Five new colleagues have joined the team at the new store located in the redevelopment of Cardiff’s Central Square. The extensive regeneration of the area in addition to works on the electrification of the rail network is creating a real buzz around the business hub that is forecasted to generate a huge economic boost in Cardiff over the next decade.

The store will also offer confidential consultation rooms where patients can access additional pharmacy services, including flu vaccinations and malaria prevention travel health services.

Alongside the healthcare offering, customers will be able to find all of their favourite beauty brands, including No7, Soap and Glory and luxury bathing from Champneys. Busy commuting customers will also be able to take advantage of the next day Boots Order and Collect Service* which will give them quick and easy access to the entire range on The new store also offers an extensive food and drink range available as part of the Boots Meal Deal.
