Boots extends last Christmas delivery dates – but customers must be quick

Martin Lewis reveals Boots Christmas beauty set deals

Boots has today confirmed it will be extending the final Christmas delivery dates after the Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced parts of England will be heading into Tier 4. Under the current Tier 4 guidelines, non-essential shops are closed, causing many turning online to shop for last-minute Christmas gifts.

Customers can order gifts via Click & Collect up to 6pm on Tuesday for delivery before Christmas.

The last date for home delivery is now extended to 4pm on Tuesday.

However these orders must be placed with next day delivery for guaranteed delivery before the big day on Friday.

The Boots Click & Collect service provides customers with free delivery on their website for orders over £20.

These orders are then delivered straight to Boots stores and can be picked up after the customer is notified it is in-store.

In anticipation of increased online demand already this year, Boots has increased the capacity on Boots.com to ensure customers could shop with confidence during the festive period.

The website continues to operate 24 hours a day where customers can shop across the full range of Christmas gifts, including fragrance, electrical beauty and premium beauty.

There are also some offers across gifts including three items for the price of two.

Boots stores will remain open, regardless of the tier, to ensure customers have access to everything they need.

This includes healthcare, medicines, prescriptions, pharmacy service and advice though.

While in store, customers will also have access to purchase additional products from the rest of the store, including baby, beauty and their gifting range.

The retailer also recently announced that more than 300 Boots stores will have extended opening hours, with more staff on hand to help customers shop safely throughout the festive period.

The extended hours will also help ease the flow of shoppers, making the stores less busy.

Tracey Clements, Chief Operating Officer at Boots, commented: “With lockdown easing in some areas of the UK today, for many, this is the real start of Christmas. Our shops have been open throughout the pandemic, so our colleagues are experts in helping you to shop safely and with confidence.

“To ensure a safe shopping experience we are extending the opening hours in 301 of our stores in England and will increase staffing in key cities.”

Customers can use their online store locator tool to check what stores have extended their opening hours.

To help stay safe in-store, customers need to keep a safe distance from other customers in-store while wearing a face covering.

The retailer may also be limiting the number of people allowed in-store and this means that there may be a queue to enter the store at peak times.

A statement on their website says: “Please stay two metres apart from your fellow customers and store colleagues as you shop.

“There are floor markings in selected stores outside for queuing and at the checkout, as well as Perspex screens at tills and pharmacy counters to help keep everyone safe.

“Our stores are cleaned regularly, with particular attention paid to key touchpoints. If you have an appointment, please be assured that we will use disposable equipment where possible and thoroughly clean the area.”
