Accessibility, availability, and affordability
Aside from constant development, Pharmacity also focuses on building customer service processes that emphasise convenience.
This includes convenient accessibility, which means customers have easy access to more Pharmacity stores with longer opening hours than any other pharmacy chain in Vietnam.
|At present, Pharmacity has over 1,100 stores and 5,600 talented pharmacists nationwide, ready to serve any customer needs |

Convenient affordability means that Pharmacity supplies products at an affordable and suitable price, with many special loyalty programmes that boast almost 10 million members.
With these achievements, the company also won the prestigious 2021 Asia Pacific Enterprise Award in the Inspirational Brand category and was named No. 1 CareerBuilder Vietnam Employer of Choice in the Healthcare category for the second consecutive year.
