Comparison website, Kitchen Compare has announced that B&Q has been named ‘Lowest Priced National DIY Retailer of Kitchens 2019’ for a third year running, beating rivals including, Homebase and Wickes.
The accolade has been awarded to B&Q for consistently having the lowest priced kitchens throughout 2019. The results follow Kitchen Compare’s meticulous daily activity monitoring and recording the prices, finance deals and promotional activity of directly comparable kitchens sold by UK’s DIY retailers every single day in 2019.
Kitchen Compare’s analysis takes a unique directly comparable 8-unit ‘Galley’ model, consisting of 50 individual components, across 34 different styles, sold across a variety of retailers and records the prices daily throughout the year. At the end of 2019, price data is analysed to establish which retailer’s prices were the lowest across the comparable styles.
The data showed B&Q had more than double as many comparable, lowest priced kitchens as its closest competitors - scooping the award across 12 kitchens, compared to Homebase’s two, and Wickes’ three.
Steve Collinge, managing director at Kitchen-Compare.com said: “It’s our mission to make it as easy and transparent as possible for shoppers to purchase their dream kitchen. Every day we monitor the activity of the UK’s leading kitchen retailers, including tracking the individual component prices of comparable kitchen styles. As a result, we have the most robust possible data which allows us to confirm with certainty that B&Q are consistently outperforming competitors, including Homebase, and Wickes, to offer the lowest priced kitchens.”
Iain McColgan, director of showrooms at B&Q, said: “We’re thrilled to be independently recognised for offering customers the best value kitchens for the third year in a row, and the news follows the recent launch of a new range of GoodHome kitchens – the first for over 10 years.
"At B&Q, we’re committed to helping customers create their dream home at an affordable price, delivering value with year round low prices across all home improvement products.”
