WARWICK will have to wait another couple of weeks to visit the new Priceline Pharmacy at Rose City Shoppingworld.

The new store was due to open yesterday, but has been delayed for one or two weeks.

It was revealed via social media that due to "unforeseen circumstances” the grand opening would be pushed back, with a new date yet set as November 28 but it is yet to be confirmed.

The Daily News attempted to contact Owen Pharmacy Group regional manager Chris Owen but he has not been available for comment.

Mr Owen told the Daily News in October the new store would focus on health and beauty, with an in-house cosmetician and beauty staff to offer tutorials and make up services.

Priceline Pharmacy is due to open at Rose City Shoppingworld in Warwick next month and will be connected to a new medical centre.

"I do believe the Priceline Pharmacy will be very good in Warwick because of the national brand and it's very female focused,” he said.

"It will allow the women of Warwick to have that shopping experience that doesn't currently exist.”

A celebration has been planned for the grand opening of the pharmacy, with raffles and cakes.

John Duggan Chemist shut on October 26, with a view to reopening with the new Priceline Pharmacy brand.

All the John Duggan staff were expected to continue in their existing roles.

Mr Owen said at least four new positions would also be created at the new pharmacy.

An opening date for the new medical centre due to open behind Priceline Pharmacy is expected to be revealed this week.
