Boots is to expand its partnership with Deliveroo service to offer rapid delivery from additional stores later this year.
The company initially launched a trial partnership with Deliveroo in August 2021 at 14 pilot stores, including Edinburgh Princes Street, London Piccadilly and Nottingham Victoria Centre. It meant that customers could order from a range of 400 health and beauty products, including medicines and food and drinks options.
Since then the two companies have expanded the range on offer to 700 products, available for delivery in as little as 20 minutes from the 14 pilot stores.
Next day click and collect, meanwhile, is now available at more than 1,600 Boots stores.
The company is also working on sustainability and since December Boots.com has operated plastic-free deliveries.
The update came in the company’s latest results for the third quarter ended 31 May 2022 in which total sales grew by 13.5% and comparable retail sales grew 24%.
