National retailer Boots has opened a store at LBA, creating 12 new job opportunities as well as providing a range of travel essentials. The airside Boots UK store was officially opened in February and is located just after World Duty Free. This gives passengers the opportunity to stock up on any last minute health and beauty supplies once through security.
The 100m2 store has a wide range of travel essentials including healthcare, suncare, toiletries and miniatures. It also offers an extensive range on food and drink, as well as 3 for 2 deals on No7 skincare. For convenience, the Boots Order and Collect Service is also available from this store, which can be particularly handy for those travelling with limited luggage space to stock up on bulky items like nappies, or for passengers to travel with premium beauty items or gifts.
Darren Fussey, the new store manager at Boots Leeds Bradford Airport, said: “We are thrilled to be a part of an exciting time of redevelopment within the heart of the airport. We believe that we can really make a difference to the healthcare and beauty needs of the community in LBA, including not only the huge number of people who travel from the airport each year but also its large workforce."
Director for stores in the south and airports at Boots UK, Asif Aziz, visited LBA to officially open the new retail unit with Paul French, CFO at LBA and Richard Aldridge, commercial manager at LBA.
Paul French, CFO at Leeds Bradford Airport, added: “It’s fantastic to have officially opened the new Boots unit in the departure lounge at LBA. Boots is a prestigious national brand and so this new store opening is a positive sign of confidence in what we have to offer here at LBA and I’m sure it’ll be welcomed by our passengers.”
The store will open daily in line with the first and last flights from the airport, to ensure that all customers have access to the care, advice and great offers.
