When I moved back to Hedge End 5.5 years ago I didn’t move back because of the great shops we had near us! We had some large supermarkets and a few good shops but the past couple years I have watched the shops grow and they have improved so much.

There has been lots of hype and rumors around what shop we would be getting next and who was going to fill this large empty store since the old Wickes moved out. Well, now we know!

On 22nd October the new TK Maxx and HomeSense store is opening at 10am!


I think that these are a great choice in shops to bring to Hedge End, TK Maxx is fantastic for picking up designer labels and top brands at up to 60% less than the price you’d pay at department stores or on the high street.

I love the fact that they have one off pieces so you don’t need to worry about the whole of Hedge End walking around in the same clothes! This often happens on the school run!

Not only is TK Maxx coming to Hedge End, the store will span over two floors at 38,659 sq ft / 3,592 square metres so it has plenty of room to bring it’s sister brand HomeSense to Hedge End too.

If you haven’t heard of HomeSense before they are a part of the TK Maxx family. If you love TK Maxx home, then you are going to love HomeSense.


They have savings of up to 60% on branded and quality homeware and gifts, with new deliveries arriving every day. Departments include, furniture, dining, storage, accessories, kitchen, bedroom, gifts, bath and body and garden. There is something for everyone!


If you fancy taking a look at what the new HomeSense Hedge End has to offer then it is opening on Thursday 22nd October at 10am, Tollbar Way, Botley Road SO30 2QY. Which for those who know the area, it is in the old Wickes store, opposite Burger King.

They also have a ‘Curiosity Cabinet’ in-store where customers on the first day who spend over £30 will be given a key to try and unlock the cabinet….I wonder what is in there?!

  4. I love home sense! We’ve recently moved and now there is none anywhere near us, boo!! We do have a TK Maxx, but I need to make an excuse to travel so that we can get some bits for our new house (4weeks and counting….) Looks like you enjoyed writing this one! Xx
