Homebase to close St. John’s Store


Homebase has announced it will look to close its St. Johns store on Rope Walk.

It’s one of 42 stores being closed across the UK, putting at risk 1500 jobs. Bosses say it’s part of a restructure to help save the struggling store and part of a Company Voluntary Arrangement with its creditors.

There is no suggestion the store in Riverfield Drive will be affected.
