A new B&Q convenience store is set to open in Harrow before Christmas.

The shop - smaller than the traditional large B&Q warehouses - is part of a move to give easier access to home improvement essentials in the high street.

The new 3,800sq ft store will open at St Ann’s Road, Harrow, on November 18.

Mahmoud Itani, unit manager at the Harrow branch, said: “We’re really excited to be part of the Harrow community and can’t wait to start welcoming customers and providing inspiration and knowledge to help make DIY dreams a reality.

“Our new location in Harrow is easy for our local community to access for all their home improvement needs.”

The shop can be found at the former Poundland premises in 40-44 St Ann’s Road, Harrow.
