With over 1,700 pharmacies across the UK, what are the key pros to shopping at an online pharmacy?

Our online pharmacy’s success is due to the fact that we are already a trusted national pharmacy provider throughout the UK. Customers are able to access pharmacy services and products at a convenient time to them, safe in the knowledge that they are purchasing from an online pharmacy registered with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain. One of the main attractions to online pharmacy shopping is the fact that customers are offered a discreet service for a range of conditions at a time to suit them.

You mention May-July as a key selling point across the website due to the hay fever season. Aside from the Christmas period, what other times of year are key selling points and for what products?

New Year is traditionally a busy period for us especially in certain categories such as weight management and smoking cessation. It’s typically this time of year that people make New Year’s resolutions and so products and services we offer within these two categories tie in quite nicely. Within weight management, alli is our top seller at this time of year and within smoking cessation the nicotine replacement therapies prove very popular.

The New Year time also sees customers wanting to improve their health if they have overindulged at Christmas time and as a result we see products within the vitamins and supplements ranges to be popular.

Your programme description depicts November - January as the peak times for the website, notably for the Christmas period. As the website is a pharmacy, what products do well during this period and why do you think this is?

As well as traditional pharmacy products, we also stock beauty and fragrance items. We consolidate this into a Christmas gift range which offers customers the choice of lots of gifts within beauty and fragrance at affordable prices. The fact that these ranges are price driven probably contributes to why we find the lead up to Christmas to be a notably busy period for us.

When are your last order dates during the run up to Christmas?

Sunday 18th December is the final date for delivery
