Homebase Clearance Outlet - Peterborough

Eastern Ind. Est, Padholme Rd E, Peterborough PE1 5XL, UK – 0345 640 7545

This is a former branch of Homebase that now just sells discounted DIY goods. It has some excellent bargains and is laid out in a very similar way to any other DIY shop. The stock is not just old Homebase stock that is being sold off, they are always adding new stock. You can't find the breadth of items you normally would in a hardware shop but that's to be expected from a discount chain. They clearly sell whatever they can get at a low price. Quality isn't an issue as there are a lot of big name brands for sale. There are most of the normal departments that you'd expect. It had everything from garden furniture to tools to soft furnishings and plumbing. All in all its a good place to go before trying other hardware shops.

Lots of items from homebase in this outlet centre at reduced prices compared to the recommended retail prices. All departments as you would expect in a regular homebase except in an outlet. Bargains to be had if you know what you are looking for. Stock always changing. Well worth a visit. Staff helpful and friendly.

The Range, Peterborough

Umit 2, Boongate Retail Park, Padholme Rd, Peterborough PE1 5SX, UK – 01733 566686

So much to see, lots of choice, well laid out and a light airy store. Sometimes queues at the tills can be long but the staff do seem to be on it most of the time. Only niggle is having to run the gauntlet of double glazing or law companies pitching their wares by the exit door.. 🙄

The Range is one of my favourite shops and I can usually find what I need. My only complaint is the lack of air conditioning, it is unbearable in the Peterborough store and my family had to leave men in there. Would easily be 5 stars if more comfortable to shop.


Forty Acre Rd, Peterborough PE1 5PS, UK – 01733 342937

Actually pretty well priced, I am in the trade and usually avoid wickets and b and q due to the prices, however I was pleasantly surprised by the range of products and got a great deal on some flooring. Would definitely use again.

A great diy builder's merchant. Got good selection of materials and tools
