Peoples Drug Mart is getting ready to celebrate its grand re-opening.

After months of renovations, the Peoples Drug Mart is holding a Grand Re-Opening  celebration on Saturday Nov. 5.

The radio station will be there for part of the day to join in the celebrations. There will be a barbecue, a chance to win an iPad, you can enter the for that on site, and lots of sales.

A flyer highlighting those sales should be out in the mail this week.

Michael Hoenmans and his partner, Bill Long, took ownership in June, and renovations started the very next day. Everything has been re-done inside and out.

The new owners, who are based out of Chase, also extended the store hours, including hours on Sundays, and added six new members to their staff.

So be sure to stop by the  store on Saturday for the festivities, where you will also be able to sign up for their points card.
