Galway Daily business Boots unveils brand-new store at Knocknacarra retail park

The new Boots store is now open at the Gateway Retail Park in Knocknacarra.

As part of Boots’ continued investment into the growth and expansion of stores around the country, the company is proud to announce the opening of its third store in Galway, bringing the total of stores across the Republic of Ireland to 89.

Customers visiting the new store will have access to a full pharmacy service, including expert pharmacists who will be on hand to offer trusted advice and help with prescriptions. 

The impressive 478sqm of space will facilitate a wide range of health and wellness products, as well as top beauty brands including No7, Clinique, NYX Professional Make Up, and many more! 

There are also free car parking spaces for Boots customers, meaning these services are even more accessible for the residents of Galway.

At this unprecedented time, Boots Ireland recognises its role as a valuable resource for patients and customers who are seeking support, reassurance and information. 

The health and safety of customers, patients and colleagues remains the highest priority and the Boots Knocknacarra team have been working incredibly hard to ensure that the store and pharmacy is the safest place for customers to shop, in line with government guidelines. 

Safety measures include a queueing system to control the number of people in the store at any one time and clear signage throughout the store to help maintain social distancing. Every purchase made in the store will be done in the safest way possible, with Perspex screens for counters, tills and self-checkouts. 

Customers will also be able to avail of the Boots Order and Collect service for ease and convenience, with all colleagues having access to the PPE they need to ensure they are safe to serve customers. 

Store Manager David Boyce is excited about the opening and what it can offer Galway: “We are delighted to open the doors to our new Boots Ireland store in Knocknacarra. 

The new store will provide local residents with access to our wide range of pharmacy, health and beauty products and services and we look forward to welcoming them to the store in the near future.”
