Boots UK opened its brand new store at The Springs; a new retail and leisure development at Thorpe Park Leeds to meet the health and beauty needs of the local community, providing customers with a wide range of pharmacy services, new brands and health and beauty products.
Ghada Beal, Director of Stores - North, supported the opening alongside new Store Manager, Sam Cale-Brister. Long-serving Boots colleague Janet Hepworth-Hans, who has worked at the company for more than 50 years, was invited to cut the ribbon to officially open the store, and local singers Liz and Regi were invited to perform. Liz was an Assistant Store Manager at Boots for six years and now runs a choir that sings for St Gemma’s Hospice.

We know that our customers in East Leeds are really looking forward to being able to shop from all of their favourite brands at Boots, and we can’t wait to welcome them into the beautiful new unit.
“We’re also thrilled to have 15 new Boots colleagues joining the team, including a brand new Premium Beauty team of eight, who will be on hand to help our customers with all of their health and beauty needs.”
