Boots and Superdrug are still open during England’s second lockdown because they are considered to be essential shops. Both retailers are doing everything they can to ensure their staff and customers are safe and have implemented new shopping rules to help shoppers pick up everything they need.

Boots has created quiet shopping slots for those who wish to pick up items when the store is quieter.

Over 31,000 shopping slots have been made available for those who cannot make it to store during the day, like key workers in the NHS and those who are teachers. 

Customers can book shopping slots online at 83 Boots stores nationwide.

Shoppers will then have a 45 minute slot in-store to pick up any items they need as well as speak to a member of the pharmacy for any advice. 

They will also have access to prescription collection as well as health and wellness products. 

The quiet shopping slots can be pre-booked on the Boots website and will be available throughout November and December in stores across the country. 

Tracy Clements, Chief Operating Officer at Boots UK, said: “We have created a safe space for our customers and key workers, who may still wish to do some of their shopping in person.

“Voted the safest retailer on the high street, the health and safety of our customers and colleagues is the most important thing to us, so we are offering this service to allow customers access to our stores when they are quieter or at times when they are available.

“As always, our colleagues will be on hand to help customers find what they need and make sure shopping in store is as safe, quick and pleasant as possible.”

Customers can visit to book a quiet shopping slot at selected Boots stores.

Those travelling to store need to follow guidelines put in place by the government and retailer and remember to wear a face covering and adhere to social distancing.

Boots is still operating its delivery service and has doubled its capacity for customers browsing online.

Shoppers can also continue to receive free home delivery on orders over £30.

All Superdrug stores are also remaining open with safety measures in place to keep customers and colleagues safe.

While beauty services will be closed, their pharmacies and clinics will also remain open to help supply customers with essential products and prescriptions.

Some of their pharmacies have reduced hours in certain locations so customers should check if their local store is opening before travelling to avoid disappointment. 

To help reduce the amount of customers in-store, Superdrug currently has a free Click & Collect service that customers can pick up in one of their stores within 30 minutes. 

Standard delivery is also free for Health & Beautycard members when they spend £10 or more and free for non-members when they spend £15 or more.

If customers wish to still visit a Superdrug store, they may experience a queue outside because the retailer said it is limited the number of customers in-store.

Shoppers are also reminded to stay two metres apart from other shoppers and all Superdrug colleagues will be wearing face covering while working on the shop floor.
