Retail bonanza

The Chemplus banner is set to expand after a strong performance was reported by its parent the Terry White Group.

Recently released results show the Terry White Chemists network was up 18% for retail sales in the first half of the financial year (to 31 December 2015).

Group CEO Anthony White said the group was consistently achieving above market, like-for-like retail sales growth across its pharmacies.

The vitamin, health and beauty categories were especially strong performers, he said. Total vitamin sales nearly doubled over the preceding period, he said.
