B&Q opens at Liverpool Shopping Park

B&Q Liverpool Shopping Park

Friday 23 June saw the launch of B&Q’s brand new Liverpool Shopping Park store, giving its customers an upgraded shopping experience, broader product offer and additional home improvement services.

The new store is a relocation from the B&Q Edge Lane store, which closed its doors for the last time last night. This seamless transfer will now provide the local community with a bigger, brighter, and more enhanced home improvement and trade offer.

The 49,000 sqft store is one of the first B&Qs in the country to feature a new layout and refreshed departments. As part of the project LED lighting has been installed to brighten the whole space and reduce the overall impact of the store on the environment.

The new-look store includes:

  • New products across the store
  • New services (Click + Collect, Key Cutting, Free Wifi)
  • New TradePoint shop
  • New paint desk and improved paint mixing service
  • New lighting shop
  • New tiling and flooring shop
  • New kitchen and bathroom showroom
  • New tool shop
  • New seasonal displays and products 

Paul Tym, Unit Manager of B&Q Liverpool Shopping Park says: “The store is bigger, brighter and better than ever. Everything has seen an improvement from the Edge Lane store. We now have a full range of B&Q products and services: from kitchens and bathrooms, to paint and homewares, as well as tools and building materials - everything needed to create, maintain and enjoy your home and garden. The whole team are excited about the move and we look forward to welcoming our customers to our new home!”.

At the opening itself, the team at B&Q Liverpool Shopping Park were given an extra helping-hand from the pupils of St. Oswald’s Junior School, who put the finishing-touches to the project by helping set up and water the bee-friendly plants in the store’s Garden Centre.

Commenting on this Paul Tym said, “We are absolutely committed to our local customers and the community in which they live, so it was great to get the local school involved with the opening. And what a great job they did, I think we might have some future horticulturist here with us today!”

Lynsey Duncan, a teacher at St Oswald’s Primary School said, “It’s fantastic to see the children getting involved with something that’s such a big part of our community. Hopefully this is just the beginning of our partnership with B&Q.”

To continue the celebrations, B&Q Liverpool Shopping Park hosted a free family fun day on Saturday 24 June 2017, with guest appearances from Ben & Holly fromBen & Holly’s Little Kingdom.
