In addition to pharmaceutical products and services, our retail pharmacies also sell personal care and beauty, health care and nutrition and baby care products as well as confectionary, dry grocery, household and other ancillary products. As at 2016, we had 101 stores in South Africa and two partner stores in Namibia.
