Peter Angelos ‘devastated’ by SA government’s plan for 24/7 pharmacies


Adelaide pharmacy owner Peter Angelos has been left devastated by a recent SA Government plan to open three 24/7 pharmacies.

According to The Advertiser, SA Premier Peter Malinauskas confirmed last week that two Chemist Warehouse facilities and one National Pharmacies outlet will start to provide after-hours services from next year.

Mr Angelos told The Advertiser he was worried the plan would put a strain on his business, Midnight Pharmacy.

“It’ll kill my business… and we’ve been here for the last 30 years,” he said.

“It will impact all the single owner pharmacies.

“We’ve attempted a couple of times to stay open (24/7), and after about midnight there’s hardly anyone around. I just don’t think we’ve got the population to support it.”
