Our dedication to offering great value has remained unchanged and because we believe that our customers deserve great quality and value all year long, we check thousands of prices every single week. This keeps us up to date with what's happening in the market so we can be more competitive.

But we believe value is about more than just price. We bring great value to our customers in lots of other ways including fantastic promotions throughout the year, expert health and beauty advice and 4 points per €1 with our famous Advantage Card. Our customers can also sign up for extra benefits, such as our More Treats for Over 60s scheme.


  • Our highly skilled beauty consultants offer our customers free beauty advice


  • Our trained pharmacists offer customers quality health and wellbeing advice
  • Our new Essentials range includes great quality toiletries from prices as low as 65c! And all of the products are created and developed by Boots
  • We have one of the most generous loyalty schemes on the high street, giving our customers an amazing 4 points per €1 with our Advantage Card.


We're committed to offering our customers innovative and fantastic new products. We do this through our brand expertise along with our strong product development and sourcing capabilities.

Many of our product brands, such as No7 skin care and make up, hold market leading positions in the UK and are growing fast in both profile and market penetration.

Almost all of our innovative, unique products are developed in our own product development, testing and customer evaluation facilities in Nottingham, UK. These unique facilities provide us with a significant skills and resource base to evolve and grow our product portfolio giving our customers innovative and fantastic new products.


Boots.ie launched in June 2013 offering our customers the opportunity to buy health, beauty and baby products online. The launch of boots.ie also means every store now has the ability to order products for their customers, meaning customers have access to the entire range of Boots products in every store.

We are developing even more ways for our customers to shop with us; in October 2014 we launched our 'order & collect' service followed by the launch of our boots.ie mobile site in November 2014. This helps ensure that our customers can access the fantastic Boots range that we are famous for in the most convenient way for them.

We're here to help our customers look and feel better than they ever thought possible.

Our larger Boots health and beauty stores offer destination shopping with a wide range of products including all Boots leading brands. Our flagship stores also offer beauty halls with beauty consultants and premium cosmetics. Our Boots airport stores have targeted ranges to meet the needs of our customers when they're travelling.

And we will reach even more of our customers where they want us by continuing to acquire new pharmacies, putting pharmacy at the heart of our communities.

Our dedicated team, located in Dublin, supports our stores and customers.

Take a look at this video to find out more about some of our initiatives.

Irish Cancer Society

Our award-winning partnership with €205,000 raised for Irish Cancer Society in 2013

Our partnership with the Irish Cancer Society was awarded Best Corporate Charity Partnership at this year's Fundraising Ireland awards. The judges remarked that our combination of fundraising, in-store cancer services and the investment in colleague training all combined to provide support for those affected by the disease.

To date we have raised over €450,000 through local events in stores coupled with our national fundraisers like our night walk for night nurses and Blue Hair Day in conjunction with Today FM's Shave or Dye Campaign. All money raised goes to support the Irish Cancer Society night nursing service, which provides free end of life care to cancer patients and their families nationwide.

Boots beauty advisors

In September 2013 we launched this fantastic programme to train our No7 consultants on how to support those who are undergoing treatment for cancer.





Business in the community

In partnership with Business in the community we supported the schools programme which helps leaving cert pupils in disadvantaged areas stay in school and finish their education.
With the Ready for work scheme we help disadvantaged people gain work experience in our stores.

Dress for success

On 27 February 2013 we launched our partnership with Dress for Success, where our No7 advisors help women gain the confidence to return to the workplace through starter interview kits and make up consultations.






Business Working Responsibly award

We are delighted to announce that Boots Ireland Ltd is proud to become the first retailer in ROI to achieve this accolade. The Business Working Responsibly Mark is essentially a third party evaluation of our achievements in sustainable and responsible practices across our entire operation in order to achieve independent verification by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) of our corporate responsibility practices. This is a great recognition of Boots Ireland, and we would like to thank all our customers for your ongoing support for all our corporate responsibility initiatives.
