High street chain Boots has announced an expansion to its partnership with Deliveroo which will now cover over 120 stores - including six in Greater Manchester.
The expansion follows a successful trial of 14 Boots stores, and will now see the delivery partnership available across the UK.
Manchester was not available in the trial, meaning that for the first time ever Boots items can be delivered to homes in the city by Deliveroo.
Paula Bobbett, Chief Digital Officer at Boots said: “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.”
Paula added: “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.”
Carlo Mocci, Chief Business Officer, UK&I, Deliveroo, said: “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.”
