Located at the corner of East Walton Street in Baconton, GA is the first Black owned pharmacy. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Monday morning to celebrate the opening of Total Care Pharmacy.
The owner, Teresa Mitchell says this is an exciting opportunity for her.
“I’m very excited to be a leader and entrepreneur in the area,” said Mitchell.
Dr. Mitchell has been a pharmacist for over 20 years and is no stranger to Baconton, GA. She says being an entrepreneur is something she has dreamed about for a long time.
“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.”
