Even though the city of Paris already enjoys many pharmacies, there is one making a splash. We must say this drugstore is the biggest in town, and in France, set in the city center.
To find it, head the second basement of Forum Des Halles, in Paris 1st arrondissement. Or to put it another way, you will not miss it with its 2,050 sqm, 4.5km of shelves, 40,000 references and 340 brands available. To manage this gigantic flagship launched by Pharmabest group, and able to welcome 1,200 customers a day, 49 employees work on site!
Out of the 2,050sqm surface, 1,550sqm are devoted to personal care products and 500sqm to subscriptions delivery.
Open since September 3, this huge pharmacy is also focusing on the future. Le Parisien says that for instance, it provides three small connected rooms, by the many checkouts.
Coming up, customers can enjoy remote-consultations, tests, and even vaccines. Note that this big futuristic pharmacy will soon provide a free Covid-19 testing day on Saturday September 12, 2020.
But then, what to expect from this huge pharmacy? In addition to many medicines, Le Parisien reveals that you can enjoy a wide beauty product area with creams, lotions, and even makeup. Men will not be left out with a corner including at least 500 references of male beauty products.
The daily also says this very big drugstore is “halfway between the hypermarket, the American-style drugstore, and the health center” as it also enjoys a mini hair salon in the hair area. Do not hesitate to come and try treatments such as dye products.
A bit further away, enjoy essential oils and organic products, as well as products devoted to babies and even food for athletes.
With all this, the daily says the average cart costs around €40, that is to say 3.5 times more than in a classic local pharmacy.
