Satisfaction* with Chemists
Source: Roy Morgan Single Source Oct 2010 - Sep 2011. Total bought from one or more Chemist(s) in the last 4 weeks n=10,406 .Satisfaction Rating based on respondents who were “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with each store bought from in the last 4 weeks.
Norman Morris, Industry Communications Director, Roy Morgan Research, says:
“Satisfaction at chemists is a highly competitive category. Just two percentage points separate the top six in this category, with Priceline Pharmacy, Amcal, and Chemist Warehouse in the top 10 of all stores tracked in the report.
“The biggest decline in satisfaction over the last quarter was for Discount Drug Stores, down two percentage points from the June ‘11 result. Chemmart, Soul Pattinson and Discount Drug Stores have lower satisfaction than other chemists. However, when compared to other retailers these scores of around 85% are relatively good.”
The complete detailed Non Food Retailer Customer Satisfaction Report provides a ranking of satisfaction among all of the stores measured and looks at long and short term trends for overall customer satisfaction, at the category level and then at the individual store level.
