Boots has recently opened a new store on Dawson Street in Dublin city centre.
The pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer's new branch will be managed by Lauren Gorman and will have 18 staff, creating 10 new jobs within the 221m² store.
“Our new Dawson Street store starts a journey of reinventing Boots for the future in Ireland," said Bernadette Lavery, managing director of Boots Ireland.
The new store will stock a number of beauty brands such as Florence by Mills, Revolution, The Inkey List, BH cosmetics, Pixi, Lime crime and Milani, to name but a few.
In Pharmacy, services available in Boots Dawson Street include: winter flu and pneumococcal vaccinations, travel vaccinations, emergency contraception, compression hosiery, shingles vaccinations and Stop for Good – a 12-week, three-step programme to help people to quit smoking, which includes private and confidential support and advice.
"Mapped on our Store of the Future concept, we’re thrilled to share with our customers a selection of some of the most exciting new beauty brands on the market, offering them access to pharmacy services to help them live better and ultimately, feel good," Lavery added.
Health Promotion Initiatives
Health promotion initiatives offered in the Pharmacy at Boots Dawson Street also include: Alcohol Awareness, Asthma Let’s Breathe Easy, Blood Pressure Measurement, Diabetes Risk Assessment and Healthy Heart Support.
A private consultation room will also allow for one to one support and advice as required.
The store will feature brown paper bags which include a high recycled content and require less processing than white paper bags, improving Boots environmental footprint.
This is a continuation of Boots journey to reduce plastic use across the business, the retailer said.
The store will also feature a Rehydration Station for refilling water bottles on the go.
Boots Ireland now has 87 Boots stores across Ireland and just over 2,000 employees.
