New Boots store now open in Lincoln

Boots opened its new, larger store on Lincoln High Street, just across the road from its old premises, creating 15 new jobs.

The new look store is on one floor only, and offers a number of new beauty brands including Chanel, IT Cosmetics, Liz Earle, Stila, This Works and Tom Ford.

The Lincoln Boots store is the first of 24 of the company’s stores to remove traditional beauty counters and replace them with ‘trending zones’, ‘discovery areas’, and live demonstration areas.

Customers will also find an NHS pharmacy, healthcare services, an optician and a hearing care centre.

The new store was opened by seven colleagues, each with at least 30 years’ service, with combined service of over 250 years in Boots.
