Independent pharmacy group buys one of Lloyds' 190 'unviable' branches

An independent pharmacy group has bought one of the Lloydspharmacy branches the multiple branded “commercially unviable”, C+D has learned.

According to a sign in the window (see below) of Lloydspharmacy on Hursley Road, Eastleigh, Hampshire, “from January, this pharmacy will no longer be operated by Lloydspharmacy”.

“Normal service will continue under new ownership,” the sign says.

The Eastleigh branch is one of the 190 “commercially unviable” branches in England that Lloydspharmacy's parent company Celesio UK has earmarked for closure or sale.

A pharmacy employee at the Eastleigh branch – who wished to remain anonymous – said it has been sold to independent pharmacy group Imaan Healthcare.

While C+D has confirmed the buyer's identity, the group said it could not comment at this time.

Imaan Healthcare currently owns “over 30 community pharmacies across the UK”, according to the group’s Facebook page.

Lloydspharmacy also told C+D it is unable to confirm details about individual deals.

Where else will Lloydspharmacy cease trading?

You can use C+D's map to view the location of each of the 24 Lloydspharmacy branches so far confirmed for closure or sale.

Branches confirmed for closure are marked in purple, while Lloydspharmacies up for sale are marked in blue. The branches that have been sold are marked in orange.

This map is live, and will be updated as C+D confirms the locations of further affected Lloydspharmacy branches.
