DIY retailer to reopen all stores following trial
By Sarah Wood | 30th April 2020
Homebase will reopen all of its stores this weekend (May 2), after a successful trial.
The retailer, which has stores in Gloucester and Stroud, initially opened 20 stores as a trial last weekend and opened another 50 yesterday, as reported by Retail Gazette.
Homebase shut all of its stores in March, following the government's lockdown announcement.
But as it is classified as providing an essential service, it could have opted to remain open throughout.
The DIY retailer said all stores will have strict controls to ensure shopping is safe and follows government guidance on social distancing.
Homebase had continued to offer a click-and-collect service for customers during lockdown.
