Two More Pharmacies Join Care Chemist Network

Two More Pharmacies Join Care Chemist Network

Date: 18th January 2011

Glendowie Care Chemist and Otahuhu Care Chemist in Auckland have become the latest stores to join Care Chemist, bringing New Zealand’s fastest growing community pharmacy group to 27.

Behzed Eghdamian, owner of both new Care Chemists explains: ‘I have liked the Care Chemist concept since I first heard about it and I’m glad that I have been given the opportunity to become a part of it. I have always believed that pharmacies should be an integral part of the local community. People should recognise their pharmacist and feel comfortable enough to come in and ask questions about healthcare and medicine management.

‘I was also attracted to the way Care Chemist looks after its pharmacists, especially the strong marketing support that they put behind the stores,’ adds Behzed. ‘I’m looking forward to raising the profile of Glendowie and Otahuhu Care Chemist, and raising awareness in the area about who we are and what we do.’

Care Chemist spokesperson, Anthony Yee, says: ‘We are thrilled that Behzed has decided to bring two of his pharmacies into the network. Behzed and his team bring an enormous amount of expertise and experience to the group. We’re looking forward to supporting him with his new business endeavour and helping him provide the local community with a superior professional healthcare service.’
