Clive arrived in Wainuiomata in 1986 fresh out of pharmacy school. From the first time he came over the hill he was hooked as he fell in love with the town, the community, and the landscape.
In 1997 Clive bought Norfolk St Pharmacy, and in 2000 merged his business with Ian Saxby’s Pharmacy in Queen St. The business moved into the current site in 2002.
Clive is known as "The Happy Chemist" and the whole team at Clive's have a common focus:
- To make a positive difference in the community.
- To help people to feel better.
- To make Wainuiomata the healthiest and happiest town in New Zealand.
The service and innovation level at Clive's Chemist has an excellent reputation, in which Clive aims to continue setting the benchmark for pharmacy in New Zealand.
Extra help during the COVID-19 lockdown
Clive and his team looked for ways to help their customers to stay safe and stay well at home.
A number of Clive's Chemist customers rely on having their regular medicines packed into weekly blister-packs so that they are easier to take. These medicine packs were delivered to customers' homes every day.
