Holland & Barrett to close stores on 25 and 26 December to thank colleagues


Holland and Barrett has announced plans to close all its store in the UK and Ireland on Saturday 25th December and Sunday 26th December 2021, as a thank you to colleagues for their efforts during the pandemic.

Over 5000 colleagues across the UK and Ireland, including the distribution centre, have been given the well-earned break.

Anthony Houghton, group retail and property director at Holland & Barrett, said “The decision to close our stores in the UK and Ireland on 25th and 26th December, one of the busiest trading periods of the year, is to say thank you to our colleagues who have worked tirelessly and under very difficult restrictions since the coronavirus pandemic began in 2020.

“I would like to thank everyone at Holland & Barrett for their continued hard work and commitment to each other and our customers and hope this time away from work will allow them to spend quality time with loved ones over this period.”

Holland & Barrett stores will be open as usual on 24th December and will reopen on 27th December. Customers will be able to place orders as usual on www.hollandandbarrett.com over this period.
