Dis-Chem – History
Dis-Chem started out as a discount retail pharmacy in 1978 in Mondeor in the south of Johannesburg and has become a nationwide chain of pharmacies that strive to bring their customers the best in health care products and the best possible prices. In 2004 the first Dis-Chem opened in Cape Town and signaled the start of a nationwide rollout of pharmacies.
In 2006 the owners of Dis-Chem — the Saltzman — started the Dis-Chem Foundation to support various charitable causes in South Africa. 2013 signaled another growth spurt for Dis-Chem when they acquired a controlling stake in CJ Distribution and a non-controlling interest in Pharmacy Development Academy and Evening Star. This marked Dis-Chem’s entry into the wholesale business.
The 100th Dis-Chem store opened its doors in 2016 and, in the same year, listed 27,5% of its listed share capital on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. Now, in 2018, Dis-Chem is celebrating its 40th anniversary — and what a long way they’ve come!
