How we do it

At HomeSense, we deliver great value on ever-changing selections of branded and quality homeware and gifts from around the world, at prices up to 60% less than the RRP and at a significant discount to the prices in a department store or on the high street.

Real value for our shoppers

HomeSense is an off-price retailer. For us, value is a combination of brand, fashion, price and quality. Unlike traditional retailers, we generally don’t do promotions, sales, or other gimmicks; just branded homeware and one off gems at up to 60% less than the RRP and at a significant discount to the price in a department store or on the high street every single day. We’re also not an outlet store. An outlet store typically sells merchandise from a single manufacturer. We are different – we offer you brands from thousands of vendors around the world!

We're smart shoppers, just like you

Our buyers are on the hunt throughout the year for the hottest brand names and unique homeware for every room in the home —including kitchen and gourmet cookware, furniture and lighting, decorative items, wall art, bedding and bathroom accessories, toys and seasonal décor. We’ve even got accessories for your pet.

We buy from all kinds of vendors, including top homeware brands and designers, vendors known for high quality and artisans from around the world. We also have some merchandise manufactured for us to bring you exceptional quality at an amazing price. Our buyers choose many different colours, styles and fabrics so there are always lots of great choices for you. Our buyers are opportunistic and entrepreneurial. With a keen eye for brands, fashion and quality, they negotiate the lowest possible price and pass the savings on.

Sometimes, as they travel the globe, our buyers just can’t resist the amazing products they find. For example we buy beautiful cut glass from Poland, merino wool throws from Italy, handcrafted furniture from Indonesia and exquisite beauty products from all over the world. We are always seeking great brands, fashion, quality and value whenever and wherever we buy.

When it’s gone, it’s gone

Unlike other types of retailers that buy seasonally, we buy throughout the year and so have new homeware brands and eclectic styles arriving several times a week in our stores. So stop by often to see our latest homeware finds and unique gems, all with amazing savings!

The average HomeSense store receives several deliveries per week, with each delivery containing thousands of items. Our rapidly changing assortments create the treasure hunt shopping experience that our customers love.

If you love it, grab it! We don’t hold replenishment stock in our stock rooms and often, the store managers don’t even know what’s coming until they throw open the delivery lorry doors! That’s what makes us so exciting to shop.

The amount we buy from each brand varies greatly - sometimes we buy a little and at other times, we may buy a lot. What matters is that we think our customers will love the products and the prices.

No One Way We Buy

We sell a unique selection of homeware and gifts from around the world, including top brands, specialty merchandise, global treasures and one off finds, generally sold at up to 60% less than the RRP and at a significant discount to the price in a department store or on the high street. Most of our merchandise is current season styles. A small percentage is past season which we also offer at amazing savings to you.

We take advantage of a wide variety of opportunities, which can include department store cancellations, a manufacturer making up too much product or a great deal when a vendor simply wants to clear merchandise, as well as lots of other ways all of which bring you tremendous value.

Some of our merchandise is manufactured for us and some is designed by our own style experts, particularly when what we are seeing in the marketplace isn’t the right value for our customers, meaning the right combination of fashion, brand, quality and price.

Modern, no frills stores

Our stores are as flexible as we are. We have no walls between departments, so we can easily expand and contract merchandise categories to respond to the newest trends and changing customers’ tastes.

We love our bright, modern stores, and our lean, no-frills way of working helps us pass spectacular savings onto you. So, don’t expect fancy extras in our stores – just amazing brand, fashion, prices and quality.

All of this is what allows us to offer you a desirable and rapidly changing mix of high quality merchandise, always at amazing value! So whatever you desire for your home – new bedding, beautiful glassware, that perfect decorative object - we know that you will find something fun, individual and special at a great price every time you visit!
