8 reviews of Boots The Chemists in English
The largest store in Wolsey Place this branch of Boots is relatively well stocked and staffed.
They are large enough to stock premium brand cosmetics (Clarins, Estee Lauder, Clinique, Elizabeth Arden) and have a good general cosmetic section.
The children’s section is fairly basic although at Christmas the range of toys and gifts expands. They occassionally have some high ticket goods (buggies etc).
Seasonal ranges are well catered for with stock changing accordingly.
The opticians is small and, compared to the rest of the store, looks a bit tired. There is a great water cooler in here though!
The pharmacy offers good advice and is staffed by pleasant people.
Queues can be quite long at the main tills (no self-service tills) and so consider looking to see if the pharmacy or photo queues are shorter.
Some staff seem to object to you using coupons - a little persuasion will see them put them through though! There are 3 Advantage card machines in store - 2 at the Wolsey Place entrance and one near the main tills. There is no machine at the High Street entrance.
Closest parking is ToysRUs car park.
This is a large Boots store given the comparatively small area of Wolsey Place shopping centre, that is well stocked and brightly lit. It often gets very busy during peak times, which can make the aisles crowded and unpleasant, but that is more a testament to the store’s popularity than as a criticism of it.
The store offers a range of cosmetics, perfumes, health and beauty products, as well as opticians, babywear and photography sections, all of which are well stocked and organised so things are easy to find.
The Boots point system is often a very postive aspect of the store, and there are a number of points machines around the store so you can check your balance and print off any of their many offers that they have available.
It shuts reasonably early for a Boots, in accordance with the opening hours of the Wolsey Place centre; usually 5:30, but at times they seem to try and pull the shutters down over the shop earlier (5:10 onwards) which can be intimidating if you wanted to nip in and buy something just before the store closes. Likewise at times the queues are quite bad, and despite having a number of tills it is rare that all of them are operating at once.
The best Boots I’ve been to!
It is very large, with every possible section you need (kids, gifts, travel accessories, photo, makeup, nails, allergy medicine, and hair removal amusingly situated in the aisle after hair care…), all brands (from No.7, to Lancôme through Bourjois, Maybelline and more), lunch sandwiches and “Boots Opticians”.
Phew, hope I got them all!
They always have some promotion or other, and I invariably walk by once a week to see if there’s anything new in the Soap & Glory range, or a good deal on the cosmetic ranges I use.
For a tiny town such as Woking, this is an amazing Boots!
For Christmas it now stays open until 7 or 8pm depending on the days, but usually it’s shut by 17:45 which makes it quite a challenge to get to when you’re working full-time.
A great sized Boots store. It has a excellent range of goods with an Opticians, photo dept, young childrens clothes and a pharmacy all in store. You get the usual make up and perfume counters, masses of toiletries and some present items too.
Good bargains to be had at times and always worth using their Advantage card.
Lunch deals are wonderful as their food is delicious.
Close to car park (nearest ones are the Toys R Us car park or Wolsey Place).
This is a lovely sized Boots store that is great at this time of year for picking up presents. The perfume section is nice and large and it also has a opticians which is handy. The staff are knowlegeable and the shelves are always stocked well. It can get busy at this time of year but it is worth a trip in for a browse.
Large well-lit store accessible from Wolsey Walk or Commercial Way. Large perfume and make up sections. Opticians, Pharmacy and photography counter all in store.There is also a small babywear section, as well as all the usual things you’d expect to find here.
Usually has plenty of Christmas gift items
