First Black-Owned Pharmacy Opens Near Albany, Georgia

first_black_owned_pharmacy

"It was a God move," says Dr. Teresa Mitchell, after opening the first black-owned pharmacy and drugstore in the Albany, Georgia area. After 20 years as a practicing pharmacist, Dr. Mitchell recently became the owner of Total Care Pharmacy, which opened in Baconton, Georgia, just 16 miles from the city of Albany.

Small but mighty

Baconton, Georgia is a small community (with less than 1,000 residents) in Mitchell County, Georgia. Dr. Mitchell has lived there for some time and has taught the pharmacy technician program at Albany Technical College. It has been her dream to one day become an entrepreneur, and she couldn't be more "excited to be a leader and entrepreneur in the area."

Influenced by her father

Mitchell's father encouraged her and thought that Baconton would be a good place to start her own business. He considered it a hub that would have good growth potential. Mitchell considers it an exciting opportunity.

Total Care Pharmacy is located at 149 East Walton Street in Baconton, GA and they can be reached by calling (229) 787-5765.
