Watsons Personal Care Stores made its foray into the Singapore market in April 1988 with the opening of a 4,000 square feet store at Marina Square. The brand has since expanded rapidly through the years. In 2003, Watsons introduced pharmacy services to its customers with the opening of its first pharmacy counter at Ngee Ann City.
To date, Watsons has 21 pharmacy counters located within its key stores, and is still continuing in its expansion into pharmacy services. In recent years, the Watsons brand has reinvented itself in line with the proposition to help customers have fun “Look Good, Feel Great. Have Fun!”.
Watsons has introduced a new, bright and contemporary feel to its stores, and is also providing unique programs of personalized advice and counseling in beauty and health care. The brand’s successful strategies have resulted in significant market penetration, and Watson’s Singapore now has 101 stores with the latest store additions at ION Orchard and Ang Mo Kio Hub.
