The Beginning 

CARiNG Pharmacy was established in 1994 by 5 pharmacists, who were course-mates in the School of Pharmacy, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). The first CARiNG Outlet opened in Taman Muda, Cheras. At the time, the awareness of community pharmacy services was still low. The founders, took these important steps to instill the value of pharmacists in the healthcare profession by:

  1. Providing 12 hours a day, 7 days a week  full time pharmacist service.
  2. Providing easily accessible pharmacist counseling service, free blood pressure checks and other health checks at a minimum fee. Designing the store with a modern, open concept to maximise interaction with customers and merchandise
  3. With this successful concept, CARiNG Pharmacy is growing fast in the Klang Valley, Melaka and Johor Bahru.

 

The First Mall Outlet

In 2003, after successfully opening 13 high street outlets, CARiNG entered a new era by establishing the first mall outlet in One Utama Shopping Complex. From there, the number of mall outlets has since flourished to more than 10 outlets in 2011. The establishment signals CARiNG Pharmacy’s entry into the modern trend of providing more varieties of skin care and personal care. The new concept store with vibrant design, organised merchandising and directed displays were also pioneered at the Bangsar Village outlet in 2005. Currently in 2019, we have more than 120 outlets in West Malaysia and 1 outlet in East Malaysia.


 
 
Entering Hypermarkets

In 2008, CARiNG@Tesco was established in Tesco Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya. We have 1 CARiNG@Tesco outlet and 7 CARiNG@AEON Malls as of 2019. Being the first pharmacy within a hypermarket in Malaysia, CARiNG@Tesco and CARiNG@AEON Malls continues the spirit of CARiNG Pharmacy by providing full time pharmacist service, professional counseling and health check.

Supporting The Front Line

With the increasing number of outlets, the first support office was established in Sea Park, Petaling Jaya in 1998. From there, we have established a fully functional system in our new head office in Seksyen 51, Petaling Jaya. With more than 100 supporting staff from Information Systems, Human Resources, Finance, Operations, Marketing, Warehouse, Training, Pharmacy, Purchasing and Supply Chain departments, we take pride in making sure the business runs smoothly and efficiently for CARiNG Pharmacy.

 

CARiNG’s Shopper Loyalty Program

The objectives of CARiNG One Shop One School are to serve the community through first aid subsidy to local primary and secondary schools, to create health awareness among students, and to reduce expenditure burden of these schools. In this program, 20 selected primary and secondary schools nationwide received a few units of first aid kits for daily usage and are entitled to replenish their first aid items at dedicated CARiNG stores in 2017 and 2018. CARiNG also worked hand-in-hand with the schools to create health awareness among the students through an activation program.by medical doctors, senior diabetic nurse, physiotherapist and psychologist.
