A message from our team at Boots Opticians & Hearingcare To help protect the health and well-being of our customers and our colleagues in these challenging times, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily close our Opticians and Hearingcare stores across the UK. A small number of stores will remain open to care for those with essential or emergency eye and hearing care needs. You can view a list of these stores at bootsopticians.com or bootshearingcare.com from Tuesday 24th March. A huge thanks to our team who have worked tirelessly up until this point to keep services open with great care and community spirit. We are constantly monitoring the situation, working with government guidance and the NHS, and we will open our doors again as soon as we can. We look forward to seeing you then.
