Texas Homecare was established in 1972, and was acquired by Ladbrokes in 1986. In 1995, Sainsbury's bought the company, and began to convert the majority of the stores to the Homebase brand, although some stores were sold off to other retailers; including the store in Merry Hill in the West Midlands, which was split between PC World and Currys. The last sixty stores were converted to Homebase in 1999.
