Homebase Announces Plans to Reopen 20 Stores

Homebase Selly Oak Front

A message from Homebase

In March, Homebase was classified as an essential retailer by the Government, meaning that our stores could continue trading. However, with the safety of our customers and teams as our first priority, we took the decision to temporarily close our stores and operate online only.

We have taken this time to carefully review and make a large number of changes to our operations in preparation for a safe, phased reopening, in line with Government guidance on social distancing. 

On Saturday 25th April, we will be trialling the opening of 20 stores*, with strict controls in place to ensure shopping is safe for everyone. Our remaining stores in the UK will continue to offer a collection and counter service.

I want to say a massive thank you again to our teams right across the country who have been working so hard during this challenging time, and to our customers for the huge support and understanding shown by so many.

The following stores will be open 10am to 5pm Monday to Saturday, and 10am to 4pm on Sunday (Edinburgh and Hamilton 10am to 5pm on Sunday).
