Some history

July 2007 saw a pharmacy return to Ahuriri after the previous one closed in the 1980's. To establish the pharmacy, Claire and Nick Wallis purchased the Odeon Pharmacy along Hastings St, Napier and we watched the progress of the new building in Bridge Street. I remember that first day, stocking the shelves and serving our first customer a packet of bandaids - our journey in Ahuriri had begun!
Our team has grown over the years, Andrea and Gavin Franklin joined us as owners early on and bring fresh ideas and great energy to the business. Andrea runs the pharmacy with our experienced and friendly team, and does a fabulous job selecting and displaying the gift ranges.

In 2021, Mel Barber also took the opportunity of buying into the business after many years heading up the dispensary team. She works with other Pharmacists and technicians to expertly prepare your scripts, offer advice and make medication packs. Our retail team includes trained Pharmacy Assistants and a Beauty Therapist to meet your health and beauty needs. None of this journey would have been possible without the loyal support of so many of our customers, so thank you.

What people are saying

"I very much enjoy shopping at the chemist shop, for me, a better alternative to going into the city. Staff always gracious and there is always a little something to take your eye and buy. Love Dawn x"

”You can't beat the friendly service and efficiency. I went in to get pain relief and came out with a gorgeous linen top and a couple of cards. Where else can you get it all?” Louise

”I love coming into your shop. Not only for the number of items of skin care that I love using, but I find the girls so lovely & they make me feel special.” Ngaire 

"Just wanted to say how impressed I am by your mail order service. It was so easy to use, the product I bought was cheaper than in stores and it arrived almost before I'd hit the send button! You do a great job - keep it up."

"Brilliant as usual, both product & service :)" Becca

"Absolutely brilliant service thank you" Kirsty

"Hi Andrea, more than happy - great service, easy to order and prompt delivery. What's not to like!! Sally"

"Hi lovely people have just enjoyed (over a cuppa) reading this wonderful information filled Ahuriri pharmacy email. Loved, loved, loved all the wonderful tips and advice from people who not only talk the talk, but walk the walk ! ... Thanks everyone for your lovely smiles, welcoming attitude and wonderful advice , you are a fabulous team of talented individuals! Warmest regards, Jet"

"The service was fantastic from the team – especially as I phoned to ask if the vouchers were specific to the ‘treatment’ and they said yes, but kindly created a new voucher for me ‘to the value of $35 for any treatment’!!! This was greatly appreciated as it was for my mother, and she has visited you a few times now for eyebrow treatments etc, and I wanted to give her the choice of whatever she wanted. Thanks again for the extra service! I love coming into the pharmacy and the lovely ranges you have, especially I Coloniali." Rachelle

"As always your service and customer 'engagement' is brilliant !! Keep doing what you are doing. You are definitely on my positive WOM list :)" Janet

"Brilliant service, communication and products. Thank you so much. It is so great living rurally to be able to pop onto your website and see and order great gifts. Merry Christmas to you all." Jennie

"Very happy with goods thanks.  Your website was easy to use and delivery was prompt.  I have found cosmetics (well the ones I particularly want) not that easy to find on the web (my favourite way of shopping).  When I searched for these particular products your site came up – hence the purchase. You have a great site and no doubt you will hear from me in the future." Trish

"We were very happy with our order, thank you! We will definitely order again and shall mention your service to our friends. You were prompt and the products were very well packaged."

"Thank you, yes very happy with my order - it was the lippie I wanted and the service I got over the phone was very friendly, and the delivery prompt.  I thought the free hand cream sample and mints were a really lovely gesture too, so thanks for those." Cecilia from Auckland.
