THE Warwick Friendly Society celebrated its 100th birthday this week, and with streamers and balloons flooding the store, it was hard to miss the celebrations.

The first dispensary was set up in 1912, and has been providing the Warwick community with health care ever since.

WFS business manager Laura Brazier said she was excited to be a part of the company's milestone.

"It is very exciting," Mrs Brazier said.

"It's not every day a business celebrates being open for 100 years."

She said WFS was already ahead of the game when it came to innovation.

"The Warwick Friendly Society has done so much for Warwick and provided them with a very special health precinct," Mrs Brazier said.

"Everyone is talking about creating these super clinics, but we've already done it."

Merchandise manager Joanne Chandler said she had most enjoyed watching the WFS grow.

"There are not many businesses that get the opportunity to serve the community for such a length of time," Mrs Chandler said.

"I know how much it's grown in the eight years I have been here. As for where she sees the WFS in the future, "the sky is the limit".

"As the community changes and their needs change, we'll develop into the business they're looking for," she said.
