Quotes

"We did nearly 400 start-ups last year. Our goal this year is more than 400.” Graul: You know it’s almost a push, but it’s a little bit of a plus. I go by National Community Pharmacists Association data, and what they have been saying is it looks like about 2,200 stores are in play every year. About 1,000 actually exit the market, but about 1,200 open up every year. We did nearly 400 start-ups last year. Our goal this year is more than 400.  When we launched the RxOwnership program, it was really aimed at ownership transfers. We’d get start-ups occasionally, but it wasn’t really a focus. But about three years ago, it just exploded to where the vast majority of people contacting us wanted to open a new pharmacy as opposed to buying one."
"Pharmacies are the No. 1 retail network attacking specialist beauty retailers and taking revenue away from them, particularly in skin care" Stephanie Poupineau, account manager at Kantar Worldpanel, was quoted as saying in the article
...We have therefore decided to pursue a demerger of RB Pharmaceuticals with a separate U K listing," stated Rakesh Kapoor, RB CEO. "We expect this to take place over the next 12 months. This will also allow RB to focus on its core strategy to be a global leader in consumer health and hygiene."
"We are very excited to be working with Encore, who have a proven track record in growing brands into category leaders while maintaining the integrity and identity of the brand. This partnership will allow us to continue to bring the highest quality products to our customers with speed, quality and care" stated Leslie Freytag, butter LONDON president and CEO
