500 jobs have been announced with the Lloyds Pharmacy chain as it adds up to 60 new branches in Ireland over the next 3 years.
The expansion plan is to be rolled out over a three-year period and will increase the total workforce at Lloyds to 1,500, growing its current 91 stores to about 150.
The Lloyds pharmacy chain is currently the largest in Ireland. It has also decided to invest more than €2 million in a new patient services programme throughout existing outlets.
The company had flagged its expansion ambitions in January, following strong sales performance over the Christmas period. The chain added 14 outlets during last year, describing the year as “very positive” for sales and said it intended to build on its progress by introducing new products. Services already offered include blood pressure testing, express prescription services, food intolerance testing, diabetes support and asthma control. Management at the pharmacy has signalled its intent to expand into new communities, consolidating its dominant market position.
Lloyds has already set about identifying new sites.
