McLaren Vale Chemmart Pharmacy, SA

Having used Think National on three very different refits over the past three years I

always took great comfort in knowing that Sam was running the projects as he had a great

understanding of the Pharmacy industry, customer requirements and the ability to manage

trades people and keep the costs well within budget.

In particular with the redevelopment and expansion of the local Shopping Centre in

McLaren Vale, an opportunity emerged to move our store to a larger tenancy, expand our

product range and investigate new ways of improving customer dwell time, engagement

and flow. In these uncertain times, it was definitely a difficult decision to make the


With help from Think , the refit was tightly costed and controlled, incorporating cutting

Dealing with ThinkNational for our new shop fit was a breeze from concept to completion! The

staff were extremely knowledgeable and helped with every aspect of planning, design and

construction. As an independent pharmacy the store design was completely up to us and whilst

we had a vision in our minds of what we wanted, ThinkNational provided the expertise to make

that vision a reality.

Sam and the team from ThinkNational stuck with us to resolve the issues to our complete

satisfaction. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend them if you’re thinking about a shop re-fit.
