All Your Essentials

Dis-Chem Pharmacies have remained open and fully operational during the lockdown period. Both their physical and online stores have been well stocked to ensure that you never run out of essentials. From immune-boosting vitamins to chronic medication, body and bath goodies and even Dis-Chem's range of health food products, you can still live your healthiest life during lockdown.

COVID-19 Precautions And Measures 

Dis-Chem has implemented limits on the number of products a single customer may purchase, to avoid panic buying. Similarly, their stores have massively ramped up their delivery services, with a maximum of seven days delay in processing for delivery direct to your door. If you would rather do your shopping at one of their stores, there are a number of health and safety precautions in place to protect both you and their staff from COVID-19. These precautions include:

Need to stock up on your chronic medication? Dis-Chem offers a Pack My Meds service to streamline your customer experience and avoid waiting in long queues. You can also opt to Click and Collect your other essential items to minimise time spent at the store.

In addition to these measures, Dis-Chem Pharmacies are working tirelessly to restock their cleaning supplies, tissues and other products. With an added promise of keeping to their same low prices throughout the lockdown on all items, Dis-Chem is definitely showing their loyal customers utmost support during this difficult time.

Clinic Care 

Dis-Chem Clinics are actively working during the lockdown period as well. These clinics offer a variety of medical services, including flu vaccinations, HIV testing and pre-natal support. At their busiest stores, Dis-Chem have deployed additional staff to assist as many people in as quick a time as possible. These stores will also be well stocked with flu vaccines to help you get through the coming cold months without nasty flu complications. Certain store clinics will be open all day over weekends until the end of May to assist with this process, including Dis-Chem at Cresta Shopping Centre.

Drive-Thru COVID-19 Testing 

Data has shown that an increase in testing for COVID-19 is one of the best ways to get ahead of the curve and prevent uncontrolled infection. The South African government aims to be able to conduct 30,000 tests per day by the end of April. However, as testing stations and laboratories may be inundated with tests, they need a little help to achieve this goal. That's why Dis-Chem Pharmacies have stepped up to offer Drive-Thru testing at a number of their stores across the country! There are currently four drive-thru testing stations situated in Gauteng: Centurion Mall in Pretoria, Olympus Plaza in Pretoria, Fourways Mall in Sandton and BluBird Centre in Athol Oaklands.

Here's how it works:

R2 million To The Solidarity Fund

In response to President Cyril Ramaphosa's call for donations to the Solidarity Fund, Dis-Chem Pharmacies have pledged R2 million in support. But, that's not all! Dis-Chem is asking their benefit members to donate their cash back points to the fund, offering to match each donation rand for rand. So, let's all rally together to get behind this great initiative and help those less fortunate during this time. As the president has said, "Together we will overcome this pandemic."
