Although the pharmacy only appeared in the last decade, it has been featured prominently in several storylines.

During Sharon Mitchell's painkiller addiction from 2012 to 2013, she visited the pharmacy regularly to take out prescriptions.

In 2014, Shabnam Kazemi applied for a job in the pharmacy and, due to her impressive CV and an experience in pharmaceuticals, she was offered the job. However, Shabnam began to have second thoughts about leaving Denise Fox running the Minute Mart alone, so, declined the job offer.

In late 2014, a petrified Linda Carter bought a pregnancy test after being raped by Dean Wicks. She discovered she was pregnant.

In January 2016 Shabnam successfully gets a job working at the pharmacy. It is also mentioned that the Pharmacy has a partner branch in Ealing.

Following the closure of Julie's, the premises were converted into a video store managed by Nigel Bates and Robbie Jackson. Other employees include Barry Evans, Gavin Sharp, Mickey Miller, and Chelsea Fox.

Natalie Evans also ran Romantic Relations from the store for a short period. When the shop was put up for sale it was bought by Phil Mitchell as an investment for Ben. Billy Mitchell tried to turn the premises into an internet cafe but was unsuccessful when the computers he bought were stolen.
