Depending how often you DIY, you may or may not not have noticed that during the prior two months that Waterlooville’s Wickes had been undergoing refurbishment?
I was invited by staff member Helen to pop along and take a guided tour of the revamped store; as someone who shops at Wickes on a regular basis the old store had, shall we say, become a little tatty.
A few of the changes include better overhead lighting, new heating, new floor, new kitchen/bathroom showroom, a click and collect area, and the size of the store has been increased. The revamped store is much improved and feels a lot friendlier, I’m told that many hundreds of additional products have been added due to the increase in floor space.
As some of you may already be able to tell, I’m a big fan of Wickes, so I’m pleased that this local store has received this investment (no, I haven’t been paid or rewarded to write this blog post, I just really like Wickes!).
Can you remember the celebrity that opened Wickes in the 90’s? Can you name him/her, and for bonus points, what was the year?
