DIY shop open Easter Sunday???

Post by FrancesD »

Hi all

We're looking for a diy shop open today. We're on the hunt for PVA glue after discovering yesterday that we needed far more than anticipated to fill the cracks in our floor boards with (mixed with sawdust of course). We missed B&Q by 10 minutes last night (they closed an hour earlier than normal), sainsburys only had child sized pots (we reckon we need about 3 litres to finish off) and we've already checked the opening hours of the DIY shop on the high street and they are closed today. Wickes and Homebase are also closed, any other suggestions? Thanks!

Musti's Pound Plus store on Sydenham Road undoubtedly have PVA glue, although possibly not in the size you want.

I used papiermache (with some PVA and colouring) to fill in floorboard cracks. For more substantial gaps I cut strips from a grey foam pipe insulator and forced them into the cracks.

Regards
Chris

Surely shops can be closed for one day. A Holy Day to many.

Thanks Chris.

Just got some at Martin's Services on Elmers End road. On the left hand side just after the graveyard. She said she'd be open until 2pm.
