What's happening? A global pandemic of an infectious disease, shops closed, and a lockdown order for people to stay at home and not go out unless it's essential to do so. Have some patience and maybe use your waiting time to have a little think about the crisis that this virus has caused in this country.

From Boots, the Chemist?

Medicines, perhaps?

i did think that, but you go to another site as i just tried and the online chemist site is fine. it is just the online shop.
Paracetamols

Paracetamols


there won't be any paracetamol left anywhere so no point now. similarly toilet paper as boots also sell toilet paper but doubt they would have any in stock nowadays.

My wife spent most the afternoon in a queue for the Asda site.

It's refreshing to see some decent online queueing systems though - and not just a totally dead website because of the amount of traffic!

I ordered 9x face powders before the lockdown officially started... I didn’t want to risk looking like a grizzly bear by the time we go back to normal!

i guess as we are now in lockdown, people will be ordering online from everywhere so soon that will also be up the creek for most retailers as well as all the delivery drivers for online goods. they will be doing a huge yodel and DPD recruitment next.

superdrug site seems to fine though and they sell pretty much what boots does. can you buy your stuff from there instead? superdrugs is always my first port of call as i find boots more pricey than them.
I just joined the queue. There must be something good. My father used to say that if there is a queue there is something special to buy.

9 face powders? blooming heck that will last until the next pandemic!
especially as now you can't go out, so what's the point in wearing makeup as you got no where to go except to the supermarket.

Have you seen my face???... I even sleep with it on so nobody has a scare first thing in the morning!
If you're concerned about a 10 minute wait I just hope you don't loose your job and have to call Universal credit, I was on hold for over 3 hours on Monday because the online application told me I needed to call them to prove my identity
Boots are struggling for delivery drivers and priorities lay with medication which is why the online system is slow.

My greatest achievement this week was grabbing 6 boxes of Tampax for my other half from the Boots website at approx 5am before they disappeared out of stock again - this happened on the day of our 11th anniversary. No other website or shop in our local area appeared to have any. What a time to be alive.

Not in our store. We close at 1715 now during the week. You have to join the line regardless of prescription or shopping as only allow 3 in at one time. We have stock including paracetamol, codeine and Calpol coming in 3 times a week

You'll be surprised.
I managed to secure two packets during the peak of panic buying from Lidl. Then walked across to Savers and secured another two.

i did worry the other day when i went into sainsburys to get sanitary towels and there was not much left but i went to another sainsburys store and they had loads in so it does depend on which store you go to.
