Our History

Schuin-Villa Pharmacy was established in 1989 and is currently one of the largest independently owned and discount pharmacies in South Africa.

We have grown from a small neighbourhood drugstore to a modern pharmacy offering traditional prescription services, quality products and friendly service. Over the years our clients have come to know and trust us. In 2008 the pharmacy undertook a revamp. The interior design of the building is now fresh and modern. 

Partners Annelize Fourie and Sonia Saayman have more than 30 years experience in the trade. We understand that customers desire to choose from a broad selection of products and still pay discounted prices. We believe in a human touch, especially when it comes to something as personal as health supplies and prescriptions. 

This customer and quality orientated operating philosophy facilitated Schuin-Villa Pharmacy's rise in becoming a premier provider of health and wellness products to the Port Elizabeth area. We currently employ nine full-time pharmacists to ensure that every customer receives professional and personal attention. Visit us in store and meet the team!
