Jobs across the area are under threat after bosses at a leading pharmacy chain announced they are considering selling off the business.

The Co-operative Group - which has a wide range of interests, including retail, banking and funeral services - has announced a major shake-up of the business amid rumours it is facing record losses of £2bn.

The company, which started off in Lancashire, has 14 pharmacies in Wyre and Fylde which all face the prospect of being sold as part of the review of the business. Bosses announced plans this week to sell off the company’s farms and said they are “exploring options” for its pharmacies, which employ 6,500 people at around 750 stores nationwide.
