Chemist Warehouse has broken into the European market
Chemist Warehouse has celebrated the opening of its first store in Europe, in Blanchardstown, Ireland.
The new addition joins more than 450 Australian stores, 16 New Zealand stores and one store in China.
In addition to pharmacy dispensary services, the new Irish pharmacy will stock a range of Australian brands as well as local product offerings across the health, wellness, beauty, baby, cosmetics and fragrance sectors.
“We are thrilled to open the doors to our first European store today,” said Chemist Warehouse director, Mario Tascone.
“It is a landmark day for the Chemist Warehouse Group and we couldn’t be happier.
“It is always such a huge undertaking to open a store in a new market, let alone during a global pandemic.
“We are proud that we can finally welcome our Blanchardstown customers and show them the true passion and commitment of the Chemist Warehouse team and massive range of affordable products.”
Meanwhile closer to home, Chemist Warehouse provided the 30,000 Toyota AFL Grand Final patrons with gift packs to use while watching the 2020 Premiership.
The packs included hand sanitiser, anti-bacterial wipes, sunscreen, a football, a drink bottle and face masks that have been provided by partners Goat Soap, Carroten and Softmed.
Event goers were not required to wear a face mask while attending the Final at The Gabba but these were made available to use if they wished to wear a mask in-stadium or when travelling home from the event.
AFL General Manager of Commercial Kylie Rogers said Chemist Warehouse’s fan gift packs would give football fans the opportunity to enjoy the landmark 2020 Toyota AFL Grand Final as it was held in Brisbane while practicing COVID-safe behaviour.
Mario Tascone said the discount giant was excited to partner with the AFL for the Grand Final, and to provide everyone in attendance “with wellness solutions to get them through the big game”.
“It’s always great to be part of the AFL’s biggest day of the year,” he said.
“A big congratulations to the AFL, QLD Government and of course the great people of Queensland who did an incredible job to rescue the season and deliver an exciting product for all Aussies to enjoy, during a what has been a tough year for everyone. Well done!”
