About Merz Apothecary

Established in Chicago in 1875, Merz Apothecary is a pharmacy dedicated to offering the world’s best selection of unique and natural products for health, beauty and personal care along with knowledgeable and caring service. After three generations of ownership by the Merz family, the store was purchased by the Qaiyum family in 1972. Ten years later, Abdul Qaiyum moved Merz to its current flagship location in Lincoln Square where it has become a cornerstone of the community. In 1998, Smallflower was launched as Merz’s ecommerce and catalog brand, to serve its rapidly growing national customer base. Merz Downtown, the company’s second store, was opened in 2003 in Chicago’s Loop, currently located at the main entrance of the historic Palmer House Hotel. In late 2014, Merz debuted Q Brothers, the men’s shop at Merz Apothecary, adjoining the flagship store in Lincoln Square, quickly becoming the country’s premier destination for traditional wet shaving, men’s grooming, and independent fine fragrance. With more than 14,000 products and over 140 years of experience, Merz Apothecary is a veritable Chicago landmark and must-shop destination for locals and travelers alike.
