B&Q’s new Colchester store was declared officially open today with a formal cutting of the ribbon by the Mayor of Colchester, Councillor Robert Davidson.

Relocated from B&Q Lightship Way to Stane Park’s brand-new retail park, B&Q is the first to open at the new development.

Caroline Voutsinas, B&Q Stane Park, Store Manager, said: “DIY has really captured the imagination of the nation over the past 18-months, so our new and improved B&Q in Colchester is very timely, giving Colchester DIY-ers and tradespeople a much improved store experience with plenty of exciting new features to make home improvement easier than ever. I cannot wait to welcome the local community into the store.”

To celebrate the new store, the UK’s leading home improvement retailer is inviting Colchester residents to take part in a fun-filled extravaganza of activities on Friday 29 October.

The centre-piece of the celebration will be a mural inspired by Colchester, painted by award winning local artist and BBC Great Interior Design Challenge finalist Lucy Tiffney From 7am until 3pm on 29 October, Lucy will be outside the new store, equipped with paint pots and brushes, and B&Q is inviting the people of Colchester to help join in and bring it to life.
