Pretty well known, I think. The two guys that started B & Q (their initials BTW, the names I've forgotten) based the corporate imaging on Home Depot in the States. Kingfisher have owned B & Q for many years now.
Last piece of useless trivia - Screwfix moving their warehouse from Somerset to the Midlands this year, so will be plenty of stock on clearance.
BTW, do we need a poll on the corporate ownership?

Clearance bargains? I doubt it. More like your order will come from two different places until they've used the stock up in Zummerset... :?

Registered cynic, Alf :wink:

B&Q do NOT own Screwfix. They are both part of the Kingfisher group.
