    Hi!

    I love the place, but just want to comment and say that they have not had all the items I usually buy from the Dischem available, for some unknown reason. In particular shampoo and the eco-friendly Dischem brand of household cleaners.

    Please ensure that there is enough stock on hand.

    Thank you

    I contacted the Dischem in Mondeor with regard to one of the beauty products that I could not find anywhere. I spoke to a very friendly and helpful lady by the name of Mandy who was willing to keep the last 2 products for me.

    Always a quick and easy shopping trip, the way it should be. It is strange though that all the Dischem branches don't have the same prices on certain items...

    When this Dischem opened its doors, it gave back some vigor to the flailing Victory Park Center. People flocked in for the amazing specials, and I winced for the local pharmacists in the area.

    So, on the plus side, Dischem has good deals, and no levies! And the points that you acquire on your loyalty card eventually lead to some cash back, which is always a perk. The pharmacists seem friendly and knowledgeable, and quite helpful.

    But, oh my word- this Dishem employs throngs of people - and with all those employees bustling around, one would think that there would be better customer service. These employees speak loudly in the aisles about annoying customers ( witnessed twice), and laugh garrulously as they pack the shelves. On many occasion, I've had to ask staff to excuse me, so that i could retrieve an item off the shelf, without tripping over the employee.
    The staff are also pretty disgruntled when you ask for advice, and seem to have very little knowledge of their stock. I was once showed a wide variety of things when I asked for a knee brace. I also continuously find that they're out of stock of baby essentials, and tell me to go to another store! When I have written my name down in the "book", to be called when they receive stock of a certain item, I was never contacted. And this is after speaking to the floor manger.

    These problems seem to have also been experienced by my friends and family, and so seem to be be pervasive. Hoping that the management will get this store running better.
