Homebase has formed a partnership with Tesco to add its DIY products to the supermarket.

The first shop-in-shop opens on March 19 in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire. A further two will open in Walkden, Greater Manchester, and Woolwich, London, in April.

The stores will stock a variety of Homebase’s home and DIY products including paint, power tools and homewares, as well as seasonal items such as outdoor furniture and garden decorations in time for spring and summer.

Kitchen, bathroom and lighting displays will also provide inspiration for bigger projects, and Homebase experts will be on hand to advise shoppers.

Customers will also be able to take advantage of a click-and-collect service, placing an order on the Homebase website to collect within an hour.

The move comes a year after Homebase formed a partnership with Next to open garden centres in 11 of the fashion retailer’s bigger stores.

Homebase chief executive Damian McGloughlin said: “We’re really excited to be partnering with Tesco, bringing our home and garden products and expertise to even more local communities.

“We’re always looking for ways to make it easier for customers to shop with us and teaming up with Tesco means we’re able to do just that.”
