Health food and lifestyle retailer Holland & Barrett has opened a two-floor store on Oxford Street

Holland & Barrett opened the two-floor, ground and basement, 6,000 sq ft flagship store at the Marble Arch end of Oxford Street yesterday.

Dubbed a Holland & Barrett ‘More’ store, the unit is some five times larger than the retailer’s average outpost.

It features, among other things, a vegan nail bar, an olive bar and, in the basement, an extended sports nutrition area with a body composition machine enabling customers to get their vital health statistics and advice on how to get fitter. 

The store also has a substantial space devoted to beauty, which a spokeswoman for the retailer says has been a strong growth area.
