Guildford Homebase store to close

Published at 10:53am 15th May 2019.

The Homebase store in Guildford is set to close.

A spokesman for the company confirmed that the branch of the DIY chain at Ladymead Retail Park is to shut it's doors, with signs now being displayed outside.

The Guildford store was not listed as part of planned closures last year when the firm made cuts as a result of financial pressures and is not a factor behind why it is closing.

Whilst an exact date is yet to be confirmed, it is expected to close by the end of August 2019.

Homebase says there are no plans to relocate to another site in Guildford, but still has stores in Farnham, Woking, Godalming, Reigate and Staines.

In a statement Homebase said:

"Following the issuing of a break notice by the landlord, we can confirm that our Guildford store will be closing later this year.

"Every effort will be made to re-deploy team members where possible."

The vacant unit left behind is going to be filled by Currys PC World which will move from its current location in the neighboring retail site in  Woodbridge Road.

A Currys PC World Spokesperson said:

"As part of our usual store review process, we have decided to relocate our 3-in-1 Currys PC World store on Woodbridge Road in Guildford when the lease comes to an end in early 2020 to a near-by location on Europa Park Road."
