Health and beauty retailer Boots has expanded its partnership with Deliveroo, meaning that customers can now get products delivered to them from 125 stores across the UK.
Following a 14-store trial, customers in towns and cities, including Manchester, Glasgow, Belfast, Bristol, Sheffield, Coventry, Plymouth, Exeter, Middlesbrough, York, Aberdeen, and Inverness will now have access to 750 Boots-sold products via Deliveroo. More stores are also being added to the service in London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Leeds, and Edinburgh.
Products available on Deliveroo cover a range of categories, including beauty, over-the-counter medication, skincare, period and sexual wellbeing, baby, and food and drink.
“We’re so excited to be able to extend our partnership with Deliveroo and offer this service in more cities across the UK. The original trial in 14 stores was a huge success and gave us the opportunity to learn very quickly what our customers want from a rapid delivery service. Now, as we expand to 125 stores across the UK, we can be sure the products available on the service are well matched to customer needs,” said Paula Bobbett, Chief Digital Officer at Boots.
“Through Deliveroo, our customers can get cough, cold and flu relief products and mild pain relief delivered to their doors to help them with the symptoms of mild illnesses this winter, or baby wipes and nappies for those every-day childcare emergencies. Plus, if they’ve run out of their favourite skin care brand, or need a last-minute gift, they can get our great range of beauty and gifting products straight to them in minutes.”
Boots’ partnership with Deliveroo is part of its continued investment in digital in order to provide a ‘more convenient and personal’ shopping experience to customers.
“Deliveroo continues to bring greater choice and availability to people across the UK, with everything from suntan lotion to cold and flu symptom relief products, or fruit and veg from your local supermarket to a Friday night treat from your local restaurant. Boots is a fantastic partner for Deliveroo and hugely valued by our customers,” said Carlo Mocci, Chief Business Officer, UK&I at Deliveroo.
