B&Q opens its largest store in over a decade

B&Q has opened one of its largest stores in the ten years in Colchester.

The store was declared officially open today with a formal cutting of the ribbon by the Mayor of Colchester, Councillor Robert Davidson.

Relocated from B&Q Lightship Way to Stane Park’s brand-new retail park, B&Q is the first to open at the new development.

The new store combines instore shopping missions with digital fulfilment, fully representing the home and DIY retailer’s commitment to grow e-commerce with stores at the centre.

B&Q Stane Park store manager Caroline Voutsinas said: “DIY has really captured the imagination of the nation over the past 18-months, so our new and improved B&Q in Colchester is very timely, giving Colchester DIY-ers and tradespeople a much improved store experience with plenty of exciting new features to make home improvement easier than ever. I cannot wait to welcome the local community into the store.”

The new store offers a range of products for home improvement needs, as well as a purpose-built garden centre with a dedicated garden showroom.

The store will also feature a brand-new showroom featuring the latest kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms in interactive, inspirational displays and a brand new ‘shop in a shop’ for workwear, a first for B&Q.

A digital hub to support store to home delivery can also be found instore which will include services such as paint mixing and Click + Collect via diy.com.
