COVID-19 Update – We’re Open For When You Need Us

Following the Prime Minister’s COVID-19 guidance on the 23rd March, Toolstation was categorised as an essential retailer. We temporarily suspended trading and closed our business for 24 hours while we established the best way to provide the essential services and products we supply to our customers who keep Britain sheltered, warm, dry and secure.

The safety of our people, our customers and the communities we serve will always be our number one priority. With that in mind, we carefully considered how to reopen in a socially distanced and responsible way, so that we can continue to supply the trades who provide essential maintenance and services to keep our critical infrastructure maintained, secure and operational during this current crisis.

Our 400+ branches are open for contactless Click & Collect, drive up purchases and returns. Free Next Business Day delivery for orders over £25 to home and site is available – we apologise that our stock levels are not at our usual levels due to supply constraints.
