Homebase targets Coventry store for possible closure

Published: 31 March 2014
One of Homebase's two stores in Coventry is the latest to be threatened with the axe as the retailer presses ahead with its programme of closures.
Homebase is now in consultation with the 40 staff at the Walsgrave outlet, to the north of Coventry, who will lose their jobs if the shut-down goes ahead. The expiry of the company's lease on the building this summer has prompted the plan.

In a statement Homebase said: "Homebase can confirm that the business has entered a period of consultation concerning the proposed closure of our store in Walsgrave, Coventry, where the lease is due to expire.

"Colleagues at the store have been informed and we will be working with them to support them as much as possible.

"A decision will be made over the next few weeks and, if the store is closed, discussions will be held with colleagues to identify alternative employment opportunities within Homebase and our sister company Argos.

"Due to commercial sensitivities, we are unable to comment further at this time."
