    Default Zoom Pharmacy is awesome - and free

    How's this:
    Changed my mother to ZOOM Pharmacy. It's an online thing. Well, for us it is.
    Either get docs to fax prescription, or upload it yourself...whichever way you want.


    A)It's free, including free shipping and free packing

    B)They packed her pills into this thing, you pull the little packs through this box, kind of like one of those stamp dispenser boxes....they're marked day/morning day/evening etc
    That's free too

    Her insulin was packed in a polystyrene thing with those cool packs in them

    Best chemist ever!!!

    Used to cost her $58 each time here she said.

    OK, Husband had the free chemist (mailed by son), but this beats them...they way they packed it and the pill dispenser thing.....

    That is very interesting. I have often wondered how they performed and it will be good to read any other comments. I am curious as to how they can do this without charges.

    The govt pays. Sure there's the $5 bit....but pharmacies make HEAPS on other stuff the sell. They sure aren't poor at all.

    Zoom has quite a number of google reviews...see the comments there.

    Yeah we have free pharmacy here in Christchurch however there is often a significant wait if you go in to get your prescription on foot, it's got to the point where I am thinking of paying the $5 for each item and going back to my old chemist.

    The time sitting around and having to go into town to get the script is a pain I can do without when my local chemist is just round the corner.

    piroska, sounds like something that would be good for wifey and her pill taking/injections' regime, but she has been on this for so long and our chemist has been very good on advising.

    The last review, Zoom would have had trouble with the name, sounds like a name that responds on Voda. enquiries.

    lurking.

    Wait. This is how it was with husbands old chemist, they started at $3, then $2 then free, way before Chemist Warehouse arrived. It was a maori owned centre.
    But once everyone else started to copy (Countdown Pharmacy etc) it was a whole lot quicker.

    There isn't one in hawkes bay, hence Zoom for my mum.

    I get exactly one bottle of pills every month so it's not worth me doing the free chemists....but I also buy non medicine chemist items online, several far cheaper chemists around than down here, thats for sure.

    My mum gets this cream for her varicose, here $38. Online $12.

    I don't mean to mock or bash anyone, but is this only avaialable for people on benefits? Or do workers get it free too?

    Chemist Warehouse free to everyone if you have one close to you or order online I guess.

    Warning: Lengthy delays if you go in on foot to the one in Christchurch South City, up to half an hour to save $20 for me.

    Anyone can use any chemist they like, anywhere in the country, regardless of how much they earn.
    Chemists don't check that you know....
