X5 Retail Group could purchase the A5 Pharmacy Chain in 2011 as part of a recent agreement, chief executive Lev Khasis has said. The price of the deal will depend on the chain’s results in 2010.

X5 Retail Group said in May 2009 that it planned to open A5 Pharmacy Chain outlets in all of its stores.

It had 77 A5 pharmacy outlets in Pyaterochka and Perekrestok food stores as well as in shopping malls in Moscow and the Moscow region at the time.
