mine is burnage
Kettering or Wigston, accounting for traffic, Kettering would be my first choice, as Wigston is traffic light city.
2 minute cycle away.
I know where the nearest Travis Perkins is though, so that makes me three times the man you are, at least.
i thought it would. what's your next step?
the word is closest? it's relative! there's must be. email them and find out
both pretty much equidistant - around 3miles from base camp
but when you get a chance to talk about your local b&q look at you all!
This is so banal that it counts as two
which, for three years in the 70s, used to be the Hardrock and Village. The structure is pretty much unchanged and big tower that has B&Q written on it now had a big neon sign at the top advertising itself as the Village. Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Bob Marley, Elton John, Hawkwind, Yes and Lou Reed performed there. They also had regular club night where you'd find some totally hip young cats like this: http://www.soul-source.co.uk/soulforum/uploads/post-5097-12591781884281_thumb.jpg
don't worry. it'll pass
more usernames will fix it
worked REALLY hard.
Now take the rest of the year off.
There's a Wickes Extra just down the road though.
but not today.
have a great weekend.
i've got a busy one but that's the best way at the moment.
It's a really big branch actually, a few years old now. According to google maps it's just over 3 miles from me - a 7 minute drive.
if you've gone on google maps at least link us a streetview
Not sure if this'll work, but try it anyway: http://goo.gl/maps/GLsz
Fitness First up the street (my gym), and a retail park 30 seconds away with a Sainsburys, Halfords, JJB, Pizza Hut, Burger King, all the usual suspects.
that covers everything i think
do they all have trade points?
i don't know what one is
and get discounts. I once got told off for trying to buy some decorators caulk from the trade section even though i wasn't a tradesman :(
If you try to scan trade stuff on the normal self-serve till it comes up as £999.99 and at the trade counter you need to show 'em your card.
Your nearest store: Shrewsbury, Wales.
Yeah, nice store locator!!!!
are Castorama, and Obi. The thing I like about Obi is that there is also a shop near the Obi in town called Max. This obviously is a gold mine for Max and OB Hollyoaks jokes, but since 99.9% of all conversation I have are with Polish people, or 30+ transatlantic expats, I've had to keep them to myself.
the closest picture to Obi is on this map
the closest dot to the letter A. But it's in the opposite direction, of the main Basillica in town.
The only parts of Poland covered with street view are/were the host nations. I noticed Lodz is now on streetview, but Katowice and most of the rest of Silesia are reduced to one photograph every 200 metres or so.
That said, it's not a huge store, the one down by the riverside is much bigger so usually worth the extra journey time.
