Share post:

Stone Pharmacy in Barnsley, South Yorkshire has been sold to existing operator, Livesey Healthcare, which owns another pharmacy in East Lancashire for an undisclosed price.

Stone Pharmacy is a well-established, 100-hour community pharmacy that is run under full management with a locum Pharmacist, and dispenses an average of 22,000 items per month. The business adjoins Garland House surgery in the South Yorkshire village of Darfield, which is circa six miles east of Barnsley and circa 14 miles north of Sheffield.

The pharmacy has been owned by experienced operators, Khuram Akhtar and Mohammed Ali, trading as MEDS2U Ltd, for the last seven years, and was recently brought to market to allow the pair to pursue new ventures both in and out of community pharmacy.

Khuram Akhtar, former owner of Stone Pharmacy, commented: “The business at Stone Pharmacy has been a fantastic enterprise for many years for us, with limited competition and a position central to the local community we have always enjoyed the support of the nearby population and are pleased that it is now in the hands of experienced operators who can build on that foundation with the expansion of new services.

We wish the new owners and the pharmacy team the greatest of success. My business partner and I now look forward to concentrating on other ventures both inside and out of community pharmacy.”

Mohammed Balal, Director at Livesey Healthcare, said: “We are looking forward to this new challenge and to serving the community of Darfield. Stone Pharmacy offers me and my fellow Directors a solid platform to grow the business further thanks to the hard work of the previous owners.”
