Local to me, Easily accessible

Lack of stock consistency between stores

Having moved into our first house a year ago we were struck with the inclination to do something to it. A house that looked good on the surface gradually transformed into some sort of monster that needed a lot of work to make it to our tastes. Coupled with the fact that the previous owner could...

“Serendipity”

published 14/05/2001

Diversification successfully abounds.

Go for a shelf and come out with a rabbit.

Let us imagine a wet and miserable afternoon. A visit to the Garden Centre was not a viable option nor was gardening in our little patch, come to that. A case of miserable lethargy set in. It looked as though HE would have to do THAT job which had awaited doing for some time. HE couldn’t...

“my ninety eight pound shed”

published 16/03/2001

cheap and cheerful, easy to erect

costly delivery charge

I've been looking for a cheap and cheerful garden shed costing under £100.00 for the past year and have at last taken delivery today of this much sought after item from the Do It All D.I.Y chain. It's a very basic six foot by four foot creation with a felt roof, panoramic window and nice little...

“Do it all or not do it all”

offers

offers ell out quickly

Do it all, or Focus, which is the other name it trades under is a large DIY centre. My local one is at High Wycombe, but does it Do It All??? No. It does do quite a lot but there are occassions when it fails to stock it's offers. These offers can be good value, and I assume that they are loss...

Orders not prioritized

I had recently bought a new kitchen and required some tiles. After shopping around the local tile merchants I found the tile I wanted. I then visited my local Focus DIY store where to my surprise I found the same tiles for a fraction of the price. The only thing was they were out of stock. I...

The fact is, WHS Do It All was a failing business, slowly its stores were being bought by Focus DIY, a private company, at a bargain basement price. What has this done for the new merged company? Its turned a worse for wear has been and an up and coming cheap and cheerful chain into a so-so...

“Shop around”

published 18/08/2007

Some products are of better quality than rivals

Alot more expensive than rivals

Now, i'm not saying don't shop at Focus, but they are extremely EXPENSIVE. If you compare them to B&Q (who are also not cheap) their prices are sky high. I often buy sheet materials and timber. When I went to buy them from Focus, they are about £2 more than B&Q. This may not sound alot, but when...

“Banister Systems”

Looks Good

Time

I picked up a brochure from our local Focus Do It All store, but I noticed that B & Q stock parts as well. I found the brochure very informative and it enabled me to cost out the project, and decide on the wood and style. Still they assume you have a lower newel base, so I was still stuck. On the...

“Do not do it with Do it All”

published 31/03/2001

Some good offers, stores cover most of the UK

Choice, Pricing

I have been to Do-it-all several times and I think they are far more expensive then general suppliers like Jewsons or even other DIY-Stores like B&Q or Great Mills. Even Homebase who is still owned by Sainsbury is cheaper. I also find that Do-it-all has not got the choice as the other stores...
