home improvement products). Feel fully informed - keep an eye out for their
latest special offers & exclusive online reductions.
Established in 1969 by Mr. R Block & Mr. D Quayle their principle aim in
the store was to produce an environment that would be less intimidating to the
DIY enthusiast yet offered a full range of building and home improvement supplies.
The first B&Q store was in Southampton - called Block & Quayle
after the business partners is was soon shortened to its current name B&Q.
The B&Q format of offering a broad range of building & DIY products
at low prices proved popular and along with extensions to traditional retail
hours this successful combination led to subsequent store expansions. Although
the DIY B&Q store chain and brand were acquired by the Kingfisher
group in the early 1980's this winning formula has not altered and the chain
has continued to expand. At present B & Q leads both UK and European
markets for Do It Yourself retail, globally it is the 3rd largest company. Other
figures about the firm that you may find interesting include:
No. employees approx. 35,000
Total retail space = over 20,000,000 sq. ft
Over £4 billion annual turnover (2004/5)
over £400,000,000 profit (2004/5)
With just under four hundred B&Q stores across the globe only sixty are
international - the remaining 300+ are based in the United Kingdom. Of these
300+ B and Q stores approximately 70 are mini-warehouses and over 100 are of
the larger format known as B&Q Warehouse - these are mainly located
out-of-town and stock most of their full 45,000+ range of DIY and gardening
products. The remainder that make up the rest of B&Q stores however are
the smaller and more traditional B&Q Superstore.
The B & Q web site for home purchasing and delivery of B&Q stock was
launched in 2001 - it has a fantastic array of their DIY & garden merchandise
as well as latest offers, clearance & special reduced items. The web store
