Homebase opens first new large store in six years
Homebase has chosen Cheltenham for the opening of its first new large store in six years.
The move follows the successful launch of three small format stores in Surrey.
Situated on Tewkesbury Road, the 36,591 square foot shop will offer customers gardening and DIY products as well as furniture, home accessories, kitchens, bathroom, flooring and tiles.
In addition, the store features a Dulux Paint Desk which offers a paint mixing service and also sells paint from Homebase, Crown, Farrow & Ball, ELLE Decoration and Craig & Rose. The shop will also stock House Beautiful and Country Living wallpaper, furniture and home accessories as part of Homebase’s partnership with publisher Hearst UK.
Meanwhile, the 12,500 square foot garden centre will offer a range of plants, pots, garden care products, outdoor furniture, spas and barbecues.
Homebase previously operated two stores in Cheltenham between 1993 and 2019.
Grant Anderson, Homebase retail director, said: “I’m really proud that we’re returning to Cheltenham and our brilliant store team is ready to welcome customers old and new, bringing them the products, style and advice they need to complete any home or garden project.
“This store looks completely different to those we’ve had in the town in the past – it’s designed to make shopping with us easier than ever. From clever QR codes that show customers how to recreate the look in their own homes to the helpful advice our team can offer, we’re ready to inspire the local community.”
