Sigma announces major MoU with Pharmacy Alliance.
Sigma Pharmaceuticals has just announced a memorandum of understanding with the Pharmacy Alliance group which will see at least 30 new Amcal stores this year, with more in the pipeline.
Sigma said the “unique strategic relationship” will deliver significant benefits to both organisations, their members and consumers.
“This relationship further strengthens Sigma’s position as Australia’s largest pharmacy-led network,” said Sigma ceo Mark Hooper.
Initially 30 Pharmacy Alliance members will move into the Amcal brand, with Pharmacy Alliance md Simon Reynolds saying the arrangement “allows us to provide an additional, industry leading retail solution to our members who feel a retail brand will add value to their pharmacy.
“The retail solution allows Pharmacy Alliance to maintain our independence and continue to focus on our core business of servicing independent pharmacies around Australia,” Reynolds said.
He said the move would also deliver synergies and improvements for other partners such as suppliers.
