Newburgh Pharmacy

Growing up in a small community in northern New Brunswick, Jennifer Bergeron enjoyed the benefits of the friendly, co-operative atmosphere and more relaxed pace of life. 
After moving to Ontario and living in Kingston for several years, when it came time to open her own pharmacy she wanted it to be in place where she could feel a similar vibe. A few months after moving to Yarker, Bergeron opened Newburgh Pharmacy, a full-service pharmacy and retail outlet in the picturesque Stone Mills Township community.
