Experienced operators purchase second pharmacy in Stoke-on-Trent

Business partners Aftab Akhtar and Ajaiz Khan have successfully purchased a Lloyds pharmacy located in Stoke-on-Trent with the help of funding secured by specialist medical finance broker, Christie Finance.

The pharmacy is located on the Strand in Longton which is within walking distance of Waterloo Pharmacy, Aftab and Ajaiz’s current business. The additional purchase will provide them with increased buying power to expand on their existing services.

Both directors graduated from Bradford University in 2003, with Aftab opening his first pharmacy contract in 2007. Ajaiz has worked with his business partner at Waterloo Pharmacy since it first opened whilst also working as a locum across the North of England.

Aftab and Ajaiz express their gratitude towards David Ward, Senior Medical Director at Christie Finance “We just want to say thank you to David for all of his support throughout this exciting venture. It would not have been possible without him”.

David comments “I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Aftab and Ajaiz in buying their second pharmacy. Both are highly skilled and well known in the local area, I have no doubt they will make a success of their new project and I wish them the very best for the future”.
