Review of "Focus / Do It All (Shop)"
I used to shop at Do-It-All, now renamed Focus, and in those days (I’m going back around 10 years) it seemed to be one of the best DIY superstores.
Well, things have moved on since then – we have B&Q warehouses, with immense stocks, and the smaller, pound shops, are starting to stock up on the ever-so-cheap, ironmongery items.
… and I’m really not so sure that Focus is a shop I need to use at all anymore.
I called in today, basically looking for a few small items – including a specific size of nails, and some brackets – and I came away with nothing. They either didn’t have what I wanted, or what they did have was very expensive compared to the other shops I’ve been into recently.
I love the B&Q warehouse – and there’s no way Focus can compare with that.
I also love Wilkinsons (for hardware, and smaller household goods, it can’t be beaten, in my opinion). I also have a lot of time for Homebase. Which, on the face of it, is similar to Focus, but I still find Focus doesn’t come close.
Yes, I’ll still take a look in Focus if I’m looking for something different, and don’t like the ranges in other shops. But it’s really going to be a last resort for me now – it really doesn’t compete with the others.
