Holland & Barrett was founded in 1870, by Major William Holland and Alfred Slapps Barrett, who bought a grocery store, in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire. By 1900 they had another shop, in Epsom.
Holland & Barrett was bought by Alfred Button & Sons in the 1920s and has had many owners since then, including foodservice wholesaler Booker, in 1970, drugstore Lloyds Pharmacy in 1992 and American vitamin manufacturer, Nature’s Bounty Inc, in 1997. Most recent sale, in June 2017, was to LetterOne, a retail group owned by Mikhail Fridman. LetterOne paid £1.8 billion, for the chain, which has 1300 shops in sixteen countries.
Holland & Barrett is synonymous with vitamins, ethical beauty products ,vegan and free from food, some of which is organic. It sells over 9000 products.
Holland & Barrett has a reputation for being expensive, which is perhaps unwarranted, because the regular Buy One Get One For A Penny offers are generous and cover a wide range of products.
Another thing which sets Holland & Barrett apart, is the standard of staff training. H&B employees can get training in food & drink, sports nutrition and beauty to a recognised QCF qualification and Holland & Barrett works with the Institute of Leadership Management. Holland & Barrett is a company which believes in diversity and inclusion and is a member of LGBT charity Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme.
Rewards For Life, is the Holland & Barrett customer loyalty card, which can be used in-store and online http://www.hollandandbarrett.com We once bought £58-worth of food, and due to a combination of reward vouchers and offers, paid just £25.
MaisonCool uses Holland & Barrett as the go-to store for vitamins and perodically, we buy quite a few food items.
