Europe’s leading health and wellness retailer Holland & Barrett is officially opening a new flagship store on Henry Street in Dublin’s busy north city shopping district. The new store will be Ireland’s largest flagship for Holland & Barrett and will see the addition of two consultation rooms as well as a wide range of health foods, vitamins and supplements, sports nutrition and natural beauty products.
Customers will be able to experience new wellness services, with a team of ‘Qualified to Advise’ colleagues and a Wellness Expert available to offer personalised support as H&B look to help its customers be more proactive in managing their health. Services include a selection of diagnostic tests as well as biometric testing and BMI analysis. Sports and fitness enthusiasts will be able to benefit from nutrition advice as well as access to Les Mills subscriptions which will be on offer in the new look store.
Terri Dougal, Director of Stores in Ireland for Holland & Barrett says, “Over recent years and especially since the pandemic, we’ve seen a rise in people looking for help to support both their physical and mental wellness. Through a combination of advice, diagnostic services and a curated range of wellness products, it’s now easier than ever for our customers in Dublin to get the support they need to achieve their personal wellness goals.
Our colleagues across Ireland have received enhanced training and our website and stores offer one of the largest ranges of natural health and wellness products. Henry Street looks amazing and I am personally really excited to start welcoming and supporting our customers in this new flagship wellness store.”
The latest opening is part of an ongoing multi-million euro investment by Holland & Barrett, with €5 million invested over the last 12 months on new store openings, relocations and refits across the country alone. In addition to its dedicated Irish website (www.hollandandbarrett.ie), the company now operates 62 stores across the Republic with 314 ‘Qualified to Advise’ wellness advisors in stores. The latest expansion has created 30 new job roles with a further 60 roles planned over the next year.
The Henry Street store also encompasses the latest trends in wellness store design creating a comfortable and easy shopping experience for customers. The fit materials are sustainably sourced and Holland & Barrett aims to make it as simple as possible to make natural, healthy and more sustainable choices across its range.
The store is open seven-days-a-week. For the month of September, customers shopping in the new store on Henry Street will receive 20% off their first purchase until 30th September. The first 100 customers shopping in the store on Saturday 10th September will get a bag of wellness goodies worth over €50.
Wellness consultations will be available seven days a week and are open to walk-ins.
