Homebase to close
Homebase at Newbury Retail Park is closing.
Signs have been added to the entrance of the building telling customers that the store will be closing for good.
Homebase's news came as plans for a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) were revealed that would see 42 shops out of 250 branches closing. Following Homebase’s CVA announcement in August 2018, ongoing discussions have continued with landlords regarding the future of store leases.
Last month a planning application to remove the garden centre and replace it with additional car parking were submitted. This follows a separate application to West Berkshire Council to allow a retailer to sell food from the unit.
