Borders folk - Homebase closing - Hawick

Recommended Posts

I was in Hawick this week and Homebase there is closing down.  They have 10-50% off everything - it seems it all has to go.  They are not closing til Christmas apparently, but I doubt there will be much left by then.

Bugger off @Onoff!This one's mine!:P

 

TBH, I've often found them over-priced and even with their 10% off most items are still more expensive than the likes of Screwfix. Car park's never had so many cars in there though! Suspect there's a lot of people going in there thinking they're walking out with a bargain when TS and SF (500m) up the road have it all for 20% cheaper! There's only a couple of aisles that have 50% off and that's screws/fixings, door ironmongery and smoke alarms. And again, you have to watch out what you are buying - some of the smoke detectors they are flogging are a "do not buy" from Which?  !!  And yes, I did only find that out after buying one (I'll be sticking that in the shed or flogging it to the MIL with a 50% markup!:D

 

I'll be going back every week to see the % discount increase on the other aisles, so let me know @Onoff if you are after anything in particular!:ph34r:

The Wick branch closed earlier this year. Only useful thing I picked up was a reciprocating saw (Bosch, IIRC - not something I'm expecting to use a lot, only used it once so far but that was a 30 metre cut) at half price. Frustrating that there was a lot of stuff which was almost useful but not quite what I wanted. Big pile of 18mm OSB3 I didn't think I needed then decided a week later that I did, went back and all gone of course. Still, it was only £6/sheet cheaper than my usual timber merchant.

Ta. A bit of a trek for me. It'd cost me the saving I'd make in petrol! :)

 

Best deals I had was when Focus / Do It All at Sevenoaks became Wickes. It was 50% off then a week later another 50% off that. Got a Champion 18V cordless circular saw with two batteries for £20 something. A 230V "Dremel" again by Champion for about £7 from memory. Both still going strong. The nephew has a nose for a bargain with Homebase. When the Australians bought them and changed the cheapo power tool brand to I think Ozito, he picked up a 9" grinder for I think £13.
