This is a massive diy store with lots of parking and easy to find on the outskirts of Farnborough town.
They sell everything you could want.
Bright and with lots of room to move in the aisles.
Sometimes in the car park they have an extra part where they sell items cheap, so worth a look.
There is a little coffee shop inside if you fancy a break.
They will also do a delivery service for a fee but worth it if you havent got a van for the bigger items.
A very large and accessable B&Q in Farnborough, supported by an equally large customer car park. The place is located next door to ASDA and can be a real pain to get in and out of on busy weekends, so better to leave the DIY shopping to late evenings or early mornings.
This store has everything the budding DIYer or gardener needs at quite reasonable prices for a large DIY chain.
I tend to find smaller items like tapes, screws, nuts & bolts etc are not cheap here and can be found for a much more reasonable price at stores like Wilkinsons. However, for your larger items it is hard to beat with a very good returns policy if anything goes wrong with your purchased items.
The garden section can be excellent or very dissapointing, depending on which day of the week you go or what the weather is like when you get there. The place is typical of many large DIY type stores that try and take on the garden centres, i.e. there is plenty of choice (usually slightly cheaper), but the plants are not looked after, and many of them are dead or almost dead when you pick them up. I suppose you have to get in there early in the morning before the sun has a chance to dry them all out. Their garden equipment is quite expensive, however they do do an excellent line in composts, mulch etc which is the cheapest around.
They have a whole section of self-service tills in the store that need a cohort of staff to keep them working (they would be better off binning these tills and putting the staff on the normal tills). I steer well clear of these tills and usually go through the normal payment process much quicker than the poor old individual who spends their Sunday afternoon waiting for a member of staff to reset their self-service till !!!!
They also have a very good selection of free "How To" guides to help you get the most out of your DIY project.
On Sunday Craig from Big Brother was outside the store trying to sell garden products to passers by, but I don't suppose we can hold that against B&Q too much!!!
This store is the same as most large B&Qs - big, parking and carrying a wide range of stuff.
I prefer to use Wickes for the basics though.You have to fight to park in B&Q at the weekends and the shelves are often piled high with washing machines and air conditioning units but simple electrical bits or that certain screw size is often out of stock. The staff try to be helpful but often don't have a clue.
OK for buying loads of stuff at once but for a quick trip go down the road.
Fantastic diy store with lots of room in the aisles.
There are curtains, cushions, lighting, kitchens, bathrooms.
The bathroom department is very helpful and they have a design service as do the kitchens, if you take your measurement of the room you want refurbishing they will do you a computer generated picture.
There is a garden area out the back which also sells gravel, slabs, sheds, fence panels.
The store can get very busy especially at weekends.
The parking is good with alot of spaces.
Absolutely massive store/complex. Stocking, I would imagine, everything this chain sells. Well worth a visit but allow plenty of time-it really is huge
Ok so for any man this is heaven. Has a huge range of everything DIY from kitchens to hosepipes to cement to plants this shop has the lot under one roof. Has a small cafe located along the front of the shop, and helpful staff who knew a lot when i wanted to purchase my new kitchen and worktops. Very busy on weekends but then what do you expect with people decorating, gardening, diying.
