But it’s not just any building, it’s the first black owned pharmacy and a ribbon cutting was held Monday morning to celebrate its opening.
Dr. Teresa Mitchell, owner of Total Care Pharmacy, says this is an exciting opportunity for her.
“I’m very excited to be a leader and entrepreneur in the area,” said Mitchell.
No stranger to Baconton, Dr. Mitchell has been a practicing pharmacist for over 20 years and she’s also from Mitchell County. Recently she taught the pharmacy technician program at Albany Technical College.
Being an entrepreneur is something Mitchell has dreamed about for a while.
“We started back in September 2014, and for me I would say that it was a God move,” Mitchell said. “As far as the area, it was a seed that my father planted before he passed. He told me that if I ever wanted to start a business, to start it in Baconton because it was the hub, it was the center, it was going to grow.”
