Since Cincotta Discount Chemist opened their doors at Indro two years ago, Sherwinna has watched as the business continues to attract new faces from the community, as well as fostering the existing community that she and the team have built with their customers. Now the store Manager, Sherwinna loves the vibe at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, and gives a special shoutout to the greenery that has been introduced around the centre for creating a warm atmosphere.


When she’s not mountain biking, you’ll find Sherwinna playing board games and enjoying quality time with her three children. If she manages to find some free time, she loves building Lego cities, and is currently working on a Bakery! We asked Sherwinna what she loves most about her job, and the response was an easy one “Our team has a great relationship with customers. We know about people’s pets, families, and even their gardens! We also have some great music playing in store that makes working here even more enjoyable!”

Customers may not know that Cincotta Discount Chemist offers compounding, meaning the team can mix up any medication you’re needing, whether that be tablet or liquid. Cincotta is home to a broad range of products from small and local brands, including products with biodegradable packaging and natural alternatives. Sherwinna notes that she has seen a significant increase in community interest around these types of products and is proud to offer such a wide range of options for customers.

Sherwinna introduced us to a product called Viridis which is a great example of a locally made alternative to traditional sanitiser. The product is an anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral sanitiser that is 99.999% effective and biodegradable; customers are loving it!


We were also excited to learn about Cincotta’s baby nurse Liz, who offers free-of-charge advise for new parents and their bubs. She has a wealth of experience and knowledge, whether it’s a sleep-issue, or just a product recommendation! We met Liz and were not surprised that kids have warmed to her – she really is a baby whisperer! You’ll find Liz at Cincotta from 9am – 12:30pm on Tuesdays, and walk-ins are welcome!


It was a pleasure to get to know the Cincotta Discount Chemist team, who are all passionate about providing a tailored approach to care for each member of the community that they meet.
