Burnham-On-Sea chemist to get new name and look in September

A chemist in the centre of Burnham-On-Sea is set to get a new name and look next month.

The Co-operative Pharmacy branch at 18 Victoria Street is to be re-launched following a change of ownership – and will re-brand with the new name, ‘Well’.

The chain's pharmacies in Somerset will begin adopting the new 'Well' branding over the next few weeks – and the company is asking local people to nominate local unsung heroes who will be invited as VIP guest of honour to the official opening.

The changes apply to seven pharmacies across in Somerset at Burnham-On-Sea, Martock, Yeovil, Taunton, Crewkerne, and Weston-Super-Mare.

Mark Nuttall, regional manager for Well, told "We are extremely excited to unveil the new look pharmacies and our branch colleagues are looking forward to providing personalised health and wellbeing services as they continue to serve the community in Somerset. We recognise that many of our customers are tireless in their efforts to support the community, which is why we want to celebrate their work and invite an unsung hero to our grand opening."

To celebrate the arrival of the new brand in Somerset, the business is searching for local people who have done something exceptional or are an unsung hero for their work locally. This could include anything from saving someone’s life to a contribution to charity or voluntary work that has had a positive impact in the local area. Locals can suggest a nomination by either by emailing or by post, to Well Heroes, c/o Havas PR, 52 Princess Street, Manchester M1 6JX. The closing date for nominations is 20th September.

In total, 780 pharmacies in the UK will change from The Co-operative Pharmacy and become Well, following Bestway Group's £620million acquisition of the high-street pharmacy business from The Co-operative Group, last year.
