Boots opens its new Corby store

RETAIL giant Boots is opening a new store in Corby on Wednesday, creating 20 jobs.

The store at The Peel Centre, Phoenix Parkway, will be opened by Kevin Birch, the company’s UK divisional director for the eastern region.

Darren Parfitt, manager of the new store, said: “Our new Boots store will provide the residents of Corby with access to our wide range of health and beauty products and services, as well as great value promotions and offers.

“We have over 160 years of healthcare and beauty expertise, so our customers can expect the very best from us. We’re looking forward to welcoming customers into our new store for all their health and beauty needs.”

The store is in addition to three other branches in the Corby area, including the main shop in Queens Square, in the town centre.

Staff are planning several events to celebrate the opening, including a Miles for Macmillan cycling event to raise funds and awareness of Macmillan Cancer Support.

A spokesman for Boots said the new store will offers a wide range of health and beauty products, as well as a dispensing pharmacy, a consultancy room, baby products and clothing, a photographic kiosk and electrical beauty items.
