UK giant Boots to open first store in Oman

Leading UK pharmacy chain Boots is set to open its first store in Oman within the next two months.

Signage for the first Boots in the Sultanate can already be seen on the ground floor of the Oman Avenues Mall, near fellow UK chain Mothercare.

The shop is currently being fitted out with a view to opening in the autumn.

Oman Avenues Mall offers an eclectic range of retail outlets spread across 72,000 square metres.
