Carey Olsen advises Superdrug as retailer launches in Jersey

Carey Olsen's property team has advised leading health and beauty retailer Superdrug on its set up and arrival in Jersey and the future opening of its first store in the island.

Led by partner Chris Philpott, the Carey Olsen property team advised Superdrug on the securing of the necessary business licences and its lease of more than 7,200 square feet of retail premises at 76-78 King Street in St Helier, the former premises of Mothercare.

Chris said: "We are delighted to have supported Superdrug on this important transaction. Superdrug is one of the most recognisable names on the UK high street and its arrival in Jersey with the opening of its first store on King Street is tremendous news for the local retail sector."

Superdrug has confirmed that the store is due to open on Thursday 15 August, creating 25 jobs.
