Boots partners Uber Eats on doorstep delivery

Boots has announced a delivery pilot with Uber Eats.

The new initiative will initially be trialled at 14 Boots stores including outlets on London’s Oxford Street, Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, and Market Street, Manchester.

Customers within range will be to choose from over 900 of the health & beauty retailer’s products - from toiletries to minor ailment medicines and skincare - and have them delivered to their door by Uber Eats.

Commenting on the partnership, Paula Bobbett, chief digital officer at Boots, said: “As the first health and beauty retailer on Uber’s platform, we can offer an extensive range of product options to customers for delivery straight to their door.”

She continued: “Whether it’s medicines for mild illnesses or last-minute gifts, beauty items or top-ups of a favourite skincare brand, we can meet all our customers’ needs both quickly and conveniently.”

The pair up with Uber Eats follows Boots’ recent announcement of an expansion of its partnership with Deliveroo to 125 of its UK stores.

"We are delighted to announce our new partnership with Boots, the leading health and beauty retailer in the UK,” said Alex Troughton, head of commerce at Uber Eats UK. “As customers are increasingly using Uber Eats to get anything, this partnership will mean high quality health and beauty products delivered in minutes.”
