Big ticket sales helped with the sales boost, according to Homebase bosses, who said there had been growth “across all product categories.” The directors also pointed out that on a like-for-like basis the increase was 13% for sales as one store closed during the previous year.

The business also benefitted during the period from the reversal of a lease provision which ended up representing an exceptional gain of €1.74m. Pre-tax losses for the year reduced by 73% to €2.4m, a significant improvement on the previous year's €9m figure.

There are currently 11 Homebase stores in Ireland, four of which are in Dublin. A total of 448 employees work there.
