The history of Holland Barrett goes back all the way to 1870 when two friends named – surprisingly – Holland and Barrett opened a grocery store in Epsom, Surrey.
However, it was from the 1970s onwards that the chain really took off, carving a niche as the UK’s number one retailer of vitamin supplements, other fitness products and homeopathic remedies. Suddenly, there seemed to be Holland and Barrett shops in every town.
These days, the firm employs over 7,000 people at over 700 UK outlets, and also runs a popular online store. With no sign that the British appetite for healthy food and supplements is declining, Holland and Barrett continue to thrive.
