Loughborough pharmacy and post office under new ownership

Property business advisors Christie & Co have announced the sale of Saraj Pharmacy & Post Office in Loughborough.

Saraj Pharmacy & Post Office is a community pharmacy and dispenses an average of 7,300 items per month. Additionally, it includes a Post Office business with three counters.

Owned by Saraj Patel and his family for over 40 years, the decision to sell was made to facilitate their retirement.

After a confidential sales process led by Carl Steer at Christie & Co, the pharmacy and post office were acquired by Rahul and Anup Patel for an undisclosed price.

The new owners, who already own 14 pharmacies across the East Midlands, are poised to continue the legacy of Saraj Pharmacy & Post Office.

Carl Steer, director at Christie & Co, said: ‘’The sale is, in many ways, a perfect example of the Leicester market in that, despite the challenges generally being seen across the sector, buyers are as keen as ever to secure profitable pharmacies across the county. A lack of pharmacies for sale and a growing number of buyers looks to ensure this picture is maintained for the foreseeable future.”
