Located at 108 and 110 Tory Street,[1] Dick Lee & Co was a Traditional Chinese Herbalist.

In the early 1900s, Dick Lee and nephew Chung Ying were well known Chinese Traditional Herbalists. The store was central to the Chinese community at the time, becoming an ad-hoc support centre, where the respected Kum Yue would provide assistance to Chinese migrants. The Wellington Museum currently (2017) has a display with information on Dick Lee & Co.

Volume 1 Issue 1 of the Man Sing Times contains a small advertisement for "Dick Lee, General Merchant, 108 Tory Street, Wellington N.Z"[2]
