New Bunnings for Somerset in Homebase conversion

A total of 20 new jobs will be created as Weston-super-Mare's Homebase store is turned into a Bunnings Warehouse store.

Bunnings Warehouse has confirmed that the current Homebase store on Bristol Road in Worle near Weston Super Mare will be replaced by a new store under the Bunnings brand later this year.

Bunnings, which bought Homebase for £340m in January 2016, plans to rebrand 20 Homebases this year.

B&Q, which will announce results on 17 July, has a flagship at Cribbs Causeway in Bristol.

Bunnings UK has so far rebranded four stores in Kent and four in the Hertfordshire area, at Hemel Hempstead, Milton Keynes and two in St Albans, suggesting that the roll-out will include several others in Somerset.
