History of Murrays Pharmacy
The Murrays group was founded just after Cyril Murray (pictured right) – grandfather of today’s generation – returned from British Army service in the First World War. The year was 1920 and Cyril had himself been a pharmacist attached to an army train.
The very first pharmacy shop and headquarters were established in Tipton in the West Midlands. By the late 1950s, when Clive and his wife Truda joined the growing family business, three pharmacies were established and firm foundations for today’s business were set. The third generation Murrays, including Duncan the current Managing Director, joined the business in the late 80s.
Most recently Murrays joined the Peak Pharmacy Family. Peak Pharmacy was founded in 1981 and is based in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. It has grown via merger and acquisition from a single pharmacy into the business it is today with over 140 pharmacies and an online pharmacy. The most significant pharmacy chains who have joined Peak Pharmacy as part of that journey have been:
- Tims and Parker
- Manor Pharmacy
- Cox and Robinson
- and most recently Murray's
