Littlehampton Boots store to close this month as part of national chain's cutbacks
and live on Freeview channel 276
It is another blow for the town’s retail industry, as the news comes after other big high street names closed their Littlehampton branches in the last couple of years, including New Look and M&Co.
Boots first announced plans to cut down from over 2,000 stores in the UK to just 1,900 in June but not all locations were confirmed.
The store has said that although stores are closing shoppers should still be within three miles of another Boots store. Staff will allegedly be offered alternative roles in other store locations.
Boots was established in 1849 by the Boots family; it quickly became the number one health and beauty retailer thanks to its quality products at affordable prices. Boots have their own brand products and premium No7 skin and make collections.
