Hangzhou-headquartered China Jo-Jo Drugstores Inc. has opened its first retail outlet in Shanghai.
The Shanghai store is approximately 3,000 square feet and operating under the name Lydia Drugstore. The store is located on Henan South Road in the city's Huangpu district.
The company reportedly plans for each Lydia Drugstore to have physicians on-site and intends to apply for medical licenses in Shanghai. The company anticipates opening at least 10 locations in Shanghai over the long-term to meet the local requirements for a chain drugstore.
