Boots UK launches on Deliveroo
Boots has launched its first on-demand delivery service for customers ordering beauty products, toiletries, snacks and sandwiches, baby products and medicines for minor ailments.
Through an exclusive partnership with Deliveroo, the service has been launched as a pilot in 14 stores across the country and will offer customers delivery in as little as 20 minutes.
Boots’ customers will be able to access more than 400 products via the service including bestselling beauty brands No7, The Inkey List and CeraVe. The retailer’s own brand ranges such as Soltan and Staydry will also be included alongside bathroom cabinet essentials like plasters, vitamins and hand sanitiser.
Paula Bobbett, director of Boots.com at Boots UK, said: “We are very excited about this new partnership with Deliveroo and have carefully selected over 400 products for its launch to help our customers get the things they need, when they need them. 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 way to access our products quickly and easily.”
Boots has continued to see a rise in online sales during successive lockdowns with orders on Boots.com increasing by 85% between 1 March 2020 and 1 March 2021 compared to the same period in the prior year.
The retailer also offers a next day click and collect and home delivery for online orders.
The new Deliveroo service is now available in Boots’ stores in Birmingham, Brighton, Cambridge, Croydon. Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, Milton Keynes, Newcastle, Nottingham and Southampton as well as four stores in London.
Carlo Mocci, chief business officer UKI at Deliveroo, added: “We are delighted to announce a new partnership with Boots in 14 stores across the country. Boots is the UK’s leading health and beauty retailer and the top consumer choice for high-quality and popular products. 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.”
