The proposed expansion is in contrast with the company’s existing model of running its own stores

Ltd, India’s second largest pharmacy retailer, on Thursday said it plans to open 1,100 new stores in all districts of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh through the franchise route.The proposed expansion is in contrast with the company’s existing model of running its own stores.
