Hello everyone!

It's my first time to write++here. I'd like to know++the differnece of some vocabulary. A few days
ago, I read some article, and there I read chemist's,pharmacy and drugstore. In korean, all of them
mean ¾à±¹ (a store where medicines are prepared and sold). but I think they are a little bit
different. I'd like to know it.

Could you explain how different they are?

I'll waiting for your answer.

Thank you for reading.

Bye.

Seungha,Lee

I'll reply what I know. A chemist is a professional that works in chemistry. Is not usually in a
public place; he works in industry or may teach in college.

A pharmacy is a section of a drug store that makes up prescription medicine. In the USA a drug store
sells just about everything from aspirin to fishing poles. Strangely enough the corner drug store
might have a small restaurant to sell cokes and hot dogs(lunch).

I think in England a chemist is a person who we call a pharmacist.(US) The person makes up pills and
medical concotions for people.

Those words are all used to describe the same kind of store. "Chemists" is a word used in England
and some of its colonies and former colonies. "Drugstore" and "pharmacy" are used interchangably in
the US and Canada. In Canada on rare occasions you might see "chemists". I've never seen the word
used for a drugstore in the States.

The word "pharmacy" is also used to describe a place where medicines are prepared and dispensed in
hospitals and clinics. They are in that case not a store and the terms "drugstore" and "chemists"
are not used, they are always called pharmacies.
