Rosneft has launched Apteka Avto, pharmacies along roads, at gas stations, where customers now can buy over-the-counter medicines and non-medicinal drugs, Vedomosti reports.
At the moment, the service is operating in pilot mode at two gas stations in St. Petersburg, and in the near future it will be available at two more gas stations in the Leningrad Region.
“The opening of the new network of road pharmacies not only expands the list of goods and services provided by Rosneft gas stations, but also improves public health, which is especially important in the current epidemiological situation,” Avril Conroy, Rosneft’s Vice President for Retail Business, told the publication.
The project is implemented jointly with Aloe, a federal pharmacy chain with more than 300 pharmacies. For this purpose, the sales areas of the gas station were reconstructed to comply with the requirements for equipment and storage conditions required for the sale of medicines.
