BOOTS is reviewing the future of its pharmacy in Stourport town centre, but insists closure plans have not been confirmed.

Staff at the high street store have been informed that a review is under way, which the company says is in response to the "challenging market conditions in the UK".

A Boots spokesman said: "We can confirm we’re currently reviewing our store in Stourport-on-Severn, but no plans have been confirmed yet.

"As a business with a large estate, we continually review our store locations to make sure they are where our customers need us most, particularly in light of the challenging market conditions in the UK.”

Boots said that if a decision is made to close the store, all staff will be offered jobs at nearby branches "where possible".
