Description

Winton Pharmacy was first established in 1907 by Thomas Walker, and is now owned by Michelle and Geoff Carleton.

Michelle and Geoff originally owned Carletons Pharmacy in Otautau and in 1999 purchased Winton Pharmacy. They ran both businesses until 2003, when unable to find a Pharmacist to work in Otautau, they converted it to a Depot Pharmacy and dispensed those prescriptions from Winton. Having brought up children and lived most of their adult lives in Otautau, we have a commitment to give as great a service as we can to the people of Western and Central Southland.

Our philosophy is simple, "treat everyone equally, and with the respect we would expect if we were the customer." A friendly face, a warm greeting, and a helpful attitude.
