    Heard a rumour that Boots (UK Pharmacy thing) is going to be coming to HK. Is this true!?

    It'll be interesting to see how they compete with Watsons

    Hi all - yes it is true!

    Boots Hong Kong had their official launch yesterday and announced that the first location of their HK stores will be opening on October 22nd in Causeway Bay with further locations to be announced in the coming months.

    I for one am extremely excited about this news! :)

    I've always used Watsons or Mannings since I have always lived in HK.. What's different about Boots?

    It costs more and makes women weak at the knees

    ^ LOL to Scotty's comment. Yea its just another company that a lot of people seem to like. They sell a lot of products within there and actually have a large range which they produce themselves.

    Whenever I go to Bangkok I stock up at Boots on Koh San Road because they stock own brand stuff (and Nurofen) very cheaply. Doubt if that'll be the case in Hong Kong though...
