Walgreens Boots Alliance to close 200 Boots stores?

Walgreens Boots Alliance is mulling the closure of some 200 Boots stores across the UK, according to a report published by The Independent, quoting Sky News as its source.

The drugstore behemoth operates some 2,485 Boots pharmacies across the UK but after reporting its ‘most difficult’ quarter to date warned that closures may follow.

“We currently do not have a major programme envisaged but as you’d expect we always review underperforming stores and seek out opportunities for consolidation,” a spokesperson for the UK retailer told The Independent. “As is natural with a business of our size, we have stores opening, closing and relocating on a regular basis, but we have had around 2,500 stores open for several years now.”
