TerryWhite Chemmart is interested in saving our customers money. Where equivalent less expensive brands of a medication are available, you will be asked if you would like us to substitute the brand you ordered with these. These less expensive brands are in no way inferior in quality or strength, but are less expensive due to the companies supplying them being more competitive in pricing. In many cases, the same companies make both brands!

Why can I only order one lot of an National Health Service (NHS) item at a time?

The government under the National Health Service (NHS) subsidises many medicines so that all Australians can have access to affordable prescription medicines. Because they are paying for some or all of the cost of these, they impose restrictions on how frequently they can be dispensed. This varies from item to item but you can ask your pharmacist what the time interval is on a particular product. In most cases the time interval is 21 days. Items dispensed before this time interval cannot be covered under the NHS except in special circumstances.

Can I return prescription medicine or any preparation for oral use for a refund?

No. Unfortunately due to Health regulations, medicines including any preparation that is taken orally cannot be returned for credit. This is because once the product has left the pharmacy, the storage conditions of the product cannot be guaranteed and also it is possible the product could be tampered with.

Do the TerryWhite Chemmart stores keep the same products as listed on the TerryWhite Chemmart website?

TerryWhite Chemmart does endeavour to stock the same products online and in store. Products that are stored in the fridge and heavy or bulky items cannot be supplied through TerryWhite Chemmart website.

I can only see "In Store Only" for a product I want to purchase. What does that mean?

"In store only" means that that product is temporarily unavailable in our online warehouse. We recommend contacting your nearest store to enquire about local store availability, or alternatively check back on the site in a few days. Products listed as "In Store Only" may not be available at all TerryWhite Chemmart stores, however we do endeavour to stock these where possible. Please contact your local store to confirm availability.

Are the prices at the TerryWhite Chemmart website different to instore at TerryWhite Chemmart?

In most cases, the prices are the same but they can vary on some items. Please check with your local TerryWhite Chemmart store on the price and availability of products.

Why are some of the prices online different to the prices found instore?

The TerryWhite Chemmart website is an independently owned business, as are all of the pharmacies in the TerryWhite Chemmart group, and as such, while prices are broadly consistent, each store owner determines the pricing in their own store. The price shown on TerryWhite Chemmart website is the advertised price by the owner of the TerryWhite Chemmart website business and that price may not be the advertised price by the owner of another TerryWhite Chemmart store. There are many valid reasons why the price of products on-line are less than the price of the same products in a physical retail store. There are also genuine reasons why the price of products in a particular location are less than the price of the same products in another location.
