Homebase has returned to Coventry with a new store on the Gallagher Retail Park.

 

The new 30,000 sq. ft store is the one-stop-shop for the products, expertise and inspiration customers need to fix, improve or transform their homes and gardens.

The new store has created 30 jobs in the local area and includes four team members with over thirty years of experience at Homebase. All team members have been provided with externally accredited training, including City & Guilds gardening and kitchen design qualifications, to help customers create homes and gardens they love.

For those looking to redecorate, the store features a Dulux Paint Desk, which offers a paint mixing service, and popular brands including Homebase Paint, Crown, Farrow & Ball, Laura Ashley, ELLE Decoration and Craig & Rose. Customers can also transform their kitchen units, tiles, flooring and radiators with the Maison Deco range.

The interior trend that’s showing no signs of slowing down, wall panelling, can be taken away ready-made and helpful room sets show off the finished design and make it easy to find tips and advice. There’s a wide range of tools and hardware to make any DIY task simple too. Customers will also find plenty of flooring and tiling options to complete any home project.

House Beautiful and Country Living furniture and home accessories are available in-store, as part of Homebase’s partnership with leading premium content and experience business, Hearst UK.

There’s a variety of kitchen and Bathstore bathroom designs on show, including the exclusive House Beautiful and Country Living kitchens and House Beautiful bathroom furniture, and features high-quality appliances from brands including Bosch, Neff and Miele. Expert advice is on hand from Homebase’s team members who can turn customers’ design ideas into a reality through free design consultations, using Homebase’s state-of-the-art visualisation software.

Spring has arrived in-store and in the 10,000 sq. ft garden centre* has all the garden furniture, outdoor décor, plants, pots, outdoor storage and garden care customers need to transform their gardens. Customers can also buy pollinator friendly seeds, known for providing much-needed food and habitats for wildlife. Nest boxes have been installed in a bid to boost biodiversity and are available to purchase in-store.

'Order and Collect' is also available, making it even easier for customers to buy products from Homebase’s full range of more than 35,000 products, either online for pick up in-store within the hour or order in-store for home delivery. 

Grant Anderson, Homebase Retail Director, comments: “We’re proud to be opening another new store. Even better, we’re returning to a local community that we know well, and our fantastic team is ready to help customers with home and garden projects big or small.

“Customers will be surprised by how different this store is – there’s inspiration wherever you look. We’ve introduced creative room sets and QR codes to bring our products to life and, most importantly, made it easier to shop.”

Homebase previously had a store nearby, in Canley, which closed in 2020.
