Following on from its recent acquisition of Healthways pharmacy in Hartlepool, independent operator Pharmacy Express has acquired Burrell’s Pharmacy in Eaglescliffe.
The deal was completed with the help of Mincoffs Solicitors’ and Christie & Co’s specialist pharmacy teams.
Asif Alrahi, director of Pharmacy Express, said: “The latest addition to our portfolio of community pharmacies will help us to continue to provide high quality service and work with local businesses to try and positively influence the health and wellbeing of our community.
“Mincoffs and Christie & Co were integral to achieving a successful outcome for the latest acquisition and securing the best deal for Pharmacy Express to continue our expansion.”
This latest acquisition adds to Pharmacy Express’ growing portfolio of independent pharmacies in the region, currently covering Middlesbrough, Thornaby, Kelloe, Eaglescliffe and Hartlepool with continued expansion targeted for the near future.
Chris Hughes, associate solicitor at Mincoffs Solicitors who led advice to Pharmacy Express on the acquisition, concluded: “Pharmacy Express prides itself on running local, independent pharmacies in the heart of communities and we are delighted to be working closely with the business in delivering its expansion plans.
“We wish Asif, Mana and the team the best of luck for their continuing endeavours and look forward to seeing the business’ evolution over the coming years.”
