Share post:

Blackthorn Pharmacy in Southampton, Hampshire has been sold to expanding operator, Rosechem Limited, which has multiple other pharmacies in Hampshire and Surrey for an undisclosed amount.

This health centre pharmacy dispenses an impressive average of 25,000 items per month. It has been owned by Patrick Stephens for over 25 years and was recently brought to market to allow him to retire.

Patrick Stephens, previous owner of Blackthorn Pharmacy, commented: “Over the years, with a lot of hard work and support of my pharmacy team, the business had grown significantly and, after 25 years, I was keen to retire and for someone to take over my business. I am sure the buyer will be successful and will continue to grow the business and build on the great relationships we have created. I would like to thank Jonathan at Christie & Co for all his hard work and am delighted that the sale has now completed.”

Das Bhambra, Co-owner of Rosechem Limited, said: “I’m delighted to have acquired this high-dispensing pharmacy – it is a business that ticks all the boxes for us. Patrick, Rachel, and the staff have been an integral part of the local community for many years, and I look forward to continuing their great work whilst making the business my own.”
