Homebase stores are not open today. The company had been keeping its stores open during the UK coronavirus lockdown but on Wednesday March 25 it announced that, due to updated government guidance it would be temporarily closing all Homebase stores across the UK from 6pm on March 25.

It has not said when it expects for Homebase stores to open. The good news, if you're at home and you want to use some of that time to carry out a bit of DIY around the house or garden is that Homebase online shopping remains open at homebase.co.uk after the website was taken offline on the morning of Friday March 27 until 8am. Homebase says it took the site down to make "some improvements" to its website, no doubt trying to ensure that it does not crash under the load of increased shoppers.

Do note that due to demand, online orders are taking longer to be delivered than normal. Homebase says that "in some instances there is a 2-3 day delay on items ordered for home delivery". The latest Homebase reviews on Trustpilot appear to reflect these delays.
