It depends what you’re after but definitely think you’ll find something to make it worth your time if you live within 5 miles or so!

Agreed, the consumer will be poorer once amazon hike their prices
Big shame for everyone losing their jobs and the other local implications.

It has to be said, Homebase has long been well overpriced, generally poor quality (own brand stuff) and visiting their stores is a bit of depressing experience.

They closed a lot of stores a year or two ago. Shame they've not managed to turn things around.

Just a heads up, even at 20% off they're probably still more expensive than many other places.

It's been a loss making business, hence why Sainsbury's only bought Argos. And also because Argos has amazing logistics in place.

Homebase is no longer "loss making", it returned to profit early this year, also Sainsburys had no option to buy it because it had already been sold to Wesfarmers in February 2016, before the deal with Sainsburys was agreed in April that year.

My understanding is that the negotiations for Sainsburys to take over Home Retail Group stopped because they couldn't agree on the price HRG wanted for the Homebase part of the business.

As soon as HRG offloaded Homebase to Wesfarmers, the deal was back on.

Read in to it what you will, but I would suggest JS really didn't want Homebase back (they had started the chain and sold it to HRG/Argos in the early 00s).

But it was originally a loss making part of the Argos and Homebase group. As far as I'm aware, Sainsbury's wanted to buy Argos only and hence Argos and Homebase was split up and sold off separately. I'm sure this was in the Pipeworks, when deals are agreed they become public knowledge for the markets when everything has been signed, so this has been in the works for a long time coming.
