Ian Tauman, Director of Direct Chemist Outlet, said: “Our vision is to transform how customers engage with pharmacies and to empower people to make informed decisions on their health and well-being. We want to inspire healthier communities by offering accessible healthcare products and related services at affordable prices.”

The first Direct Chemist Outlet store was opened in Werribee, Victoria 2006. Since then, the group has grown considerably throughout Australia, a testament to their commitment to customer service and offering a varied product range at the best prices.

“We’ve listened closely to our store teams and customers to understand what they wanted most from their local Direct Chemist Outlet store, and tailored the experiences to serve these needs” said Barbie Rodgers, Retail Manager, DCO Dakabin.

With over 75 pharmacies nationwide, they are looking to promote their ideology and brand to future pharmacies within local communities.
