A Family Affair Since 1957
Things have changed since Paul Kelly opened his small pharmacy in the east end of Belleville in 1957. Kelly’s grew, as did our business, and we’ve now entered a new millennium. We have made a lot of friends over the years, and they have become part of our “Family of Customers”.
Kelly’s Home Health Care evolved from the need to supply a variety of medical equipment to customers who wished to remain active and independent in their own homes. Soon, our Home Health store grew to 4,000 square feet, and we opened a second location in Trenton. Our service coverage spans the northern reaches of Hastings County to the southern tip of Prince Edward County. The store opened as Kelly’s Drugs and was 1,100 sq. ft. in size when it began operations on Bridge St. E. in September 1957. It has grown into a property of 12,000 sq. ft. and evolved as Kelly’s Guardian Pharmacy & Home Health Centre. Mr. Paul Kelly has retained his role as president and owner through the years. Son, Alan Kelly, has been the general manager since 1993.
We have met folks from all walks of life and have helped them lead happy lives and maintain active lifestyles. The one thing that has remained constant is the small town quality and “Service with a Smile” that we have been delivering for over 65 years.
Our dedicated team of sales, service and retail specialists allows you to rest assured that we can assist you in your health care needs, and are proud to include you in the Kelly’s “family.”
Customer service and convenience to meet the communities’ needs have been important to the store’s success. Paul Kelly was a visionary when he opened the store outside of city limits so customers could shop on Sundays. The store was open on Wednesday afternoons when the rest of the drugstores in the city were closed. Kelly’s is open 364 days a year, closed only on Christmas Day. Everyday is “Seniors Day” and “Free Delivery” is available to everyone within the city limits.
Kelly’s Drug Store & Kelly’s Home Health Centre are now conveniently together under one roof in Belleville. Kelly’s has been proudly part of the community for almost half a century.
