May 2005. Superdrug, the UK’s fastest growing beauty and health retailer, announced a £75 million expansion plan, promising 40 new stores for 2005 and 40% growth by 2009.

Not entirely by coincidence, this announcement was issued as a striking contrast to the financial results issued by its nearest high-street rival.

Blanket national and regional broadcast coverage was achieved including Radio 5 Live, BBC Business Breakfast, BBC 1 O’Clock and 6 O’Clock News.
