    Heads up.



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Paid a half dozen visits to our local Homebase store which is closing down and to be replaced by B&M which holds the lease. As we are renovating we were in the market for hardware, decorating supplies, lighting, building supplies and various tools. I wouldn't normally visit any DIY store like Homebase, B&Q etc but was tempted by the 40% off offer, then further tempted by 50% off and then 80% off and until the final day yesterday - 90% off. Some items had just a nominal charge to clear.
    In total we spent 289.86p but saved 746.71. Bargain of the day was 4.5 sq mtr of marble floor tiles for 3.

    Homebase are closing all the following stores.

    Here is a full list of the stores affected:

    Aberdeen Bridge of Don
    Aberdeen Portlethen
    Aylesbury
    Bedford St Johns
    Bradford
    Brentford
    Bristol
    Canterbury
    Cardiff Newport Road
    Croydon Purley Way
    Droitwich
    Dublin Fonthill
    Dublin Naas Road
    Dundee
    East Kilbride
    Exeter
    Gateshead
    Grantham
    Greenock
    Hawick
    Inverness
    Ipswich
    Limerick
    London Merton
    London New Southgate
    London Wimbledon
    Macclesfield
    Oxford Botley Road
    Peterborough
    Pollokshaws
    Poole Tower Park
    Robroyston
    Salisbury
    Seven Kings
    Solihull
    Southampton Hedge End
    Southend
    Stirling
    Swindon Drakes Way
    Swindon Orbital
    Warrington
    Whitby

    The closer to closure the higher percentage off but stock gets very much reduced.

    Got gallons of ronseal fence paint and lots of big planters when our local Homebase closed and saved a fortune. Even bought two fake Christmas trees because they were that cheap.

    Only a memory
    Any chance of you picking up a cheap set of safety rails for your manhole, before we get back.?
    When we converted the hovel, 13 years ago,
    The Portuguese builder took us to choose bathroom tiles. Next door was a Lidl.
    We popped in for some fresh milk and nd noticed they had a special promotion on bathroom fittings. We dragged him inside and bought the whole range of fittings.
    Good quality German stuff, in those days. Exactly what we wanted, at silly money. And it's still looking good.
    He wasn't too chuffed, he'd lost out on his mark up.
    It's not where you live... It's HOW you live..

    look, we've dispensed with the cover!
