Property advisor completes healthy hat-trick in Leicester

Lads Chemist

Christie & Co has completed the sale of three standard hours community pharmacies in Leicester for undisclosed sums.

Sonichem Pharmacy in Braunstone Town, Lads Chemist in Evington and Health Serve Pharmacy in Highfields were all sold for more than their guide prices.

Carl Steer, director – medical at Christie & Co, said: “These completions follow a raft of sales we’ve worked on in the county over the last three years, including Shilchem, Wymeswold Pharmacy, Paul Disney Chemist, Spiers Chemist, Oakwood Pharmacy and Rothley Pharmacy. These six completions, along with the recent sales of Sonichem Pharmacy, Lads Chemist, and Health Serve Pharmacy show, without doubt, the robust appetite for Leicestershire pharmacies. With a few exceptions, these sales attracted swift interest, multiple viewings and offers at their full asking price or above.

“The pandemic saw a slow-down in an appetite to sell, for obvious reasons, but with the burgeoning of our applicant database, and a good appetite from banks to fund the pharmacy sector, we have a perfect blend for anyone considering a sale. Leicestershire, especially, is achieving some of the best levels of interest and offers seen across the whole of the Midlands region.”
