LloydsPharmacy opens first UK franchise store

LloydsPharmacy has opened its first ever UK franchise store in Gloucester.

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

LloydsPharmacy opens first UK franchise store

LloydsPharmacy has opened its first ever UK franchise store in Gloucester.

As well as adopting the LloydsPharmacy identity, the store has been refurbished in line with LloydsPharmacy owner Celesio’s European pharmacy network design.

Celesio has already transformed more than 300 pharmacies in its UK network and the Gloucester store is the first independent to join the programme as part of a franchise agreement.

Nigel Swift, marketing and sales director at Celesio UK, said: "The launch of the first LloydsPharmacy franchise store is a very exciting time for us. We have spoken to a lot of pharmacy entrepreneurs about what they’d like us to offer and created a compelling proposition, including complete end-to-end solutions, welcoming independent pharmacies into the LloydsPharmacy brand."

Swift said the new franchise will benefit from access to a number of LloydsPharmacy support services including HR provision, IT infrastructure, pharmacy and retail standard operating procedures, store design and category management.
