Advantages A good variety of goods under one roof, reasonably priced
Disadvantages Not of the very best quality but worth the price paid generally
I'm also pretty certain that most children preferred being dragged around Woolworths to Wilkinson's any day. But, saying this, I do love a wander around a Wilkinson store and admit to spending a good few bob in there.
I shop mostly in the Romford (Essex) store rather than the Ilford (Essex) store as I find the Romford shop is on one level making it easier to shop without having to use an escalator or lift, and the car park access is very easy. I also, although, this could just be me, but I find the staff to be just that extra bit more helpful and knowledgeable about their stock than in Ilford. However, for some, they may prefer Ilford owing to it having a small cafeteria and toilets (unfair though, I think that this is only for customers of the cafeteria and not the store as a whole. The toilets are locked when the cafeteria is closed. This annoys me as if they have the facility then it should be available to all customers. If I had young children with me whilst shopping here then I would ask to use thee toilets and certainly make a fuss if they were refused. I will say though that the last time I sneaked into the ladies toilet it wasn't as clean as it should have been, in my opinion.I have also shopped in Wilkinsons store in Canterbury, Kent as my son was a student there for three years and during our jaunts around the shops we would often pop into Wilko with him for his and his girlfriend's student buys.
