Boots to launch first independently owned pharmacy in Sweden next month
Alliance Boots plans to open its first independently owned pharmacy in Stockholm, Sweden, next month (March 2011).
Healthcare services available will include blood pressure testing and medicines check-ups, Alliance Boots said.
Last summer, the company announced that it was planning a chain of independently owned pharmacies in Sweden following its partnership with Farmacevtföretagarna, a former arm of the Swedish Pharmaceutical Association.
The planned 100 stores will be marketed under the Boots brand, and be owned and run by what the two organisations are calling “entrepreneur” qualified pharmacists.
Terry Scicluna, divisional international managing director said: “This launch in Sweden represents an exciting step in our expansion of the Boots brand in Scandinavia. It is a clear illustration of how we are further developing the Boots brand internationally in order to achieve our aim of making Boots a truly global brand.”
