    The Doncaster and Lincoln branches both closed earlier this year.  No more custom from me (they were the branches that were convenient).

    Our local Homebase has only been Homebase in name for some time, it now calls itself a Clearance Outlet. No plants, only the garden stuff that has yet to be sold and great heaps of 'stuff' at presumably clearance prices.

    I do like my local branch - good people. St Albans are advertising vacancies.

    Ours, St Albans, became Bunnings and then went back again to Homebase! All the cost of rembranding, re-emplyment, store redesign...... management!
