COVID-19: An important message on our beauty colleagues

23 March 2020
Feature Healthcare

Our focus at this time is on supplying communities with the healthcare, pharmacy and essential items that they need.

That’s why from tomorrow, Boots UK Beauty colleagues, including those who work for No7, Liz Earle, Benefit, Fenty and fragrance counters will not be required to go to work in Boots stores. However, we are asking them to consider staying in store and switching roles to assist with our healthcare efforts as we continue to work tirelessly to support those who need us. This is of course their choice.

Seb James, Managing Director of Boots UK, said today: “Boots has a unique role to play during this time, and our duty and focus is to ensure that pharmacy, healthcare and a wide range of the essential products that we sell are available to those who need them. Every day I am hearing and seeing heroic stories of the way in which our colleagues and stores are responding, helping, advising and reassuring people in every corner of the UK. I know that Boots colleagues are doing everything they can to support this effort. It makes me hugely proud and I want to thank the teams for their outstanding dedication in keeping our stores and pharmacies open. Boots continues to be a place of trust for those who need us.”
