Almost all projects come from pharmacies that have been commissioned to create a website and use it as an additional sales channel. With this idea, we looked for pharmacists who could join the project and we contacted Tomás and José María,” explains Cristina, who also emphasizes that only four months have passed from the first meeting to the opening of the store.
