Boots confirms plans to close 200 stores
Boots has confirmed it will close 200 stores with the chain's boss saying it's "The right thing to do" in the current tough trading conditions. Local pharmacy stores - where there is another store near by - will be most affected by the closures, Boots said. The chain currently has 2,485 stores across the UK, employing about 56,000 staff. Most of the stores that are due to be closed are understood to be loss-making, with around two-thirds within walking distance of other Boots stores. "There's no doubt that trading conditions are tough on the High Street and healthcare and retail are facing a challenging reality. Boots is not immune to these pressures," said Boots managing director Sebastian James.
