Since 2 May, Homebase has now reopened all of its 164 stores across the UK.
The reopening happened in stages, which initially began with a trial of 20 stores opening their doors again, with social distancing measures in place.
After the initial success, 50 more shops opened around the country on 29 April.
The stores have opened with “strict controls” in place, according to the retailer, to ensure the safety of staff and customers. These include card payments only, perspex screens at tills and social distance markers on the floor.
Some services, including key cutting, kitchen design appointments, reserve and collect and hiring carpet cleaners will not be available yet.
The opening times will be between 10am-5pm Monday to Saturday, and 10am-4pm Sunday, but some branches may differ, so make sure you check its online store finder before you make a visit.
Similarly to Wickes, Homebase had initially shut all of its stores in March, with only its website continuing to run with home delivery and reserve and collect options available.
Due to the high demand, Homebase has temporarily stopped its reserve and collect service.
