Boots increased its market share for the 13th consecutive quarter

The health and beauty retailer’s total UK sales grew 1.6% while comparable retail sales grew 6% on a constant currency basis.

Boots said it saw growth across all categories with its market share increasing for the 13th consecutive quarter.

Investment in the Boots app resulted in more customers choosing to shop personalised offers via their phones, rocketing digital sales by 13.8%, representing 15.6% of total retail sales. In-store sales were boosted by an increase in footfall in flagship, destination health and beauty and travel stores.

Pharmacy sales were up 5.8%, driven by a strong demand for healthcare services ahead of the summer holidays.

Sign-ups to Boots Advantage Card increased 5.8% as the focus on value and Price Advantage schemes remained popular.

Seb James, Boots UK and Ireland chief executive, said: “This is another set of consistently strong results for Boots. I am pleased to see our positive momentum continue across the whole business, with both retail and healthcare increasing sales and a 13th consecutive quarter of market share growth.

“We continue to focus on making exciting new brands and services accessible, while focusing on value and rewarding loyalty. We are committed to delivering a fantastic experience for customers however they shop with us.

“I would like to thank our incredible team members for their continued hard work and ongoing commitment to deliver for our customers every day.”
