HADLEIGH has welcomed Boots to the town centre with the opening of a new look pharmacy in the high street.

Following the merger of Boots and Alliance Pharmacy into Boots UK, the former Alliance Pharmacy in Hadleigh was one of 700 stores across the UK to undergo a revamp and a change of name to 'your local Boots pharmacy'.

The store retains the same expert healthcare and prescription service from the same knowledgeable team, but customers now benefit from an improved range of beauty and lifestyle products, including a wide choice from the Boots own brand range.

The layout in the new Boots store also provides private consultation areas with facilities to carry out advisory services and point of care tests, as well as access to a range of healthcare services including medicine reviews and managed prescription collection.
