Deerfield Illinois-based drugstore Walgreens is finally preparing to roll-out two of their British acquisitions Boots’ most impressive private brands to stores across the US this fall. Boots’ No7 and Soap & Glory private brands will debut on hit shelves as well as beauty consultants in select stores. Consultants will be trained in clinical skin care and makeovers. Managing Director of Boots Retail USA, Lyle Tick told Women’s Wear Daily (WWD) “Our portfolio is in its infancy in the biggest beauty market in the world. The next couple of years brings tremendous opportunity. We’re bringing brands with proven traction elsewhere, but in the Americas, we are at the beginning of the brands’ life cycle – we’re still new here.”
