Boots Ireland, the Irish subsidiary of the health and beauty retailer and pharmacy chain, has announced the opening of two new stores in Harold’s Cross and Deansgrange in Dublin.

As part of Boots continued investment into the growth and expansion of stores around the country, the two store openings brings the total number of Boots stores in the Republic of Ireland to 93.

“Boots Ireland is continuing to expand its comprehensive offering to customers and patients in the local communities across Ireland, with the latest store openings in Deansgrange and Harold’s Cross brining our total number of stores in the country to 93. This is an exciting milestone to begin the year with, and I wish the teams in both stores every success,” said  Stephen Watkins, Managing Director of Boots Ireland.

The Harold’s Cross store, located at 280 Harold’s Cross Road in Dublin 6, opened its doors this week and will employ 14 people. Customers will have access to pharmacy services including prescription services, blood pressure testing and emergency contraception, with additional services planned over the coming months.

Jackie Doyle, Store Manager, Boots Harold’s Cross store said: “It is very exciting to have opened our new premises in Harold’s Cross. This is great news for the local community, as we are offering a wide range of healthcare and pharmacy services.”

Based on Clonkeen Road, Deansgrange, the former Grange Pharmacy was acquired by Boots last year and has since undergone refurbishment works to offer customers an extended offering of beauty, health, and wellness products, as well as a broader range of pharmacy services. The new store in Deansgrange employs 13 people in the locality, including members of the original Grange Pharmacy team.

Kirsty Farnan, Store Manager, Boots Deansgrange, said: “We are delighted to open the doors to our new Boots Ireland store in Deansgrange. We welcome our new team members that join us from the Grange Pharmacy who have worked here for many years and we look forward to welcoming old and new customers to the store.”
