Which Wickes and Homebase stores have reopened?

DIY retailers Wickes and Homebase have announced they will be reopening some of their stores across the UK, following in the footsteps of B&Q, which reopened most of its stores earlier this week.

The stores have been classed as essential businesses by the government as they stock items that help keep homes warm, safe and accessible to power.

From 14 May, Wickes will be reopening 106 stores across the UK, following a successful trial run of six stores that were reopened on 30 April.

The remaining 108 stores will open on Tuesday 19 May.

It had previously shut all of its shops in March but continued offering home delivery for its customers via its websites.

But, due to the increased demand, delivery times have been delayed and there has been on average a 15-minute wait to enter the website.
