Boots to open new look ‘store of the future’ at Meadowhall
Boot is to open its first new look ‘store of the future’ outside of London at the Sheffield Meadowhall shopping centre.
The 27,986 square foot shop features brand new beauty and wellness halls as well as an Instagram point and two beauty studios. The beauty hall will showcase over 300 brands including the likes of Fenty Beauty, Urban Decay and Florence by Mills. In addition, Sheffield Meadowhall will be home to the retailer’s biggest wellness range outside of London.
Meanwhile, the pharmacy section of the store will give customers access to ‘fast lanes’ and secure lockers where they can collect their prescriptions. There will also be a number of consultation spaces and a “warmer and friendlier” waiting area.
Due to launch on 18 October, the store will offer a range of experiences on the launch day. These will include a a FitBit studio, hair colour consultations, and makeovers with Josh Wood. There will also be appearances from social media stars Sophie Hannah and Jake Jamie.
Sebastian James, managing director of Boots UK and ROI, said “Our new Sheffield Meadowhall store is a truly exciting moment for us – our first new look store outside of London, and in a city where Boots has had a presence for 135 years. As we transform our stores we will learn what people love and want from this shop and this will help us shape a blueprint for our whole 2,500 store estate.”
