They've taken over the Homebase chain, who were already shite, the first
re-branded store is due to open next month.
So far all they seem to have done is crammed the aisles with low-grade
stuff, basically they're still not on my list of places to go for DIY stuff.
Assuming they can get the IT done in time. HRG outsourced everything to
Toshiba shortly before selling out to Bunnings, and most of the IT staff
said "Fuck that noise" and left, so there are very few left who know how
(A friend has been hired back at 3 times his previous salary to help sort
out the mess.)
Today is Sweetmorn, the 26th day of Chaos in the YOLD 3183
I don't have an attitude problem.
Recently, cushions and dried flowers had displaced so much of the tools
and materials, their in-store saws for cutting wood disappeared years ago.
I did notice the one here now has a "free wood" bin near the exit, which
sounded like a good idea, as a schoolboy I remember going and paying
pennies for offcuts from the timber shop ... but when I looked in it all
there was, was damaged laminate flooring :-(
