Our strategy is built around our pharmacy first approach, which means that we have a Dispensary in all of our stores to service our customers at any time when they enter a Dis-Chem Pharmacy store. As a leading specialist in beauty, healthy food, sport supplements, health and well-being, we offer the widest ranges in these categories and expert advice. The brand is synonymous with excellent customer service, and we pride ourselves in being a destination discount brand following an Everyday Low Price (“EDLP”) strategy.
