After my comment last Sunday about the possible demise of Boots in the High Street due to the imminent opening of the Tesco pharmacy. Not possible says a reader due to the 'druggy brigade' needing their emergency treatments from a central source that was easily accessable to all. Well, as I replied at the time: I couldn't possibly get involved with insider information like that.
I had occasion to go in the the said emporium to get some vitamin tablets today. No comments please; at my age they help! I went to the till at the dispensary counter and a very helpful assistant said did I know about the special offers for customers over 60? It was then explained to me that if I changed my Advantage card to the new version I could get the discount today.... Instead of paying £14 the actual cost was £7. Now that's what I call a bargain and no worries if you're not over 60, if you still register they'll give you 10% off Boots branded stuff. Maybe I'll just stick to Tesco's for my prescription stuff 'cos I shop there anyway once a week and continue to patronise Boots Emporium while in the town; for all those little pharmaceutical extras... if it stays there that is, after giving away deals like that!
