History of Boots
Boots was established by John Boot in 1849 in Nottingham. Boots expanded and eventually began researching and manufacturing drugs, the first of which was the Ibuprofen painkiller. After many mergers and acquisitions over the years, Boots now has over 2500 stores in the UK. Did you know, it is estimated that around 90% of the population is within a 10-minute drive of a boots store? If you are unlucky enough to not live near a physical store, you’ll find the latest Boots sale info and promotions at Boots.com.
