Bandy Pharmacy’s open house


Welcoming the new pharmacist in town, locals flooded Bandy’s Pharmacy, located at 707 W. Hobsonway, to meet Linh Doan and staff on Aug. 31. Sponsored
by the Blythe Chamber of Commerce, Bandy’s employees passed out complimentary gift bags, held a gift basket raffle and shared in hometown laughs and
small talk over light refreshments. Working in pharmacy for the past 25 years, Doan said he’s happy to be here, serving the people of Blythe. “When custom-
ers come in, I want them to feel appreciated from our family-oriented staff. I want things to be more personable with them. I want to be like a family, and
that’s what Bandy had in the past, so I’m just hoping to improve on that and make it better,” Doan said.
