SERVICES at a pharmacy in Pershore are set to resume on Thursday following a break-in on Sunday night. 

CM Ogle, based on the High Street, told customers on Monday that phone lines had been “disabled” and that standard orders outside prescriptions may be affected.

The business posted on Facebook: “Unfortunately we were broken into last night instore and will not be able to open this morning until police have completed what they need to do in store.

“Our phone lines were also disabled so we are unable to take calls for a few hours. You can contact us via email if it is an emergency prescription you need on: “If you have ordered shop items we will be in touch as we may need to reorder for you.

We thank you for your support for the staff in what is proving to be a very difficult year.”

CM Ogle declined to comment when approached by Evesham Journal but later posted that the shop would open at 9am on Thursday, November 26.
