Health and beauty giant Boots has unveiled its new store at Beardmore Retail Park in Martlesham.

Creating 22 new jobs, the shop – which will have a customer base of around 67,000 people – opened its doors with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

And bosses have revealed the store will offer pharmacy services – including flu and travel vaccinations – alongside big beauty brands.

“We know that our customers in Martlesham are really looking forward to being able to shop from all of their favourite brands at Boots, and we can’t wait to welcome them into the beautiful new unit.
