The Homebase store in Towcester is set to close on April 4, it has been announced.

Last October, Home Retail Group, the company that runs Homebase, announced plans to cut the number of Homebase stores by 25 per cent by 2019 due to the fact a number of stores were unprofitable.

A Homebase spokeswoman said that, following a consultation, Homebase was closing its store in Towcester.

The spokeswoman said: “Discussions are being held with colleagues to find alternative employment both within and outside of Home Retail Group.

“We remain committed to serving the local community, with customers able to visit our neighbouring Homebase store in Northampton.”
