Resident Michael Still said: "It is sad news to hear that the Boots branches in Bletchley are closing. The Brunel Centre and the Beacon Retail Park, the nearest Boots being Westcroft. I was giving this information at Boots when trying to process a prescription."

"We continually review our store and pharmacy network to ensure that we balance our commitment to offer provision where it is most needed with our need to adapt to a changing market environment.

“Following a recent review, we can confirm that the pharmacy provision in our store in Beacon Retail Park will close later this month. The Boots store will remain open for our customers.

“We can also confirm that our store in Bletchley Brunel Centre will close in April 2022. Our nearby store at Kingston, Milton Keynes, will continue to offer pharmacy and retail services to our customers.”
