Homebase to use six 'clearance' stores to shift dead stock

Homebase Clearance Outlet - Bristol

In a move designed to tidy up the Homebase estate and absorb stock from the planned closures, news has reached the Insight DIY offices this afternoon that Homebase have identified six current Homebase stores that they intend to use as clearance outlets.

The stores located in Bournemouth, New Southgate, Peterborough, Bristol, Warrington and Greenock will operate outside of the rest of the Homebase estate and will not offer special order kitchens, bathrooms, local delivery service, paint mixing or hire shop.

In the recent announcement to the Australian Stock Exchange Wesfarmers confirmed that there would be a number of significant items in the Half Year Results announcement due tomorrow. This included stock write-downs of £37 million, relating to excess, unsuitable and display stock. It is this stock, which we believe will be moved to the clearance stores to provide a better shopping experience in the reminder of the Homebase stores.
