All Holland & Barrett store associates have the equivalent of an A level in nutrition, and are therefore ‘Qualified to Advise’ customers on the best ways of maintaining a healthy lifestyle through nutrition and supplementation.

With the popularity of products such as Manuka Honey continuing to grow, customers in Hemel Hempstead will have a dedicated honey bay offering a wide range of honeys – from the highest MGO Manuka and unique craft honeys from around the world.

Store manager Sachin Patel said: “Myself and the rest of the team at Hemel Hempstead are thrilled to be re-opening our brand new store and showcasing its new look and feel to our customers.

"The improved layout will make it even easier for customers to discover the latest health and wellness products, including an increased range of vitamins, supplements and clean and conscious beauty products.

The store reopened this week

"Our store team of trained experts are looking forward to helping people in the community with advice on keeping well and looking after themselves, whether that’s sleep advice or customers who need some guidance on what vitamins and supplements might be right for them.”

The store has implemented new technology so customers can shop safely and conveniently.

A new click and collect service will allow customers to order online and then collect directly from the store at a time that is convenient for them.

Sustainability has been a focus in the design of the new store and lighting has been redesigned to be more efficient, reduce energy consumption and cut carbon emissions.

The store has also included social distancing features to help keep colleagues and customers safe, with the installation of shielding screens at each counter, alongside antibacterial hand gels for colleagues and customers to use.
