LloydsPharmacy awarded top prize in ‘Retail Excellence’ in annual InBUSINESS Editors Choice Awards.

LloydsPharmacy, Ireland’s largest pharmacy chain, was today awarded for ‘Retail Excellence’, as part of the annual InBusiness Editors Choice Awards taking place in the Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin. Hosted by Today FM’s Anton Savage, the national awards, which recognise and reward exceptional achievement and innovation in Irish business, are now in their fourth year and cover a wide range of sectors.

On accepting the prize, Goretti Brady, Managing Director of LloydsPharmacy, said, “We are delighted to win this award. It is an endorsement that our company’s focus on patient care and customer service excellence is the right strategy. It certainly could not have been won without the commitment and dedication of our colleagues in our 94 stores around the country.

We plan to further expand in the next three years, bringing the LloydsPharmacy offering to new communities across Ireland. We also announced a further investment of €2 million in our patient services programme, continuing our commitment to providing value-added services to our customers.”

This award is a great end to what has been a busy year and we are looking forward to an exciting 2016 with further successes and expansion of our community-centred, patient-focused pharmacies.
