Just got ripped off!

published

I went to the chemist and the stupid woman gave me the wrong change.
I went back and asked for my change that I was owed, and I pretty much got treated like a criminal!
I will never be going back to that store again! What a joke!

Ok , but some product not matching pics on website.

published

Didn’t receive the same items we had ordered on the website. Otherwise great value and fast delivery, may will purchase some product in a store in person.

Atrocious customer service.

published

The pharmacist at Amcal Belconnen is borderline abusive. Screams and shouts at his customers. I would not recommend shopping here.

Disorganised and unprofessional, travelled long distance for interview and received no follow up call post interview as promised, can only imagine the working conditions.

False Advertising on Web Site

published

Web site advertise states Ozheath Arthritis cream $17.99. When you go into the store (only 3 stores in Western Australia) it is $25.95. The excuse is that it is a web only special for click and collect. The web site does not say this at all. They are falsely advertising. Will support my local chemist who is more honourable.

Good communication skills .

published

This store has everything laid out very well, gifts on one side, medicine and personal hygiene on the other, then toys and items of clothing, sun glasses ! Staff are friendly and help is there when you ask for it ! Always plenty to choose ,for different occasions ! A pleasant experience to have each time we make that visit of personal care.

Significantly Overcharge

published

Amcal Chemist - Bundall are a complete rip-off. They charge significantly more (25%) for exactly the same prescription medicine bought elsewhere which is disgusting considering what the product is.

Ridiculously Expensive

published

Bought my meds to this store located in Newington , NSW. I opted to get a generic brand and was surprised for the cost. It was almost twice as much compared to my local chemist. I just don't have any choice to buy it elsewhere and I need to take the meds sooner.

Won't Price Match Online to Instore

published

Checked Gripe Water price online - $5.99 on special - went to local Amcal store - price $9.49 - read online FAQ - Amcal won't price match to online or in store prices???
How can they justify this when they are the same company????
Walked out without purchasing the product - going to Chemist Warehouse.
The only good thing I can say about our local Amcal is that they are open all day on a Sunday which helps if you have a late afternoon appointment and need medication.

Overpriced Generic Products

published

Just purchased 3 generic items from the Bardens store in Darwin and paid $67 compared to the same 3 brand items from Chemist Warehouse that came to $46. How can they justify increasing generics above brand? This is a massive increase. Sorry you have lost a customer and everyone else I tell...

Amcal Click-and-Collect censored my negative review

published

I placed a Click-and-Collect order on-line and received email confirmation that my order was being processed and that I would be advised when it was ready for pickup. After a week I rang to check my order status and was told that it had been delivered to my local Amcal store, but that the store had simply put the goods into stock and had failed to contact me. This was soon resolved and I picked up the goods some 10 days after ordering.
Days later I was invited, by email, to review my transaction, which I did giving a polite but negative review.
Today I received an email advising that my review had been "moderated" and would not be published!
This amounts to censorship.

Overcharged

published

The Wonthaggi pharmacy charged us a dollar more than our home pharmacist. When asked why, they said it was so we would reach your medicare threshold faster!!
That's a bit like your coffee shop charging you double for your first cup for two stamps so you get you free coffee faster!!
