Back in 1952 Jack and Ita Staunton opened up their first shop in Castlebar – a pharmacy located on Main Street. The Staunton family is still heavily involved and Anne Junior, David, Jack, Megan and Vicki are all well known in the business in Castlebar.

Community is very much at the heart of the business and the shops are part of the daily lives of many Castlebar people. Biodose, the innovative medication management system, is also exclusive to their pharmacies. They offer a very personal service and know many customers well as they have been loyal patrons for many years.

Dispensing prescriptions has always been an important part of the pharmacy business. In addition Staunton’s offer over the counter advice, with no appointment necessary and no charge to the customer. They also have a collection and delivery service which is very convenient for those living in the local area. Staunton’s continually strive to develop their business in a way which benefits the community most. Perfumes and cosmetics are also integral parts of the shops and major brands such as Benefit, Clinique and Estee Lauder are exclusive to Staunton’s Pharmacies in Mayo.
