As part of a right size project for Homebase, Bluestones were requested to supply a Project Manager and an installation and merchandising team to support with stock exit, reconfiguration of the store and re-merchandising. This was to enable Homebase to build a wall and create a ‘new store’ on one side of the existing unit.
The Bluestones team had to liaise with various contractors and the store team to deliver the reduction in stock holding and the reconfiguration in a relatively short timescale. This was challenging but well managed by all parties and was overcome through daily updates from the on-site team. All activity had to be well managed to enable the store to trade throughout the whole period.
The first phase was well delivered by our team. We look forward to returning to complete the merchandising of the ‘new store’.
