Beauty and health giant Boots has confirmed a list of huge store closures, revealing another group of branches that will shut along with dates - is your local on the list?

Boots confirmed earlier this year they would be closing a staggering 300 stores as they fail to escape the grasp of the cost of living crisis taking over the UK.

Another victim of the high street, which also includes Wilko's and Wetherspoons, the beauty and health giant, has finally revealed the first eight stores which will close before 2023 is out.
