Boots UK has announced the acquisition of Burrells Limited, the owner of two pharmacies in Carnoustie.

The two Burrells pharmacies have provided excellent healthcare advice and support to the local community since 2001, a service Boots UK is delighted to be able to continue.

Stephen Watkins, head of region, Boots UK, said: “We are very pleased to welcome to Boots UK such a strong pharmacy team, and to be able to work with them to help people feel in control of their health and offer the Boots range of healthcare products and services to the community of Carnoustie.

“We have been part of local communities in Scotland for over 100 years and are looking forward to playing an active role in supporting the health of the local high street in Carnoustie through these two pharmacies.

Rebranding of Burrells pharmacies will commence from April 1. The new ‘Your local Boots pharmacy’ stores will provide an even wider choice of health and beauty products and services to customers including an order and collect service.

Customers will also be able to order the full range of health and beauty products from and have them delivered directly to their local store free of charge.

The new rebranded Boots pharmacies will continue to offer all current pharmacy services, as well as introducing well known Boots product brands such as No7, Botanics and Soltan to the pharmacies.
