Yew Tree Pharmacy in Walsall, West Midlands

Yew Tree Pharmacy is a standard hours pharmacy that dispenses an average of 9,000 items per month. It is located in the Yew Tree Estate, a residential area of Walsall.

The business has been owned by Lynn O'Connor since 2009 and was brought to market as she was looking to retire.

Following a confidential sales process with Carl Steer at Christie & Co, and with funding sourced through David Ward at Christie Finance, the pharmacy has been purchased by first-time buyers, father and son duo, Ian and Jas Riaar.

Carl Steer, Director – Pharmacy at Christie & Co, comments, “Being tasked with finding a buyer off-market can sometimes be a challenge, but we know who to speak to and were soon in receipt of numerous offers. We knew the buyer well by this stage as they had been looking for a pharmacy for many years, so it was particularly pleasing to finally find them the perfect pharmacy. I felt very lucky to act for such a kind, warm, patient, and charming client in Lynn O’Connor and it was equally nice dealing with such a nice family in the Riaars.

“Despite the continued divestment of assets from large regional and national operators, the independent market remains resilient across the Midlands and is currently underserved with opportunities.”

Yew Tree Pharmacy was sold for an undisclosed price.
