In My View – Sandy Longley

| May 2022

With the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee only a week away, I am delighted to share with you a few ways that the city and our store will be celebrating to mark this special occasion.

Many of you would have already noticed the fantastic Jubilee flags and creative shop window displays across the city. Over the course of the weekend there will be many events taking place including a Jubilee Picnic on the Cathedral Green on Friday 3 June and a Gala and Family Fun Day in Priory Park on Saturday 4 June. There is also a Jubilee themed family trail running on the LoyalFree App until the end of the month.

Here at Boots we will have a number of in-store events for our customers to enjoy. These include fundraising activities in aid of our charity partner, the Princes Trust, which focusses on creating opportunities for young people to grow the skills and confidence to get into work.

Customers can enjoy visiting our Beauty Hall and filling up goodie bags with giveaways from our beauty team. There will also be an amazing offer of over 70 beauty products available for just £19.52!

Other activities will include a lucky dip, surprise gifts and a royal colouring competition for children. There will also be specially created ‘jubilee meal deals’ available.

As Manager of a busy store that’s at the heart of its local community, I also wanted to take this opportunity to reflect on the year. Our Beauty Hall is celebrating its first anniversary and has been a huge hit with our customers, who have also enjoyed the launch of new and innovative brands and the return of 17 cosmetics. Our No7 beauty counter is currently offering a new pro derm skincare scan service and in our Pharmacy we are offering a new hypertension service, both free to all our customers.
