6. Student Discount FAQs & Summary

History of the Company

Holland and Barrett was formed in 1870 by, yes, you’ve guessed it, a Mr Holland (Major William Holland) and a Mr Barrett (Alfred Slapps Barnett). Originally selling just groceries and a small range of clothing, the business eventually split into two separate shops; one for each.

Changing hands a few times through the years, the brand’s focus into vitamins and supplements with other assorted health products has helped it develop and gain popularity amongst a niche market that seems to be growing as society looks more for health products and services. The brand has become so synonymous with such products that the MP David Tredinnick, who is extremely pro-homeopathy, is known colloquially as the ‘Right Honourable Member for Holland and Barrett’!

Most recently, Holland and Barrett was sold to Russian retail group L1 Retail. Since, the company has extended its reach globally with a franchising program that has spread the brand across 16 countries including Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, China, Hong Kong, India and the United Arab Emirates. The brand is famed for its short and sharp discounted sales and is often the only high street store to stock a range of items that are otherwise only available online.
