The chain has made changes to opening times to accommodate the festive period, meaning customers may want to check in advance before planning a visit. Here’s all you need to know.
Is Homebase open over the Christmas Bank Holiday?
Homebase stores will be closed on both Christmas day and Boxing day to give staff time to celebrate the festive period.
Most stores will be open on Christmas eve, but with reduced hours, and will close at 4pm.
The best way to find out if your nearest branch is open is to head online and use its store checker tool.
The company has a page dedicated to information on its individual branches.
