Pharmacy (chemist's shop) is a specialized shop where medicines are sold. Pharmacy is usually situated on the ground floor.

At the chemists all medicines are kept in drug cabinets, on the open shelves and in the refrigerator. Poisonous drugs are kept in the drug cabinet with the letter A. Strong effective drugs are kept in the drug cabinet having the letter B.

Every small bottle or box has a label with the name of the medicine. There are labels of four colours for the drugs prepared at the chemist's: labels of a green colour indicate medicines for internal use; blue labels indicate drugs used for injections. Drugs for external application have labels of a yellow colour. Drugs used for treatment of eyes diseases have labels of a pink colour.
