In the late 1940’s, after returning from War Service, Mr Peter Hart purchased the Pharmacy at 78 Goulburn Street, Crookwell and began trading as Peter Hart Pharmacy.  Mr Hart continued to run the Pharmacy for over twenty years until his death in 1970. After his passing, his wife Mrs Alice Hart continued to own and work in the pharmacy, however she required a Pharmacist-in-charge.

In 1971, having completed his Bachelor of Pharmacy a year prior, Mr Ken Wicks accepted this opportunity and moved to Crookwell from his home town of Temora, NSW.  During this time Mrs Hart also decided to make a  subtle change to the name of the Pharmacy, to its current title of Hart’s Pharmacy.

Mrs Hart and Ken continued to work under this arrangement until early in 1985 when it came time for Mrs Hart to retire. At this time Ken purchased the business from Mrs Hart, and chose to maintain the current name of Hart’s Pharmacy for two reasons; Ken and his family enjoyed a close relationship with Mrs Hart and her children, and the Hart’s business had formed an important part of Crookwell’s history for over 40 years, and Ken wanted to respect this by honouring and maintaining this name.

In 1999 the pharmacy was demolished and rebuilt with the pharmacy now having 3 times the store space, designed to meet the needs of Crookwell moving into the 21st century. Some of the previous building’s original features, such as stained-glass windows and antique display cabinets were restored and now form important features of the renovated shop.

Ken has now been a practising Pharmacist for 48 years and his ownership of Hart’s Pharmacy is now in its 34th year. During this time Ken has employed over 30 staff members that are local to Crookwell and its surrounding area. 

We are proud sponsors of many local sporting teams and clubs including the Crookwell Green Devils Rugby League side. We proudly support the Crookwell area’s primary schools and the High School, the annual Crookwell Show and local festivals, and take part in many national and local charitable events throughout each year.

Here at Hart’s Pharmacy we are very proud to be known throughout our region for the high level of personal attention and customer service we provide. With a large team of local employee’s, we continue to strive for new ways to personally assist both our loyal existing customer’s and those that are new to our pharmacy.

Our Pharmacists

Kerry has been a Pharmacist for over 41 years and has owned Pharmacies previously in Canberra and Erina Fair on the Central Coast of NSW. He also worked in pharmacies in Port Macquarie and Grafton before moving back to Crookwell around 10 years ago. After enquiring about the possibility of work as a Pharmacist available with Ken, they soon found that they operate on the same wavelength and therefore work very successfully in the shared role of Pharmacist in Charge. On his days away from Hart’s Pharmacy, Kerry and his son Aaron run a property at Glen Erin where he breeds cattle and sheep and on occasion the odd Pea Hen. He also is an NRL tragic, his team of choice being the Canberra Raiders but also loves to watch the Cricket during the Summer months. Kerry has a partner Jenny and three grown children.

Ken is in his 48th year as a Pharmacist at Hart’s Pharmacy. He has stepped back from working a 52-hour week to around 23 hours a week but continues to enjoy the interaction with all his customers, some of the families are even 3rd or 4th generation supporters of Hart’s Pharmacy! In his spare time Ken is a passionate (some might say tragic) supporter of the St George Dragons NRL team and likes to watch every game of NRL each weekend of the season. Ken is married to Maria, a retired Registered Nurse and has four grown children and four grandchildren.

As the name suggests, Ethan is the Grandson of Ken and joined us fresh out of year 12 in 2016 looking for a step up in regular work. He completed a 12-month Pharmacy Retail Traineeship and attained a Level 2 Grade Pharmacy Assistant qualification. After his traineeship he decided to stay on with us, not in the least because he is a huge fan of his Grandmother’s cooking. His outgoing personality has proved quite the hit with all age groups of our clientele. In his spare time Ethan normally heads home to the Southern Highlands to catch up with his friends and family, likes to go out to maybe catch a band or watch the footy.

Danielle joined us in 2007 as our Pharmacy started to expand into offering other services that included the introduction of packing client’s medication into WebsterPaks as a service to the community and to our local Aged Care facility. The position of packing WebsterPaks requires someone that has an enormous attention to detail and very precise and Danielle fits this profile perfectly. This area of our business continues to grow rapidly and Danielle handles this with the expertise that is required. In her spare time Danielle is a beautiful home cook and on occasion spoils us with her homemade treats. Danielle is married to Andrew and together they have two Daughters and assorted pets at home.

As Ken’s eldest Daughter, Cassandra found herself behind the counter of Hart’s Pharmacy on weekends and school holidays as a young teenager where she remained until she was 21 when she moved to Sydney to pursue a career in sales. Over the course of the next 15-16 years she worked her way up to management positions in Sales/Marketing roles culminating in a Vice President of Sales role in New York. After returning to Australia in 2010 she came back to work temporarily at Hart’s Pharmacy to help whilst Marcia was taking some Maternity leave and is still here! Cassandra fills in where needed in any area of Hart’s Pharmacy and helps Ken with some of the behind the scenes work. In her spare time Cassandra has a keen interest in Interior Design and family and spends her days chasing after her very ‘spirited’ son, Sasha.
