Our Pharmacy Industry Stats

The GB Pharmacy Industry is largely resilient, with major outlets such as Boots and Superdrug having been resident on the high-street for many years, and alternative health retailer Holland and Barrett going strong. Lloyd's Pharmacy however has recently experienced tougher trading conditions - leading to the closure of 78 branches in 2018, noteably in London, the West and West Midlands.
