The store in Roundtree Way, Sprowston is among the first Homebase branches to be re-branded to Bunnings as part of a pilot scheme by the firms’ Australian parent company.

It will also offer services from paint mixing to timber cutting, as well as in-store DIY workshops.

Norwich Sprowston complex manager for Bunnings, Kevin Chalcraft, said: “All our team members have worked really hard to get the store ready for opening and have undertaken many hours of training to make sure we have the expertise to help customers with home or garden projects.”

To celebrate the opening, former Premier League footballer Grant Holt joined a welcome breakfast for team members.

The store is hosting two weekends of activities for customers on April 7-8 and April 14-15.
