I use them occasionally to maximise my extra loyalty points. Like get the echinacea and something cheap to get a lot of points.

But mostly use independent chemists here or in Southwold for chemist stuff.

Topshop empire "didn't come close to collapse" according to the headline:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-48617404

A relatively modest 50 stores (about 10% of the total) will be closing, which suggests that more will follow.

This was discussed back in April when it was first announced. We are in danger of becoming like the government and starting to double count.

But to be fair, Boots have now said 200 stores whereas the April story/rumour was about a rather smaller and unspecified number.
