When you go to this store everything is laid out in a good logical order so there is normally no problem in finding what I want. Also we receive a free booklet every few months listing all of the items that the store sells. This gives me the opportunity to browse through the booklet ..." Read review

No need to shop around- Wickes offer best prices

AdvantagesExcellent range at keenest prices. If you're a woman you can get a bloke to help you...

DisadvantagesA boring experience if you are female and with a male who only gets enthusiastic when he is in Wickes

"...the things we needed from Wickes EG. a bathroom suite (which cost much less than elsewhere and is just as good), toilet seats plus other bits for bathrooms, our UPVC double-glazed windows (which fitted perfectly everytime and not one has had a blown seal causing condensation to get trapped between the panes), paving slabs, sand, concrete, ballast, wood, screws, nails, tape-measures, plumbing bits, paint/brushes, radiators, water butts... and we are ..."

If you want something done.... Do It Yourself!

AdvantagesGood products, friendly and helpful staff

Why use Wickes

AdvantagesExcellent prices

DisadvantagesRelatively limited range

"What Wickes excels at is a good basic range of building and DIY products at excellent prices. Most of it is Wickes' own brand but that's not a problem. It's probably made by the same manufacturers as the known Brands anyway. Recent example; a Harrison Drape curtain track on sale for £32.99 in Homebase is boxed in Wickes' own brand packaging for £14.99. If Wickes can make a profit at £14.99 then how much are Homebase making? Building materials, wood, ..." Read review
