The Recovery Continues

Recommended Posts

Screwfix is the same business and many products are cheaper. Guess where people go?

Screwfix = bare min repair materials generally. You are fixing a house, not making a home,

BTL fodder.

Yep. They are closing the B&Q down in Launceston and opening a screwfix next door.

Plymouth suffers from a complete lack of quality management and having poor and expensive transport links to London.

there is also a significant can't do, won't happen, too difficult, can't be bothered so I'm off sailing mentality, as opposed to "can do, we can make it happen, it's achievable, I can be bothered so I'll go sailing later' Stems for a public secor that is too large.

There is a lot of cronyism and nepotism too

Yeah, that's true. The fast trains and the motorway end at Exeter, where the affluent southeast England gives way to "outer" England and an economy more conventionally labelled as the North. And the mentality leaves a lot to be desired.

[edit to add] Marsh Mills, the location of this B&Q, is one of the most dismal locations anywhere in the country.

Indeed, I notice screwfix becoming more expensive recently.

Presumably as they are owned by the Kingfisher Plc group, who also own B& Q, who are in trouble

Last time I was in B&Q I was there to buy a spokeshave. A very helpful assistant suggested I go to Toolstation on the same trading estate (and right adjacent to Srewfix) because Toolstation would be cheaper and better quality. I was actually heading to Toolsation, but I was checking prices at the others first.
