Homebase is one of Britain’s largest and best-known home and garden improvement stores with well over 300 stores across the UK.
Originally a spinoff funded by supermarket chain Sainsbury’s in the late 1970s, Homebase grew to become prosperous in the face of continued governmental regulation of housing. A popular choice nationwide for those wishing to spruce up their properties. After several successful mergers, the firm is now part of the same conglomerate as catalogue retailer Argos.
Employing over 17,000 people, Homebase today is an established longtime player within the expansive home improvement market.
