First time buyer purchases St Peter's Pharmacy in the centre of Burnley

Christopher Lo, a first time buyer, has recently purchased St Peter’s Pharmacy located in the centre of Burnley, Lancashire with funding secured by specialist commercial finance broker, Christie Finance.

Christopher will embark on this new venture with the support of his family who own a large portfolio of pharmacies across Yorkshire. He graduated from University of Nottingham with a Master of Pharmacy degree in July 2016, qualifying as a pharmacist in August 2017.

Despite recently qualifying, Christopher has fully immersed himself into the pharmacy sector having gained previous work experience in hospital, community and integrated pharmacies. He is looking forward to meeting the current customers of the pharmacy and identifying ways in which he can grow the business.

David Ward, Senior Director of Medical Funding at Christie Finance, worked closely with Christopher to purchase his first business. David comments “St Peter’s Pharmacy is an excellent business with a great deal of potential. Christopher has an abundance of knowledge in the sector, coupled with a fresh perspective on how he can grow the business. I am sure Christopher along with the support of his family will make a great success of operating the pharmacy”.
