About our Business and Family

Landys Chemist was established in 1949 by Tony Landy and was since taken over by Girish Desai in 1983 and vastly expanded to enable us to serve the communities of Finchley, Hampstead Garden Suburb and surrounding areas with a greater range of products and services.

We offer a wide range of products and services, some of which include dispensing of NHS and private prescriptions, repeat dispensing, medicine usage reviews, collection and delivery services*, homeopathy (including an onsite homeopath), passport pictures, travel vaccinations, flu vaccines, ear piercing, smoking cessation and Lipotrim to name a few.

We stock a huge range of perfumery products including some of the world's leading brands for example Lancome, Clarins, Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Hermes and Viktor and Rolf. We also stock a wide range of some of the best skincare brands available on the market like Avene, Vichy, La Roche-Posay, Cerave and BioDerma. We don't ever compromise on quality and have a very careful review process before choosing to stock any items so you can be assured when shopping with Landys Chemist that you are getting great brands at great prices.

Customers have told us how critical their wellbeing is to them. This became particularly crucial around the COVID-19 pandemic and we have responded by significantly increasing the number of vitamin and mineral products that are available. Our favourite brands are Solgar, ViridianBioCare and Lamberts and we keep their entire range for customers. When shopping with us customers can be confident they're getting great brands from a licensed supplier at competitive prices. 

Above all, Landys is a family run business and as such brings a feeling of warmth and care to all its clients. We are dedicated to providing excellent customer service both in store and online and we pride ourselves on the exceptional quality of products we stock. We hope you enjoy shopping with us both in store and online and look forward to your custom.
