China Jo-Jo Drugstores Enters Shanghai Market

China Jo-Jo Drugstores, Inc. (NASDAQ:CJJD) ("Jo-Jo Drugstores" or the "Company"), which operates retail pharmacies in the People’s Republic of China, today announced the opening of a new store in Shanghai, marking the Company’s entry into one of the wealthiest cities in Southeast China. The Company plans to open additional locations in Shanghai over the long-term.

Mr. Lei Liu, Chairman and CEO of Jo-Jo Drugstores, stated, “We are excited about the opportunity to develop a presence in the Tier I city of Shanghai, which is recognized as an international gateway to China. With Shanghai’s population approaching 20 million and per capita spending among the highest in China, the demographics are compelling. While operating costs are greater in Tier I cities, this will be offset by higher price points, which will allow us to maintain our strong gross profit and operating margin levels. We are confident that our proven operating model, including China Jo-Jo’s unique pharmacy-physician service offerings, will enable us to profitably capture market share.”

The Shanghai store is approximately 3,000 square feet and operating under the name Lydia Drugstore. The store is located at No.64-66, Shangwen Road, Henan South Road, Huangpu District, Shanghai. The City of Hangzhou, where the Company is headquartered and operates most of its other stores, is located 113 miles south of Shanghai.

The Company plans for each Lydia Drugstore to have physicians on-site and intends to apply for medical licenses in Shanghai. The Company anticipates opening at least 10 locations in Shanghai over the long-term to meet the local requirements for a chain drugstore.
