The Medicine Chest Pharmacy was established in 1990 - we have been in business for 22 years and have more than 100 years of experience between usThe Medicine Chest Pharmacy came into existence in August of 1990 under the proprietorship of Lyn Terry. A year later in October of 1991 Lynne Booth joined the pharmacy. Over the years they have been ably assisted by various locum pharmacists. In 2010 Amina Ismail joined the team on a permanent basis and Sally Mucklow, our locum, has been with us since 2012. Between us we have well over 100 years of retail pharmacy experience.

The front shop has been manned by a number of different ladies over the years. These days our staff are mostly retired ladies who work for us part time. You will all have enjoyed chats with Eldah, who has been with us for ages, Jenny, Priscilla, Lindsay and latterly Heather. Many of you know our sisters, Bev, Linda, Barbara and occasionally Viv.

The Medicine Chest Pharmacy is located in Chisipite Shopping Centre, Harare.

In 2017 we will mark our 27th birthday, an achievement of which we are really proud. Not only that but we can still boast having customers who have been with us since those early days. Today many of their children and grandchildren (can you believe it!!) are also customers! We feel privileged to count many of them among our friends. We like to pride ourselves on our professionalism and like to think we can provide you with accurate information on your queries.

Over the years we have found ourselves in several homes. The shopping centre unfortunately has had a checkered history. We like shop owners in many areas find we are filling the role of sanitary engineers as well providing staff and support for ongoing clean up exercises. We are pleased to be returning something to the community that has supported us for so many years. Our services include an SRN on duty every morning except Wednesday. We do direct billing to GP Network, MASCA and Alliance Medical Aid scheme and have plans to add Liberty Medical Aid in the near future.
