Good Graces, the newest pharmacy in Willow Springs, hosted a bustling grand opening and ribbon cutting event on Saturday. Hundreds of customers flocked to the parking lot in the 800 block of West Main for the live music, car show, prizes, and barbecue offered by the Gregory family.
“We estimated around 350 to 400 people in attendance all day,” said proprietor Brandon Gregory.
The team at the pharmacy gave away a total of 26 prizes, valued at $1,800 including the Grand Prize and the car show prizes. Gregory reported that 95% of the prizes were donated by local businesses and individuals. The Grand Prize was a kayak valued at $350, and it was awarded to Tambra Brower of Willow Springs.
There were three prizes awarded at the car show. Best in show went to Richard and Brittany DeLuna for their Ford Mustang GT 350. Second place went to Paul and Barbara Robinette for their 1971 C10 Chevy Pickup. Third place was Walter Rogers for his 1930 Model A. There were 35 entries in the car show.
The event was by far the most popular place to be in Willow Springs on Saturday.
Gregory said he was, “very humbled and pleased with the warm welcome, patrons’ comments and the outpouring of love from our community for our grand opening event. We plan to hold some sort of event annually with the response from our community - we want to give back!”
“Just in general, we want to thank our community (both businesses and citizens) for the wonderful day,” Gregory added, “with special thanks to the Chamber for kicking us off with the ribbon cutting, Three Rivers Hospice and Compassus Health for helping with the heath fair, Sharry and Rod with Bluegrass at Its Finest for the music, Adam Webb as our grill master.”
Good Graces opened for business on March 15 this year.
