Phar­macy open­ing de­layed

Warwick Daily News - - NEWS -

WARWICK will have to wait an­other cou­ple of weeks to visit the new Price­line Phar­macy at Rose City Shop­ping­world.

The new store was due to open yes­ter­day, but has been de­layed for an ex­pected two weeks.

It was re­vealed via so­cial me­dia that due to “un­fore­seen cir­cum­stances” the grand open­ing would be pushed back, with a new date be­lieved to be set for Novem­ber 28, but it is yet to be con­firmed.

The Daily News at­tempted to con­tact Owen Phar­macy Group re­gional man­ager Chris Owen but he has not been avail­able for com­ment.

Mr Owen told the Daily News in Oc­to­ber the new store would fo­cus on health and beauty, with an in-house cos­meti­cian and beauty staff to of­fer tu­to­ri­als and make up ser­vices. “I do be­lieve the Price­line Phar­macy will be very good in Warwick be­cause of the na­tional brand and it’s very fe­male­fo­cused,” he said.

“It will al­low the women of Warwick to have that shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence that doesn’t cur­rently ex­ist.”

A cel­e­bra­tion has been planned for the grand open­ing of the phar­macy, with raf­fles and cakes.

John Dug­gan Chemist shut on Oc­to­ber 26, with a view to re­open­ing with the new Price­line Phar­macy brand.

All the John Dug­gan staff were ex­pected to con­tinue in their ex­ist­ing roles.

Mr Owen said at least four new po­si­tions would also be cre­ated at the new phar­macy.

An open­ing date for the new med­i­cal cen­tre due to open be­hind Price­line Phar­macy is ex­pected to be re­vealed this week.
