Swindon's B&Q superstore used to be situated on Fleming Way.

A large crowd queued up outside the homeware, DIY, and garden specialist when it first opened in December 1988.

Construction vehicles and equipment covered the brownfield site in the months before that as the new unit took shape.

Staff donned fancy dress and posed for pics outside the store entrance when it reopened in 1995 after a major renovation.

In March 1997, the shop's oldest employee, 83-year-old Reg Hill, presented a £2,000 cheque to Prospect Hospice after organising a fundraising event.

MPs occasionally visited the retailer, as one photo shows Julia Drown MP being shown around the aisles in 2000.

In April 1989, Simon Coombs MP met with Dave Hill, Barry Martin, and Charles Bonar from B&Q after he praised businesses that planned to trade on Sundays despite that being illegal (with exceptions) at the time. Shops trading on Sundays became legal in 1994.

In the early 2000s, B&Q completed a major move to new premises on Great Western Way.

The large unit it left is now home to The Range.
