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.
