What are Dispensary's opening hours?
Dispensary's opening hours are Monday-Friday 8am-6pm
A common miscommunication that happens is the 72 hours that needs to be allowed for pick-up of prescriptions. For example if you drop off your prescription on Monday morning then your prescription will be available to pick up Thursday morning. A big mis-conception is that you add the same day of dropping off your request to the 3 day allowed time for dispensary to sort out your medication.
