Homebase opens second dedicated kitchen and bathroom store

Home and DIY giant Homebase is to open three small-format stores in Walton-on-Thames in Surrey.

Homebase already has a Bathstore showroom on New Zealand Avenue in Walton-on-Thames and is planning to refresh that store and add a Kitchens by Homebase area.

This is the second Bathstore branch to gain a Kitchens by Homebase area, following the successful launch of the concept in Guildford earlier this year.

Homebase acquired Bathstore in July 2019 after it was placed into administration and took control of 44 of its 135 stores.

The company also owns the unit next to the Bathstore premises and is planning to turn this into a Decorate by Homebase store. This site will also house Homebase’s first ever pop-up store. Homebase currently has Decorate by Homebase stores in Cheadle and Sutton.

The Decorate by Homebase stores are dedicated to providing everything needed for a home decorating project.

The company said: “The new format allows customers to seek inspiration in one place and purchase everything they need to complete their decorating projects. Whether its expert advice or DIY essentials, there will be something useful to help the entire process.”
