Homebase reopens 20 stores

DIY retailer Homebase has revealed it has reopened 20 of its stores across the UK after it was deemed an essential service.

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

Following a “careful review” and a “large number of changes” to its operations in preparation for phased reopening it revealed it trialled a reopening of 20 stores over the weekend, “with strict controls in place” to ensure safe shopping. 

Damian McGloughlin, CEO, said: “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.” 

Homebase also said that its remaining stores in the UK will continue to offer a collection and counter service.
