The latest store to rebrand is located at the Grove Island retail complex in Corbally.

“We are re-branding under the DocMorris name however we are still keeping the same six staff. We have been in the Grove Island complex for the last nine years and we are very excited about our relaunch as part of the DocMorris pharmacy group,” said Mary Irwin manager of the pharmcy, which was relaunched by the Mayor of Limerick, Cllr Gerry McLoughlin.

The pharmacy presented two cheques of €250 each to Limerick Animal Welfare and the Simon Community to mark the re-launch.

Fundraising co-ordinator for the Simon Community Susan Ward said they were thrilled to be chosen to receive a cheque for €250. “We are dependant on the support of businesses in the community to help us provide services to people who are homeless in the Limerick area,” she said.

DocMorris is Ireland’s largest pharmacy group with over 70 pharmacy outlets throughout the country.

In recent months, it has launched re-branded pharmacys in the Parkway, Jetland and Roxboro shopping centres at at William Street and Thomondgate.
