Boots UK has launched a new on-demand beauty delivery service at 14 pilot stores across the country and will expand the service to more stores if it proves successful.

The partnership allows shoppers access to more than 400 Boots products on demand, including a range of medicines for minor ailments, toiletries and baby essentials. Delivery can be made in as little as 20 minutes.

Boots.com saw a 85% rise in orders between 1 March 2020 and 1 March 2021. It already offers next day click and collect and home delivery for online orders.

Paula Bobbett, director of boots.com at Boots UK, said: “We have carefully selected over 400 products for this launch to help our customers get the things they need, when they need them. Our online business continues to grow and this partnership offers our customers a new way to access our products quickly and easily.”

Carlo Mocci, chief business officer UKI at Deliveroo, said: “This partnership will mean more choice and selection for our consumers, delivered in as little as 20 minutes, and will create more work for riders across the UK.”
