The new Boots Penhale store offers a range of new beauty brands and health services.

The new Boots store in Penhale Kingsley Village Shopping Park has opened today (26 June 2019). The new look store is on one floor to offer easier accessibility, and will offer a number of new and well-known beauty brands including Max Factor, Beauty Finds, L'Oréal, Sleek MakeUP, Rimmel, Revlon, CYO, Bourjois, Soap and Glory, Maybelline, Barry M, Collection, Makeup Obsession and SensatioNail™.

The store will also be providing a wide choice of health and pharmacy services. This includes travel and Meningitis B vaccinations, winter flu jabs, Cervical Cancer screening and Emergency Hormonal Contraception, as well as a hair retention clinic.

For the convenience of customers, the store will be offering extended opening hours and a Click & Collect service. Two self-service photo kiosks and the Boots Mini-Club clothing range will also be available in-store.

Boots Penhale is located in Penhale Kingsley Village Shopping Park, just off the A30, which is a major road link in and out of Cornwall.

The new store was opened by Jayne Penfold, one of the long-serving customer advisors from Truro with more than 45 years of experience working with Boots. She cut the ribbon and officially declared the store open. Visitors on the day were able to take part in a luxury hamper raffle with all proceeds going to the Cornwall Air Ambulance, which the store has chosen to support as its local charity.

Alexa Dodds, Store Manager, Boots Penhale, said: “We are very excited to welcome customers into our new Penhale store, which will offer a great selection of beauty products and fragrance, while also looking after the health and wellbeing of local communities by providing a huge range of health services.

“The new store has created seven new permanent jobs and will open up seasonal vacancies, so not only are we looking after the health of the local community, we are also having a positive impact on the local economy.”

Jenni Jasper, Area Manager, Boots UK, said: “Boots has been in Cornwall for over 90 years and this new store brings to life one of several exciting plans to develop stores that meet the changing needs of customers today. We’re really looking forward to seeing our customers enjoy this new offering, and all the great beauty brands we are introducing.”
