One of London’s oldest pharmacies has teamed up with a super-speedy internet delivery service to make sure Londoners are never short of health and beauty products again. John Bell & Croyden has been trading from the West End since 1798, and has been on its current site in Wigmore Street for more than a century. The venerable pharmacy – one of Time Out’s 100 best shops in London – had a major refurbishment last year, and it’s keeping ahead of the pack in 2016 by partnering with huge internet retailer Amazon.
What does this mean? Basically, if you’re an Amazon Prime member and you live or work in the right London postcode, you can get more than 7,000 products delivered to you within two hours – or one hour for a small fee of £6.99 – at the click of a button. John Bell & Croyden stocks all sorts of beauty, spa, skincare, health and wellbeing goodies, sourced expertly from Britain and beyond. That includes plenty of new innovations: they were the first UK pharmacy to stock the full range of Bioderma micellar skincare products, for instance.
The high-end shop with its marble floor and rose gold fixtures is well worth a visit, but if you’re trying to dodge the West End’s Christmas crowds or just need an urgent beauty top-up, this could be just the ticket. Prime members in London can download the app now. And since John Bell & Croyden has held the royal warrant as pharmacists to Her Majesty The Queen for more than 50 years, keep your eyes peeled for Amazon Prime Now vehicles headed towards Buckingham Palace.
