Boots has shelved plans to launch its own marketplace, Retail Week can reveal.
The UK’s largest health and beauty retailer had previously announced it would be launching a marketplace in spring 2023 as part of its digital transformation post-pandemic, hailing it as an opportunity for third-party brands of any size to list their products on Boots.com.
However, Retail Week has learned that Boots has parked the idea of launching a separate marketplace and instead has rolled it into other ongoing initiatives, such as its dropship programme, which allows third-party brands to directly deliver to customers.
