From shop floor to Store Manager – Meet Rachel from Boots

Eagle eyed regulars to Boots at Market Place might see a familiar face in their new store manager – because Rachel Foster, who has worked at the store for over a decade is embarking on a new role. She follows in the footsteps of her Aunt, who worked at Boots for over 20 years.

We caught up with Rachel to find out about life at Boots over the last 12 years, asking her: There must be some memorable moments for you? “Starting my first day at the same Boots store with my Auntie and best friend who worked here too – with all the girls, it felt like a big family,” she says. “Auntie worked for Boots for over 20 years – my family compare me to her a lot!”

And with all that experience, Rachel is unsurprisingly a pro at Boots’ product range, “My favourite brand is definitely No7 – I use all their skincare and make-up. A premium brand at a reasonable price!”

After over a decade since her first day, Rachel has grown with the company – what keeps her there? Rachel says, “I love working with the public and getting the best for my customers. I feel at Boots we really care for our customers – we go the extra mile.”

Over the past ten years, Bolton has changed dramatically – the town centre now features a large range of high-street brands and an eclectic shopping experience. With so much variety available in Bolton, there’s no need to go elsewhere, “Most of my favourite shops are here, including Zara, Topshop and River Island”, says Rachel. The town has moved with the times, but the ethos at Boots hasn’t changed much at all, “Our customers are always at the heart of what of what we do”.

We’re sure you’ll join us in congratulating Rachel on her new role and wish her all the best in leading her team at Market Place, Bolton.
