Difference between a `medical shop’ and a `chemist’

In both shops, you can buy medicine manufactured by well-known pharmaceutical companies. At the chemist’s however, it is possible for you to have your medicine prepared. The shop usually has someone who is well trained or qualified to prepare whatever it is you need.
