Superdrug to open 25 new stores this year

Health and beauty retailer Superdrug is to open 25 new stores in 2024 as it celebrates its 60th year on the UK high street.

The expansion of the store estate is expected to create over 500 jobs nationwide.

The move means that Superdrug will be launching some of its biggest ever stores throughout the year. This will include three best-in-class shops opening soon at St David’s in Cardiff, Bluewater Shopping Centre and Westfield Stratford City.

The retailer will also be extending seven stores and refitting 60 this year. The updates will include new shop fronts, fully recyclable signage, improved flooring and ceiling tiles made from bio-soluble mineral wool, clay and starch, as well as the introduction of energy efficient LED lighting, new floor layouts and upgraded fascias and internal signage.

Superdrug’s property director Nigel Duxbury said: “We’ve changed a lot in the 60 years since the first Superdrug store opened in Putney high-street, but we remain as committed as ever to providing a seamless shopping experience for our customers, offering the very best in accessible health and beauty.

“This investment into bricks-and-mortar means we can grow our footprint in key locations and highlights our ongoing commitment to high streets and retail shopping destinations, which are an integral part of local communities and economy.

“2024 will see some of the largest ever Superdrug stores open their doors, which is something we are really excited about, as these larger retail units give us the space to be able to offer new and exciting services and even more of the latest health and beauty products.”
