LloydsPharmacy’s central London flagship, John Bell & Croyden, has reopened half of their store to reveal a new look, following its closure three months ago to undergo a £4 million refit project.

The store’s new updated image looks to “showcase John Bell & Croyden’s rich history” says Cormac Tobin, managing director, Celesio UK. Substantial changes have been made to the pharmacy, including the removal of low ceilings and the installation of period style lighting designed to keep with the original ornate cornices and columns.

Several new clinic rooms, when open, will be equipped to provide a range of procedures ranging from chiropody to hygienist and skincare treatments.

One innovative feature (pictured) is a British Jaguar XF car boot that has been installed in the independent living aids area, giving customers a means of testing out the portability of independent living products.

Mr Tobin has said that he is excited to see what the next few weeks hold as builders complete the project.
