Boots offer new service - Order & collect

Whilst browsing the Boots website a couple of weeks ago, I noticed that Boots now offer customers the option of placing their order online and then collecting it free from a store of their choice.

Orders are available to pick up within 3-4 working days.

This is great for those whose local branches don't stock brands such as Estee Lauder, Benefit Clinique, Urban Decay, Origins etc which can all be found on the Boots website.

I read elsewhere that this service was based on a minimum order of £25 but I tested it out and successfully went through checkout with just a mascara costing just £4.86 in my basket, so this appears to be untrue. There's also no mention of a minimum spend on the Boots website either which I think is great!

I'll definitely be using this feature at some point in the future given that my local Boots, although quite large doesn't stock all the high end brands Boots offers and is within walking distance of my house.

Unfortunately this service is not available in Republic of Ireland branches as yet.

Thats fab isn't it! It annoys me when i see something on the site but its not available in my local store because by then i'll have convinced myself i NEED the item! x

That's a great idea!

The only bugbear I have about the Boots website is that it doesn't stock everything the store sells which is a bit of a pain sometimes but it will be useful for brands such as UD. I won't have to trek to Oxford Street to pick them up.

Superdrug should do the same, the Sleek palettes would fly off the shelves.
