About Stauntons

Many Brands, One Site – that’s what we are!

Staunton’s Pharmacy was opened by Jack and Ita Staunton in 1952, as a private, family owned retail Pharmacy. It is now a 3rd generation business and has been a limited company, Stauntons Pharmacy Ltd (SPL), since 1993. Currently, there are 5 different business units which are all based in Castlebar - 3 pharmacies, a Health food shop and most recently a Daybreak convenience store. There are 65 staff (full time and part time) with a core of experienced, loyal and well trained team members in each location.

  • Main St (450 sq m) has equal balance business between ‘ethical’ (prescriptions and medicines) and ‘Front Of Shop’ (FOS - cosmetic, toiletry, perfume and gifts) business including an extensive cosmetic/perfume section. Main Street is positioned in the traditional town centre but in recent years is struggling to compete against the polarising draw of Tesco, Dunnes, Aldi, Argos, Shaws, Next and so on which are all located in the area adjacent to the Link Pharmacy.
  • Newantrim St pharmacy (70 sq.m), opened in 1990 has a larger proportion of ethical but limited FOS business (75/25). It is a small service pharmacy for this part of Castlebar and benefits from its proximity to Doctors surgeries and the lack of competition nearby.
  • The Link Pharmacy (250sq.m) in the most recently developed shopping area in Castlebar and has the most modern shopfit. As it becomes more established the ethical business is increasing its share.
