A pharmacy in Georgia has the remedy for everything: headaches, stomach pain, and even monsters.

A woman named April Villada thanked a Kroger pharmacist on Facebook for her creative and thoughtful solution to her child’s fears.

April said she was at a Kroger pharmacy in Suwannee, Georgia, to pick up some medication when her daughter, Aria, started to talk about her fears of a monster in her room.

A pharmacist named Anna heard the little girl talking and gave her a squirt bottle that read, “Aria Villada: Spray once a day to avoid monster.”

“My daughter feels very safe going to bed in her big-girl room now that she has her very own monster repellent,” April wrote in her Facebook post.

So far, her post has received more than 20,200 Facebook likes and has been shared more than 6000 times.

“Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart Anna from Kroger!” April wrote. “You definitely are one of a kind, and [it was] seriously the best customer service I've had in a very long time. I'm truly touched by your kindness!”

In its own Facebook post, Kroger said the pharmacist had shared the company’s “secret monster repellent with a valued customer” and cautioned others to be on the lookout for monsters this Halloween.
