    A total shambles of a company. Edinburgh had 3 stores now 1 store. A third of the floor space is on an upper floor where it houses the bathrooms and kitchens which have been taken off sale for the last 4 months.
    The stuffs just been left there on display but not for sale?

    Got my name on some exdisplay bathrooms . Just waiting for them to figure out what they want to charge for them.

    Total Shamles. But on a brighter note got some real bargains there the last few weeks saving hundreds of pounds

    A close neighbour/friend of ours worked at their (previously Homebase) head office in a senior role and thought they were "dreadfull, had an awfull management style and didn't have a clue" resigned and moved elsewhere as soon as they could.

    That sounds like Bishopbriggs... or probably any retail park around the UK!

    This is what happens if you buy without proper due diligence!

    It's good to note however that the stores that have already changed to Bunnings have experienced a better performance. I'm hoping this is due to selling their own branded stuff and not the Homebase rubbish with a different label...

    Our homebase is now a clearance outlet. Everything is 30% off except power tools and lawnmowers which are only 10%. I want a lawnmower but 10% isn't much of an incentive. I'm sure any spring sale would beat that.
