Boots will close more stores in 2024

Boots has shut several shops this year after announcing plans to drop from around 2,200 to 1,900 branches.

It will continue closing stores in early 2024.

Shoppers should still be able to visit stores within three miles of where branches have closed.

A spokesperson said: "Evolving the store estate in this way allows Boots to concentrate its team members where they are needed and focus investment more acutely in individual stores with the ambition of consistently delivering an excellent and reliable service in a fresh and up-to-date environment."
