Boots to close 60 branches next week and redeploy pharmacists to busier shops – The Sun

BOOTS has revealed plans to temporarily close 60 stores that have taken a hit due to coronavirus.

The pharmacy chain says it's taken the decision due to lack of footfall in airports and retail parks, according to The Mirror.

A spokesperson for Boots told The Mirror: "We need to make sure that we have enough colleagues playing their vital role where it’s currently most needed and that we can send home those colleagues who are working in stores that are not busy.

"To achieve this, we are temporarily closing a small number of stores that are very quiet at this time."

The Sun has contacted Boots to confirm.
