B&Q's New-Format Store In Merton Is Open For Business

B&Q, the UK’s leading home improvement retailer, has today launched its new convenience store in the Nelson Industrial Estate with a morning of celebrations, giveaways and special guests.

Radio Jackie presenter Eddie Castle kicked off the celebrations at 8am with special promotions and competitions across the store, including the opportunity to win gift cards up to the value of £100.

The B&Q Merton team were joined by Deen City Farm, the local community farm that won the store’s community champion competition earlier this month. The charity works to educate about the local environment and where food comes through school visits and holiday schemes.

Deen City Farm has been working to upgrade its baby change and breastfeeding room, currently through self-sourcing and upcycling materials. The farm’s Caretaker, Richard Hogan, has undertaken much of this work in his own time. To highlight the incredible work the charity has been doing across Merton, B&Q donated a £500 gift card towards the project and invited them to cut the ribbon at its opening celebration.

Greg Gluchy, Unit Manager at B&Q Merton said: “We had a great morning celebrating the opening with our team and the local community. It was the perfect opportunity to get to know some of our customers and reveal some of the amazing products we have in store, as well as provide inspiration for their restoration projects.

“Throughout the event the Radio Jackie team gave away £500 worth of gift cards to lots of happy customers and we were really pleased to be joined by our new charity champion, Deen City Farm, to help us cut the ribbon and officially open the store. They do a wonderful job in Merton and we can’t wait to see the results of their renovated baby change and breastfeeding room. We look forward to welcoming more people to our store over the coming weeks and hope to see you soon!”

The team of 25 colleagues is on hand to support customers with all their DIY needs. As well as helping to plan larger projects like kitchens and bathrooms, they can provide advice on completing home renovation projects – from the tools and products needed, to getting guidance and inspiration from B&Q.

The 13,000 sq. ft space provides a compact, modern and fresh store for customers to explore over 6,000 products, with an additional 40,000 products available for home delivery or click and collect (many from next day). The showroom features B&Q’s latest kitchen, bathroom, tiling and flooring ranges; there’s a paint mixing service and a great range of brands available; all of your DIY tools and essentials are stocked; and the indoor and outdoor plants will help bring the outdoors into your home.

The store offers the same benefits of B&Q Club and TradePoint membership to Merton customers. The B&Q Club is open to all customers, while trade customers can join the TradePoint scheme, which offers free membership and exclusive discounts to trade professionals.

The new B&Q Merton store is located at Nelson Industrial Estate, The Path, South Wimbledon, London, SW19 3BL and will be open Monday-Saturday, 7am-8pm, and on Sunday, 10am-4pm.
