Homebase Llanishen Closing Down

Homebase Llanishen will be closing down this summer, with discounting at the store starting tomorrow.

Homebase, which announced 42 store closures last year as part of a company voluntary arrangement (CVA) struck with creditors, has used a break clause on the lease, with dozens of jobs set to go.

No doubt this news has come as a shock for workers at the store and it’s vital that Homebase helps all affected staff find new work over the coming months.

There are rumours that a house builder has purchased the site and are set to submit a planning application in due course.

I’ll keep you posted.

UPDATE (NOV 2019): The rumour about a house builder purchasing the site doesn’t appear to have come to fruition and the site is now home to a B&M Bargains.
