Moonee’s Pharmacy is a pleasant blend of the modern pharmacy and the traditional chemist’s shop. Ranged behind the dispensary is a wall of historic cures- a display of medicines, scripts and equipment from the old South Grafton Pharmacy, collected by owner Dr Deborah Hancock and added to by locals.
The shop has been divided into easy to navigate sections, including: a vitamin bar; ‘health hut’ for health management; sun protection and rehydration; injury and wound care; cosmetics and beauty, gifts and homewares and even sleep apnea.
“It’s a community pharmacy,” explains Karlie Green, one of the pharmacy’s friendly faces who has worked in pharmacies for over 20 years. Karlie who is now the retail manager was helped by the owners, Dr Deborah Hancock and her husband John, to add official qualifications to her extensive practical experience; completing TAFE Certificate IV in her industry and moving from being a pharmacy assistant to a dispensary technician.
Karlie says she enjoyed studying microbiology and pharmacology as well as business. “I love to help customers with their needs – every circumstance is different. Our customers almost become part of the pharmacy.”
Moonee Beach Pharmacy opens seven days a week.
