A dozen or more great reasons to leave the house
This Week in St Kilda
Solly dispenses his last script
After 37 years on Fitzroy Street, pharmacist Solly Lew processed his last script in St Kilda on Friday.
Solly has dispensed from three locations along Fitzroy Street, but most recently faced the nightmare of having a national chemist chain move in right next door.
TWiSK wishes him well in his next chapter.
While we don’t know the exact corporate shenanigans, Chemist Warehouse appears to have absorbed Solly’s store and are also opening a new outlet in a double shop on Acland Street.
