No great loss, was always seriously overpriced.
50% off has probably brought them down to normal prices now.

Dunno CreepingDeath, Homebase is generally a good bit cheaper than Woodies / Atlantic. Had some serious bargains on plants there over the years too.

Shop was always quiet though, I'd say they made a loss from day 1...

Does anyone know if you can return reduced items bought in the font hill homebase? Bought two things last week; ones broken and I didn't realise I already had the other!

they told me at point of sale that i had up until saturday to return everything. I didnt make it up so rang Homebase in Gullivers retail park on sunday and asked and they initially said No, i couldnt return my items to their branch, then after I explained the receipt didnt mention this anywhere, they said it was fine.

and when i went to do the refund, the sales assistant didnt actually comment at all.

was there 2 days ago and there was not a lot left at all. the second floor of teh shop was closed and all remaining stock was on the near empty shelves and on pallets on the floor.

There was some shower equipment left but I didn't take too much notice.
If you are looking for something very specific I think you would be lucky to get it at this stage.

I see Fonthill is to remain open, did it close last week and is it to reopen ? I presume most of the stock was sold off in the closing down sale!
