Hickey's Pharmacy to double in size

We are delighted to announce the opening of two new stores in Cork as part of an ambitious five-year growth plan through which we will double in size.

Our new Mayfield and Baker’s Road pharmacies will bring the total number of Hickey’s Pharmacies in Cork to five adding to our stores in Ballincollig, Gurranabraher and Ballyphehane.

Our family-owned company, founded by pharmacist Paddy Hickey in 1995, will now operate from 36 locations across Dublin, Cork, Kildare, Louth, Meath and Wexford.

We plan to add a further eight stores by the end of 2019, leaving us on track to hit our target of 60 by 2022.

Already employing over 350 staff, the expansion, including the two new Cork stores, will see that number rise to 475 by the end of next year through a combination of new pharmacy openings and acquisitions.

Commenting on the announcement, Paddy Hickey, Managing Director said ‘We are delighted to be adding to our already extensive network of stores and to expand our presence in Cork. Hickey’s has expert, dedicated and caring staff working at the heart of communities across Ireland alongside GPs and other healthcare professionals. As an Irish business we are proud to be able to help thousands of customers every day across our soon to be 36 pharmacies. We look forward to bringing Hickey’s unmatched service and support to many more communities in the months and years ahead as we continue our expansion”.
