DURAMED SIGNS LEASE ON NEW EVANS LOCATION
Eric Holgate, CEO of Duramed on 15th Street in Augusta, told Buzz founder Neil Gordon that the deal is done in Evans. He has agreed to build-out space in the Evans Town Center on North Belair Road on the opposite side of the YMCA of Evans and near Serenity Day Spa and many medical facilities like a pain management practice and a Rehabilitation center as well.
“Twenty-five percent of my pharmacy and durable medical equipment sales come from Columbia County, and we believe there are a number of potential clients from there that we will attract because of the new location,” said Holgate. The plan is for him to hire two full-time employees, along with part-timers. The opening date is set for December, prior to Christmas.
The Evans location will be a “custom pharmacy” in which Duramed will do medical compounding, hormone replacement therapy, and pain gels.
The long-time 15th Street location will remain in place and provide traditional pharmacy services, along with a boutique, and durable medical equipment like seat lift chairs. DuraMed has been serving the CSRA with home medical equipment, supply needs, and specialty pharmaceutical compounds since 1984.
