Lloyds Pharmacy located within the Sainsbury’s store in Arnold is to close, it has been announced.

The company is shutting all of its 237 in-store branches this year in response to changing market conditions which potentially puts more than 2,000 jobs at risk.

Individual branches will be put up for sale and the company said it was “working with colleagues potentially affected by the changes and has underlined its commitment to support them through the process”. It did not say how many roles could be affected.

The move comes just eight years after Lloyds Pharmacy bought the pharmacy network for £125 million and less than a year after the chain was bought by Aurelius.

Kevin Birch, chief executive of Lloyds Pharmacy, has said: “This decision has not been an easy one and we understand that our patients and customers may have questions about how the change will affect them

“We would like to thank them for their continued support and assure them that we are committed to providing a smooth transition over the coming months.”

The closure of Lloyds Pharmacy at Sainsbury’s means the nearest branch for Arnold residents will be on Mansfield Road in Sherwood.
