Pharmacist trio takes over Walthamstow pharmacy as owner retires


Share post:

Three pharmacists have collectively acquired Leyton Green, a community pharmacy on the outskirts of London Borough, as its owner, Raj Baxi, opts to retire after 15 years of service.

The pharmacy, which processes an average of 2,697 items per month, was recently sold for an undisclosed sum, said Christie & Co, who facilitated the confidential transaction. The trio, led by Abdus Subhan, intends to drive the business forward by expanding the range of items and introducing advanced services.

“After nearly 15 years in Walthamstow, we will miss our loyal customers, but we are pleased for the pharmacy to go to experienced operators,” Baxi said.

Subhan expressed contentment in extending reach to Walthamstow and foresees enhancements in the clinical services at the pharmacy, now including the introduction of a complimentary prescription delivery service.
