Christie Finance supports South East London independent pharmacy acquisition

Commercial finance specialist, Christie Finance, has supported Mr Anish and Mrs Raxa Dholakia with the purchase of independent pharmacy, Station Road Pharmacy, in South East London.

Station Road Pharmacy is located in the South East London town of Crayford and performs a vital role within its local community. The well-presented, standard hours pharmacy comprises a retail area and consultation room. It dispenses over 11,300 items per month – 89 per cent of which is dispensed through EPS – and operates on a very strong NHS income.

Mr Dholakia brings a vast amount of experience within the pharmacy sector having worked for corporate and independent companies. He will be hands on with the business and has identified various avenues for business growth.

Gary Boyce, Director at Christie Finance, arranged the funding and comments, “We are delighted to have helped Anish and Raxa in purchasing Station Road Pharmacy. They were eager to ensure there would be no hiccups during the transaction and, with our assistance, were able to overcome any challenges along the way. Anish has a solid business to take forward and a capable lender to support his future needs. We wish them our very best and await the call on his next acquisition.”
