Salisbury Homebase closing today

Homebase Southampton Road Salisbury

Published by Ellie Harries at 5:33am 7th December 2018.

The retailer has been shutting stores across the country and our one on Southampton Road is going.

Today (Friday 7th December) is the final day of trading for Homebase.

Spire FM revealed in August that the Southampton Road store was on the list of 42 branches of the DIY chain to be shutting.

The retailer is closing the stores via a Company Voluntary Agreement (CVA), a controversial insolvency procedure used by struggling firms to shut under-performing shops.

The CVA mechanism has already been used by retailers including Carpetright, Mothercare and New Look this year.

It will close its doors at 8.00pm tonight.

NEW STORE GOING INTO THE SALISBURY BUILDING

The Range has put in a planning application to go into the Homebase store.

The homeware store have been around since 1989 and say they stock more than 65,000 products.

They have 16 different departments from furniture to DIY to art supplies.

The nearest stores to us at the moment are Bournemouth, Southampton and Andover.
