Sheboygan Falls business leaders take first steps toward attracting pharmacy to the city
Sheboygan Falls, WI – December 8, 2016 – We want a local pharmacy! This is one of the requests that Sheboygan Falls Mayor Randy Meyer hears repeatedly from local residents. While it is surprising that a community of 8,000 presently does not have a pharmacy, a group of business leaders have been meeting for about the past year to help set the foundation to achieve several initiatives to help advance economic development in the city. “I am appreciative that we have such a good group of businesses and major employers that care about this city, and we believe that we can attain some things that will help our city continue to grow.”
Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation (SCEDC) has been collaborating with the city, business leaders, and the Sheboygan Falls Chamber on a wide variety of goals. “Community development and economic development are intertwined,” stated SCEDC’s Business Development Specialist Jim Schuessler. “It is all about sustainability, and I am confident that as a group we can attract the amenities that the citizens and community leaders value most. As potential new residents make a decision on relocation, we know that they value having the convenience of local businesses in addition to great schools and local services.”
On Thursday, the group participated in a presentation from a prospective business partner that offers a model that would bring pharmacy services to Sheboygan Falls by using a template that is already working elsewhere in Wisconsin. Success will require future meetings with local employers, which will take place over the next few months.
If there is anyone else interested in locating a pharmacy in Sheboygan Falls, they are encouraged to contact Jim Schuessler at Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation 920-452-2350.
