Wizard Pharmacy will open its first store in South Australia in March, in the suburb of Strathalbyn.

James Wittwer, the franchisee of the new pharmacy, cited the brand’s commitment to holistic care as the primary factor in opting for a Wizard store. He described the chain as “a progressive business looking ahead at new opportunities and ways to do things not just differently, but better.

West Australia-headquartered Wizard Pharmacy has 42 stores across WA and the NT and operates the Wizard Rewards Loyalty program. 

SA launch may lead to further interstate growth

COO Sally Parker said the SA expansion sets the stage for broader expansion ambitions throughout this year, hinting more states may yet be on the radar.

“We’re really confident in the franchise model we have built, not only for the way it allows better care for customers and patients but also for the many benefits to our franchisees and their teams,” she said.

“We can’t wait to share our proven franchise model that delivers greater value to community pharmacies with even more pharmacy owners across Australia.”
