Bath, Body, Natural Health, and Homeopathic Products for more than 135 years.
Merz Apothecary is a Chicago landmark (tour buses from around the Midwest make regular stops at the Apothecary) and a mecca for people who want unique natural products for their bodies. The store sends packages to customers around the world and has been featured often in local, national, and international media. Over the years the careful product selection has continued, and now the shop boasts, among its impressive product assortment, the largest collection of natural and luxury soaps from around the world under one roof.
Despite the growth and attention, the store has not lost its focus on the original Apothecary concept. The staff hails from around the world and collectively speaks seven languages. Although international customers no longer make up the majority of the Apothecary clientele, their numbers continue to grow and now draw from all around the world. Customers seek out the well-trained staff for the 134 years of health and product knowledge it has inherited. The location and people have changed over the years, but the Apothecary's goal has remained the same: providing superior and personal service for each customer's total well-being.
Our view is that your health is too important to take chances with. We believe that you're better off with a product selection that has been carefully honed over more than a century. We believe you'll be healthier if you use the finest products from around the world; products which promote external as well as internal health and mental as well as physical well being. And finally, we are sure you'll be better served by a staff that has 134 years of accumulated experience and constant interaction with people in need of help. Our goal is still the same as it was on opening day in 1875: to provide the best service and products to help our customers lead happier, healthier lives. If that seems a bit grand, it's not. It's only what you deserve
There is no other apothecary in the country, let alone Chicago, that can match our extensive knowledge, our rich history, and our vast product selection from around the world in natural health, bath and body, skin care, fragrance, herbs, teas and homeopathics.
