Storbie Welcomes Pfizer to Pharmacy Supplier Network

Storbie is excited to announce that Pfizer has joined the Storbie Pharmacy Supplier Network.

Pfizer Consumer Healthcare is one of New Zealand’s leading providers of healthcare products across a range of categories. They strive to bring new and better solutions to market that help consumers support their health and enhance personal well-being. Their growth is driven through major global brands including Centrum© and Advil©. The division’s major categories consist of Pain Management, Dietary Supplements, Respiratory and Personal Care.

Pharmacies on our Pharmacy Pro Plan can now connect with Pfizer. As soon as Pfizer’s products are added to the network, pharmacies will be able to sell Pfizer products on their Storbie pharmacy websites. Products will appear on pharmacy websites with descriptions, images and more. Products will be automatically updated by Pfizer, allowing pharmacists to spend more time with their patients, not with supplier product data!

Pfizer has been operational in New Zealand since 1961 and has become a primary provider for over the counter healthcare products. Some of the Pfizer products that will be available include:

  • Centrum-World’s #1 multivitamin brand* specifically formulated to help fill nutritional gaps in your diet

    Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. Vitamin and mineral supplements should not replace a balanced diet.

  • Advil – World’s #1 selling OTC analgesic brand which provides effective relief for many aches and pains*.

    This medicine may not be right for you. Read the label before purchase. Follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist talk to your health professional. Incorrect use could be harmful. Do not use if you have stomach ulcers.

  • Dimetapp – The trusted brand to relieve the family’s tough cold and flu symptoms.

  • Robitussin – NZ’s trusted cough liquid brand that relieves the family’s cough symptoms.

    Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist, see your health professional. For additional information on dosage instructions, warnings, precautions, contraindications and side effects contact your healthcare professional or refer to product packaging.
