Wickes’ big makeover – New store unveiled in Wigston

Home improvement retailer, Wickes celebrated the opening of its new store in Wigston with a weekend of activities kicking off on Friday, 1st February. The Mayor, Counsellor David Carter and Mayoress, Mrs Janet Carter of Oadby visited the store to officially cut the ribbon, and customers were treated to 15% off everything all weekend[1].

Those in store on Saturday, 2nd February, between 12 and 4pm enjoyed a whole host of family activities including face painting and having their photo taken with one of the UK’s most iconic four-legged friends – the Dulux dog.

The new Wickes store features a huge range of tiles and flooring, as well as an in-store Dulux colour mixing service and a huge range of Wickes paint to choose from. Customers can also get ideas and inspiration for their gardens by visiting the new outdoor garden project centre.

Furthermore, professional design consultants will be on hand in the kitchen and bathroom showroom offering support and friendly advice to customers who are undergoing transformation projects, together with providing a free design service. In addition, customers can continue to benefit from the Wickes Price Match Promise all year round[1].

Students from North Warwickshire and Hinckley College also attended the opening following their recent participation in a local VIY (Volunteer It Yourself) volunteering project at Elliott Hall, Wigston’s only independent community centre. The Wickes store in Wigston donated all the tools and materials required for the project and covered the cost of professional tradespeople to act as mentors on the ground. The youth and community centre now boasts two new spacious rooms after the young volunteers worked together to replace flooring that previously made the rooms unusable.

Michelle Dyer, Store Manager at Wickes, Wigston comments: “The store has been designed to make shopping for home improvement projects simpler than ever before, with the new layout making it easier to find everything customers need in one trip. Visitors can look forward to inspirational room sets across kitchens, showrooms and bathrooms, with a range of worktops, appliances and tiles on display. Our expert design consultants will also be on hand to help plan your dream space.”
