The business is situated in a busy retail parade, opposite a doctor’s surgery and less than half a mile from where Shivali and Ronak Patel currently live. They see this as a fantastic opportunity to acquire a business in an area they have excellent local knowledge of.
Shivali has over five years post qualification experience as a pharmacist and currently works at a local pharmacy, whilst Ronak is an accountant. Their blend of professional expertise ensures the Patels are the perfect fit as new owners of Avenue pharmacy.
Shivali and Ronak are enthusiastic about the opportunity to modernise the pharmacy’s offering to service the demands of the local area and have plans in place to reconfigure the internal layout of the retail area with the addition of a consultation room to the rear of the pharmacy.
John Mitchell, Head of Business Mortgages at Christie Finance, worked with Shivali and Ronak throughout the process. He comments: “It’s always rewarding to help first time buyers, like Mr and Mrs Patel, in realising their dream of acquiring their own business. Avenue Pharmacy is an established business with plenty of scope and opportunity for a first time buyer. I am sure they will be a huge success at Avenue Pharmacy.”
