Homebase has opened the doors of its new store in Abingdon. Located on Marcham Road, the new 23,830sq ft store is described as the 'one-stop-shop' for the products, expertise and inspiration customers need to fix, improve or transform their homes and gardens. Following the successful roll-out of new stores in Walton-on-Thames and Cheltenham, the company says it hopes the store will inspire customers to give home and garden projects a go.
The new store has created 29 jobs in the local area and these team members have been provided with externally accredited training, including City & Guilds gardening and kitchen design qualifications, to help customers create the homes and gardens they want.
There’s a variety of kitchen and Bathstore bathroom designs on show, including the exclusive House Beautiful and Country Living kitchens, and appliances from brands including Bosch, Neff and Miele. Expert advice is on hand from Homebase’s team members who, the company says, can turn customers’ design ideas into a reality through free design consultations, using Homebase’s 3D visualisation software.
Grant Anderson, Homebase retail director, commented: “I’m really excited that we’re back in Abingdon and our fantastic store team is ready to help the local community create homes and gardens they love.
“I know our customers will be surprised by how inspirational our new store is. It’s designed to make shopping with us easier, from clever QR codes that bring our products to life to our slick Order and Collect service.”
