A city centre shop in York has set a closing date.
The Boots store on Kings Square will shut on 28 October.
A sign on its window says: “This store will close on 28.10.2023. Your nearest store for collecting prescriptions will be 43 Coney Street.”
The branch is to shut as part of a nationwide closure programme by the chain of chemists.
It is shutting 300 of its 2,200 stores in the next few months.
Boots said there are no proposed redundancies despite the plan, with plans to redeploy affected workers.
A Boots spokeswoman said in June: “Evolving the store estate in this way allows Boots to concentrate its team members where they are needed and focus investment more acutely in individual stores with the ambition of consistently delivering an excellent and reliable service in a fresh and up-to-date environment.”
The decision to close the Kings Square branch and direct shoppers to its flagship store on Coney Street comes despite that shop being under threat.
Under the Coney Street Riverside scheme, now in with the council, number 43 Coney Street – which now houses Boots – would be knocked down.
The demolition would create a new route from Coney Street to the River Ouse.
In February, Boots responded to the planned demolition.
A spokesperson said: “We’re committed to retaining our presence in the city centre.
“The lease on our Coney Road store is due to end later this year, and we are in the process of reviewing alternative options.
“As we have continued to do, we will keep our team members and customers informed throughout this process.”
