Pharma Valu is a group of 6 pharmacies, located in Queenswood, Elardus Park, Sunnyside, Hazelwood, Les Marais and Helderkruin.
The Pharma Valu name was started in 2000 by ex-Springbok Hannes Strydom, who is himself a pharmacist and is often seen at the dispensary of any branch serving customers. With such a hands-on approach by the owner, shopping at Pharma Valu can only be a rewarding experience.
Five of the branches are owned solely by Hannes Strydom, while Helderkruin is a joint venture with Deon van Rensburg, former Lions rugby player. Deon has a Master's degree in Pharmacy and he is the dispensing pharmacist at the Helderkruin branch.
Our largest branch is located in the Queens Corner shopping centre and shoppers will find its entrance inviting, with an interesting display of gifts for young and old.
Two of our branches (Queens Corner and Sunnyside) have photo-lab facilities and can print photos from any camera, memory stick, CD or cell phone. We also do collages in sizes up to A2.
Several of our branches have an agreement with Edcon, whereby you can use your Edgars or Jet account cards to pay for any purchases. This initiative will be available at all branches within the next year.
Our dispensaries have qualified staff and our pharmacists are willing to go the extra mile to give advice and assistance with medical-aids. We are contracted in to most medical-aids, through Script savers which ensure we give our patients the best deal on their prescriptions.
Pharma Valu also has a Clinic Sister at each branch, although the Elardus Park and Helderkruin Sisters are currently only available at certain times. (Contact these branches for more information). The clinics provide baby vaccinations, blood pressure, cholesterol & blood sugar tests, wound-care, family planning, Vitamin B injections and other health related services..
Our pharmacies are stocked with a variety of toiletries, baby care, hair care and cosmetic products
If you visit our vitamin and supplement sections our friendly and knowledgeable staff will assist you with your needs in USN, Muscle Science, SA Supplements, Evox, Vital, Natura, Health & Wellness and other well known ranges.
Our mission statement is "Because we care".
