B&Q Swallwell (Gateshead) branch closing down

Found 3rd Jan 2015
B&Q Swallwell is closing down and as advertised 'everything must go'

I bought some tools and a fire at 15% off.

From what I saw this is a genuine sale as if not mark on item the discount is added at the till.

do you mean Branch

Great. I'll pop in tomorrow to see if anything catches my eye.

15% discount isn't really that great though?!

Given how much they mark up their goods 15% off still makes them overpriced!

Ashington is closing down as well. Same offer on there...

That's probably the start, it will be stepped discounts to wind down the closure. There's always going to be someone willing to pay more than you, are you willing to wait for a big enough discount when there's very little worth having.

Not surprised it's closing down if that's a picture of it! It looks like the most depressing run down shop ever.

or maybe that's just Gateshead in general?

Like the majority of small B&Qs, no money spent on them since they moved to the up scaled versions years go.

Gateshead a big place
This is probably 4 miles from Gateshead, far nearer (perhaps 0.5 mile) from the Metrocentre (was Europes largest out of town shopping centre if not now).
Still if you don't get the bargain DIY item you want at this B&Q you've got the cheap shoe shop on tbe opposite side of the small run down car park for a pair of shoes/boots/wellies/trainers/bags/accessories

I would wait the one in Preston closes in 2 weeks most items are 50% off with some 60% and the lowest marked down items like silicones and brushes, wallpaper paste are 25% to 30% now, I've bought loads of things at 50% off like wallpaper, locks, weed killer, plumbing stuff, outdoor paint the Sioux stuff and some bits and bobs at 50% off.

It's swalwell and it's as grim!

Usually closing down sales have 75% discount on all items.

You might need a boat to get to that entrance

which B&Q in Preston is closing down

Even though this is a relatively rubbish deal, at less the OP has advised people it's closing down!

As for the area, I fail to see what it matters if the area is desirable or not - you're shopping in B&Q solely, not living there!

Do you live there ?
I'm sure I've seen a Nuggetpuller in the Highlander .

15% doesn't seem much to me

Surprised it hasn't closed earlier, due to the larger store at Scotswood being just up the road.
Heads up appreciated OP.

SWALWELL STORE IS A GREAT STORE AND THE STAFF ARE THE MOST HELPFUL AND PASSIONATE SO WHY DON.,T YOU CHECK IT OUT MR FIREMAN YOU DON,T HAVE TO SHOP THERE DO YOU?
