Boots teams up with Deliveroo
By Richard Wright | 24th August 2021
Boots has announced its teaming up with Deliveroo in a pilot scheme to deliver cosmetics and medicines to the doorstep.
Customers at 14 trial stores will be able to access more than 400 products including food and drink, medicines for minor ailments and items from the bestselling No7 beauty range on-demand.
Paula Bobbett, Director of boots.com at Boots UK, said: "It will be super handy for times when you need something urgently but can't leave the house, like if you're feeling unwell or are looking after your kids.
"Our online business continues to grow and this partnership offers our customers a way to access our products quickly and easily."
Boots saw a rise in online sales during successive lockdowns. Orders were up 85% between 1 March 2020 and 1 March 2021 compared to the same period the previous year.
Boots offers next day Click & Collect and home delivery for online orders but this new partnership with Deliveroo allows it to provide even greater speed to customers that need items in as little as 20 minutes.
Carlo Mocci, Chief Business Officer UKI at Deliveroo, said: "This partnership will mean more choice and selection for our consumers, delivered in as little as 20 minutes, and will create more work for riders across the UK."
The service is available from Boots stores in Birmingham (High Street), Brighton (North Street), Cambridge (Petty Curry), Croydon (Whitgift Centre), Edinburgh (Princes Street), Leeds (Trinity), Liverpool, (Clayton Square), London (Brent Cross, Croydon Whitgift Centre, Liverpool Street Station and Piccadilly Circus), Milton Keynes (Crown Walk), Newcastle (Eldon Square), Nottingham (Victoria Centre) and Southampton (Above Bar Street).
The partnership could expand to more Boots stores in the future if the pilot stores are successful.
