The Biggest Project of its Kind in 2018

RMS played a key role in delivering Boots Sweetshop, Europe’s largest cosmetics project in 2018.  The project was centred around a refresh of the cosmetics self-selection area, giving the customer an enhanced shopping experience and the ability to pick and mix their beauty products in an area that was inviting and cutting edge.  These stands have a clean, fresh look with each cosmetics brand having a unique area within the layout of the store from 1 to 6 modules dependant on the footprint of the store.

“RMS have been instrumental in creating a pleasant and productive work environment and they’re the most talented team that I have ever worked with, a real asset to the entire project.  We wouldn’t have made it this far without their tenacity driving the project forward…they really do understand the ethos of the Sweetshop project and have been a pleasure to work with.”
