Holland & Barrett

Holland & Barrett was formed in 1870 by Alfred Slapps Barrett and Major William Holland, who
bought a grocery store, selling groceries and clothing.

They developed their business into two shops – a grocery store and a clothing store. It is also evident that in 1900 they occupied a store in the High Street of Epsom. In the 1920s, Alfred Button & Sons bought the business and kept the name Holland & Barrett.

Holland & Barrett is now Europe's leading retailer of Vitamins, Minerals and Herbal Supplements.
There stores are a familiar sight in almost every major city and town across the United Kingdom and Ireland, where they operate over 620 outlets.

Since the turn of 2016, Holland & Barrett have undertaken a major refurbishment programme in its stores to not only improve the lighting but also benefit from the vast savings LED fittings offer.

Old, highly inefficient fluorescent tube fittings have been replaced with LEDTec LED panels, down lights and wall washers whilst the shop windows are now illuminated by high output, low energy LED spot and floodlights.

Holland & Barrett’s sister company GNC UK Ltd has also benefited from this programme, and in early 2016, it’s flagship store in Covent Garden, London was refitted in an unique but also energy saving style.


This unique look was achieved with LEDTec LED highbay fittings and LED floodlights offering not
only an industrial appearance but an energy saving solution as well.
