SHOPPERS are rushing to buy iconic designer perfumes worth £50 for £10 as a pharmacy chain looks to close branches.
Beauty fans have spotted a range of tempting offers on fragrances on the Lloyds Pharmacy website.
It comes after sources told The Sun that the pharmacy's private equity owner had launched a strategic review of its entire UK store base.
The process could lead to a sale of all of its 1,300 pharmacies or closure, they said.
Lloyds Pharmacy has already announced the closure of 237 of its pharmacies in Sainsbury’s supermarkets by the end of the year.
While shoppers spotted a huge closing down discounts inside the chain's pharmacies, there is no suggestion the online perfume discounts are part of this sale.

Some perfumes are being sold with up to £70 off, and one savvy shopper found a 150ml bottle of Calvin Klein eau de toilette on sale £10 reduced from £80.
Writing to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, she said: "Lots of fragrances on sale online at Lloyds pharmacy! ckin2u him in 100ml or 150ml for £10!"
Bargain hunters were quick to comment, with one person writing: "Just ordered some great bargains!"
While another added: "Nabbed myself some great buys earlier! Well chuffed!"

And a third said: "Who doesn't love a perfume bargain??"
This was the cheapest price for a 150ml that The Sun could find when we checked online.
While these prices may be tempting, remember to keep in mind that just because it's a bargain, it doesn't mean you should buy it. Only get something if you need it.
Otherwise you're not saving any money.
Among the other perfumes in the sale include ELLE Free Spirit, reduced from £48 to £10 and Michael Buble Love Note is down to £10 from £55.

Elsewhere, Paperchase was another chain which shut shop earlier this year.
Despite being bought by Tesco, the company will suffer 106 store closures and potentially 1,000 job losses.
It currently has a closing down sale going, with items selling for up to 50% off.
Plus M&Co fans have spotted closing-down offers on sale online and in stores.
The high street fashion chain plunged into administration last year for the second time since 2020.
