Pretty typical homebase store, entry of parking out the front which is handy. The store is having a closing down sale on writing this, which was when I visited also. This tempted us to go see if there are any bargains to be had, although, due to Homebase beimg pricey, even with a sale, most things were still cheaper elsewhere. Worth a visit if you are local suppose, but not worth a long journey. Many things are literally a saving of pence, the least exciting closing down sale I've experienced personally. Very few plants left, but lots of electrical, garden and decorating stuff, unsurprising, hence the prices.
You can get everything here apart from the kitchen sink! N.b Kitchen sinks are on aisle 23

It is a big B&Q so no surprises here - except this is the first place I have been to where they clearly don't want anyone in anything bigger than a small car! They have installed a chicane made of very solid and big metal bollards which you have to manoeuvre found to get into the car park. I consider myself to be a reasonably adept driver but i have a long car and It is a heart in mouth job every time I enter. To the extent that, if I can, I now avoid this place. I have no doubt that it is a measure to foil travellers, but they impact on everyone else!
Fancy looking for something you put in the garden in the garden section and then asking an employee for help! Very rude staff, basically told me I should know where all the stock is and it was obviously in the household goods... Which they weren't anyway! Luckily the young guy on the tills was far more friendly and helpful. So, stay away from the miserable old guy...

Appreciating the fan I bought from Homebase! Have it in my shop - can put ice or water in it :) Always helpful staff there.
Visited the streatham store today and was surprised that customer service does exist! I was served by a young lady that was not only polite. courteious and smiley she took an interest in my purchase and asked me questions regarding my decoration needs. I very rarely write reviews but I believe this young lady deserves recognition for her manners and personal touch. I will definitely return to the store just for the service Van has provided.Even though the uniform is horrendous!
