“not worth a visit !”

published 16/08/2000

Pronone

Consall above

If you fancy a spot of DIY and are looking for a good place to shop then forget Homebase . I found it very expensive and the staff very unhelpful. You walk in and the first thing you find is that everything is crammed into such a small space that you have a job negotiating the trolly around them...

Having been a DIY'er for over 30 years, I have visited stores from many groups. I'm afraid I could not recommend Homebase as one which I would use from choice. I found the product range limited and the prices on the expensive side. I felt that, as Homebase is part of Sainsbury's, they were aiming...

ConsNone

Similar to previous authors of opinions re Homebase I have recently bought my own house and have had many occasions to take a necessary drive to the nearest (not necessarily the cheapest) home and garden centre. Mine happens to be Homebase. However, I'm not at all organised and would often find...

Conssold out of certain products at times

A couple of miles down the road is our local homebase store that is worth a visit. A large car park out side where you can normally get a car parking space without any trouble inside the store is great with many different items to choose from. There are about twenty isles stacked with almost...

ConsNot enough staff

I went into Homebase the other day to buy a drill, for some DIY jobs around the home. Previously I had visited all the other various DIY shops just to compare prices and get advice on what sort of drill I would need for my various tasks. To cut a long story short I couldn't find anyone to talk to...

“DI-Why-oh-why”

ProYou have to get DIY stuff somewhere

ConsNo advice or customer service

Ah Homebase... there's one of the little green fellas not too far away from you, no matter where you are. I have suddenly had much call to visit DIY superstores of all shapes and sizes. This is due to purchasing a flat with my wifee to be. She asks for little, just a complete redecoration job :-)...

“Homebase”

published 06/09/2000

ProLots of choice for DIY enthusiasts

ConsSome things are expensive

After just moving house I have found that Homebase is really good for all the DIY stuff you need.I love DIY and would spend a day in Homebase if I had the money. The homebase near us is big with lots of choice and (some) helpful staff. It sells things from paint to garden furniture and some...

ProExtensive range of products

ConsBetter value will be found elsewhere

I have to say I have given up with Homebase. I have one of their loyalty cards and my latest statement indicates I have not been at all for about 6 months. When you consider the amount of DIY and gardening I do this does seem to suggest Homebase is not meeting my needs. Homebase was established...

“Homebase”

published 29/06/2010

ProGood prices and a wide range of products

ConsNone apart from our local cashiers

Since buying my house just over a year ago I seem to have spent an increasing amount of time in Homebase, I have always be familiar with Homebase due to my parents often visiting our local store at weekends. Some people seem to moan a bit about Homebase but I have personally found that as far as...

ConsSome problems with orders

I have worked in Homebase for nearly 6 years since the age 16. The more I think about it, the more Homebase becomes comparable to Marmite. You either love it or you hate it. These views are my experiance of Homebase in my time working there. I will be a bit biased but i'll do my best not to. I'll...

ConsTheir ordering service is shockingly poor

Homebase is a shop I used to love. However, previous events have meant that my opinion of them has dropped a lot! Homebase is a DIY shop that sells pretty much everything, from wood and power tools to garden furniture and plants. Homebase also sells more 'homey' products such as vases, candles...

I would just like to write a review of my local Homebase store, after having visited it to purchase a work top for the kitchen a while ago. As with all of my reviews, I must add that these views are only my own and you may have either the same or different to me on this particular shop. In this...

Okay, I admit it, letting me near power tools or DIY equipment is really asking for trouble. Unfortunately I have no choice, having just bought a new house, it goes part and parcel. Not having any tools (or any idea – did I mention that??) I thought somewhere like Homebase would be perfect...
