Why we are different

in addition to offering AA Smartfuel savings, Belmont Pharmacy also has other major points of differences. Kathryn Pollock is a trained Naturopath, so they offer an extensive range of good health products as well as traditional medicines that are not found in many other NZ Pharmacies.
The focus of the seven-strong Belmont Pharmacy team is very much on providing the best service around health in NZ, so they don't stock non-health items such as sunglasses and perfumes.
 With AA Smartfuel, we really feel we have an advantage over other pharmacies offering FlyBuys and the like," adds Allan Pollock. "We are the only pharmacy in this area (& now the only NZ Internet Pharmacy) to offer AA Smartfuel savings and with our local service station being BP – that offers the AA Smartfuel savings – the fit is just perfect."

About us

Allan and his wife Kathryn are both Pharmacists and have owned Belmont Pharmacy for over 20 years, since 1989. When they first bought the business Allan was one of NZ's leading mid-field rugby backs. When they met while attending Pharmacy School then based in Wellington, Allan was a key member of the Wellington NPC team that included famous All Blacks Stu Wilson, Bernie Fraser, Alan Hewson and Murray Mexted. Allan followed 'Shore girl' Kathryn back home and they have been here ever since. He then played rugby for North Harbour and was also the coach when Harbour famously won the Ranfurly Shield against Canterbury a few years back in 2006. He has also since had stints coaching at Toyota and NEC in Japan. He currently oversees grade coaching at the East Coast Bays Rugby Club. The Pollock family live locally, close to Takapuna Beach. "We love living so close to the beach. It's one of the best urban beaches in the world. We are very lucky," says Allan.
