note that pharmacies in many parts of the world, at least in all of Europe, are quite different from chemists/drugstores, as they sell mainly medicine and in Europe typically have the legally guaranteed monopoly to sell pharmaceuticals.

Chemists/drugstores nowadays mainly sell stuff for cleaning (the house, yourself and kids, toilet paper ...), often also some organic food (drinks, snacks, no grocery or meat), diapers, batteries, some makeup,candles, some stationery...
but there are very few of the old kind left (that also sold stuff like chemicals and others not pre-confectioned but by weight).

cheers,
