Business as usual at former LLoydspharmacy

Lloydspharmacy, on Charlotte Street, ceased trading on January 31 and reopened the next day under the Cohens Chemist name.

Manager, Ben Oliver, says Cohens had taken on all of the Lloydspharmacy staff at the branch, so it is “the same as before” for the team of eight.

Cohens, which owns the pharmacy within the Waters Green Medical Centre and operates more than 200 pharmacies across England and Wales – said it could not comment on the acquisition and plans for the pharmacy.

The Macclesfield branch is one of 190 “commercially unviable” Lloydspharmacy branches in England where parent company Celesio UK announced last year it would cease trading, through “closure or divestments”.
