The new-look store features an extensive beauty hall that is now home to exciting new premium beauty brands, such as Estée Lauder, Benefit, Fenty Beauty, The Ordinary and Ole Henriksen, a reinvented healthcare space with a new open plan pharmacy area, and a brand-new purpose-built Boots Hearingcare room. There are also new self-checkouts for customers. 

The pharmacy has been extended and moved to the back of the store to create a dedicated healthcare area. Two consultation rooms have been added, allowing the store to function as a Services Centre, offering services such as the Boots Chickenpox Vaccination Service*, the Boots HPV Vaccination Service* and Boots Travel Vaccinations & Advice Service*, as well as the NHS Blood Pressure Check Service.**

Solihull is one of the first Boots stores in the UK to feature this new open healthcare space, designed to make it easier for customers to access healthcare advice and discover appropriate products to support their health.

Nik Young, Store Manager at Boots Solihull said: “We are delighted to officially unveil our newest refurbished store to our local Solihull community. The store has lots of exciting beauty brands, expert healthcare advice and services available. We are really excited to welcome the people of Solihull to experience the very best that this store has to offer. I’d also like to say a huge thank you to my store team who have been amazing throughout the revamp process.”
