The pharmacy was opened before 1986.  It was owned by Mr W.L. and Mrs A. Bosch from 1986 to 2019.  The pharmacy is now part of Alpha Pharm Corporate.  Its staff has largely remained the same since the pharmacy was bought by Alpha Pharm.  It is located in High Street, the historical main street of Makhanda (Grahamstown).  The building, known as City Chambers, was once the site of the city’s first post office, which was destroyed by fire in 1899.  The pharmacy is situated close to Rhodes University campus and the law courts.
