Moonee Beach Pharmacy was established with the opening of the Shopping Centre on the 21st December, 2005. The Pharmacy is owned and operated by Dr Debra Hancock (B.Pharm PhD MPS AACP JP) and her husband John Tennant with the assistance of 9 staff. It prides itself on good old fashioned service. It is a true Community Pharmacy where you are greeted with a smile, acknowledged by your name, treated with respect and offered the appropriate professional care and advice and thanked for your custom.
The Pharmacy is very open with natural light which creates a beautiful warm ambience. It is spacious enough to accommodate prams, wheelchairs and even shopping trolleys. It also has a play pen where the toddlers can play whilst mum and dad can browse around the store and not feel rushed or stressed whilst they get the care and advice that they may need. The play pen can even accommodate grumpy old men.
