A ST JOHN’s pharmacy owned by a Worcester family for more than 30 years has been sold to Lincolnshire businessmen.
DL Ogle Pharmacy has been owned by David Ogle and his family for more than three decades.
The pharmacy dispenses an average of 12,000 items per month. It was put up for sale last year to enable family members to either retire or pursue different business interests.
It has been sold for an undisclosed sum by brothers Ali and Mohammed Talib, Tapiwa Masamha and Chikondi Mlia.
The four also own Gohil’s Pharmacy and Whistlers Pharmacy in Lincolnshire.
The sale was overseen by Christie and Co and director Carl Steer who said:
“The sale was confidentially marketed but, within just a few days, interest was achieved from multiple parties.
“We were able to present our client with an acceptable offer – one that the long-standing business deserved.
“The buyers own two sizeable pharmacies in the East Midlands and now add this well-performing profitable pharmacy to their portfolio.
“It was a pleasure to deal with everyone on the deal.”
