The Arrie Nel Pharmacy in Ifafi has launched a courier service countrywide as an additional service to the community.
Owner, Christo van Staden, came upon the idea after hearing customers talk about having to drive to other towns to drop off items. “I thought, we have delivery vehicles driving up and down daily, we might as well render this additional service to the community.”
And now Hartbeespoort residents can send items – anything that fits into the pharmacy’s delivery trucks – to various towns countrywide. The local vehicles drive as far as 300 km, but if customers need deliveries in more remote areas, Arrie Nel Ifafi makes use of the countrywide group delivery vehicles.
The packages are delivered to other Arrie Nel pharmacies where receivers can collect it, or for an extra fee, door-to-door deliveries can be done. The courier fees are very reasonable, for instance a delivery in Hartbeespoort, Brits and surrounding areas cost R50, Johannesburg and Rustenburg R150. Prices to other areas vary.
Parcels must be properly packaged and clearly marked and book your delivery in advance. For more information, prices and bookings, contact Bianca on 012 259 1616 or WhatsApp 073 430 1619.
