customers can enjoy beautiful views over the Atlantic whilst printing their images and some of the kiosks will have technology similar to that of iPads!

“We will also be providing a whole new range of services including personalised greeting cards and photo books in addition to their existing services such as canvas Prints and photo Gifts, all of which are produced in store.

“The Cara Photo Centre is also an official partner to leading photo brands including Fujifilm and Canon and have been recognised by both companies as the ‘Cheapest in Ireland for Digital Printing’

Ramona Nicholas concluded saying, “We have developed a strong reputation for our excellent prices and warm, friendly and professional service - this new development is synonymous with the company’s mission- ‘The Ultimate Experience for all our Customers through Passion in People, Performance and Price.’”
